TL;DR news on Will Zalatoris at April 22, 2023
After watching the advantage shift even further in his direction, Zalatoris then decided to take a penalty himself, as hitting the ball off the stone ledge had disaster potential. He battled with Sepp Straka in a juicy playoff that ended with Zalatoris sinking another huge putt to get his first PGA Tour victory. Rory McIlroy is the +1000 favorite, but the player taking the most action at Caesars Sportsbook is Will Zalatoris, now priced +2500. "The public loves Zalatoris, they're just itching to see him hoist a trophy on the PGA Tour," said Anthony Salleroli, Lead Golf Trader at Caesars. Jim Furyk was the last American winner of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in 2006 and Zalatoris could become the fifth winner from the United States. Zalatoris opened with a 71 that put him in such a hole that even his fiancee wanted to know their plans if he didn't make it to the weekend.
