Will Zalatoris this season earned nearly $ 3.45 million through 24 PGA Tour events, of which eight times finished in the top 10, but still outside the FedEx Cup competition.

PGA Tour and its affiliated Second Division – Korn Ferry Tour (KFT) – in the 2020-2021 season from September 2020. Zalatoris can attend both, in which KFT with official card and PGA Tour according to sponsors.

And in just two months of being limited to the PGA Tour, the American golfer got a special temporary membership card, largely thanks to three top 8 finishes across four tournaments, including the T6 major US Open.

With his new position, Zalatoris continues to stir up the PGA Tour, adding five more occasions to the top 10, including the runner-up at the major Masters in April and the T8 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational on 8/8. Busy “side front”, so Zalatoris rarely appears on the main battlefield but is still in the top 10 of the promotion race. And totaling from the beginning of the season in both arenas, Zalatoris holds nearly four million USD in prize money. The UK is ranked 29th in the world (OWGR table).

But the $3.45 million and eight top 10 wins that Zalatoris won on the PGA Tour are zero in the late-stage FedEx Cup, of which $15 million goes to the champion. Because Zalatoris is not an official member, it is not counted in this race. Thus, he is now considered “empty-handed” through 24 stages.

This week, the PGA Tour wraps up its regular 2020-2021 season with the Wyndham Championship from August 12-15 in North Carolina. After the tournament, the top 125 FedEx Cup tables will enter a series of three playoff events from which the FedEx Cup results will be closed. If counted, Zalatoris should be 26th with 1,270 points.

With the current state, the only way forward for Zalatoris is to win the Wyndham Championship. “My situation can only win. Otherwise go home,” Zalatoris shared with the media before the tournament.

The “culprit” that brought Zalatoris into this irony scene was Covid-19.

In March 2020, PGA closed the entire system due to the outbreak of the disease. At that time, they did not know the time of the rematch, so they froze the process of demoting existing members and promoting from KFT. Deciding for the sake of the common good turned out to be a loss for Zalatoris. By that time, he was in high form and opened the door to First place – after 16 events topping the KFT bounty in November 2020.
