TULSA, Oklahoma – Bunkers have caused some problems for players this week in the South Hills, as have dense Bermuda, but what about concrete?
When Will Zalatoris went long on the sixth par-3 green in the final round on Sunday and nearly finished on 61st. St. in Tulsa, he decided that the best option would be to take an unplayable one and throw it in the way of the carts.
His ball went into a groove on the trajectory of the cart, but it was still the best option for Zalatoris, who equaled the lead during his tee shot.
What could have been a disaster for the Wake Forest product turned into an incredible scarecrow and possibly the ups and downs of a week after he tossed it from concrete to turf before dropping an 8ft foot to get away with it. four.
Tonight’s victory will be Zalatoris’ first major championship and his first PGA Tour victory.
