Will Zalatoris fired rounds of 71-63-65-66 to wind up 15-under-par en route to a clutch playoff win at TPC Southwind during the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship.
Zalatoris finally got the monkey off his back, leaving behind four runner-up finishes with a remarkably clutch three-hole playoff win over Sepp Straka. An incredible series of bounces on the third playoff at Hole 11 left Zalatoris with the opportunity to attempt another stroke from the drop-zone, resulting in an accurate iron shot that led to his birdie putt. Zalatoris started the weekend +1 but three masterful performances and a playoff win catapulted him over Scottie Scheffler to rank first place in the FedExCup entering the BMW Championship event next weekend.
