William Patrick Zalatoris (born August 16, 1996) is an American professional golfer on the PGA Tour. He won the 2020 TPC Colorado Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour. He finished second in the 2021 Masters Tournament, while making his debut.
Representing Trinity Christian Academy in suburban Dallas, Texas, Zalatoris won the U.S. Junior Amateur title in 2014. He attended Wake Forest University in North Carolina, and was named ACC Player of the Year in 2017. He was also a member of the U.S. Walker Cup team in 2017, teammates with future PGA Tour winners Collin Morikawa and Cameron Champ. He left school before his senior year to turn professional.
Zalatoris turned professional in 2018 but failed to make it past First Stage of the Korn Ferry Tour Q School. With no status in 2019, Zalatoris relied on Monday qualifying and sponsor exemptions to play in Korn Ferry Tour events. He secured membership for the remainder of the season on July 7 after a tie for third at the LECOM Health Challenge, and finished the regular season 60th in points, earning full status for the 2020 season.
Zalatoris' first professional victory came in July 2020, when he won the TPC Colorado Championship by one stroke. The win moved him to first place on the Korn Ferry Tour points list and qualified him for the U.S. Open at Winged Foot. At the U.S. Open, he aced the par-3 7th hole during the first round, very nearly replicating it six holes later, and tied for sixth place, at five-over par, alongside world number one Dustin Johnson; it was his first top-10 finish in a major championship. He followed it up with a T8 at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship, and secured Special Temporary Member status after the Bermuda Championship in early November.
