Paige Spiranac loved the drama of the playoffs and enjoyed every second of it
The opening two rounds of the playoff featured a stroke-for-stroke contest between Will Zalatoris and Sepp Straka. On the third hole, though, Zalatoris was able to put his ball in while Straka was unable to. The outcome was Zalatoris’ maiden victory on the PGA Tour for 2021–2022. Zalatoris had a difficult year in 2022. He tied for sixth in the Masters before losing to Luke List in a playoff for the Farmers Insurance Open.
He finished second at the PGA Championship, just missing out on a playoff victory over Justin Thomas, and then tied for second at the U.S. Open. Possibly this first victory in a tournament playoff will give Zalatoris the confidence boost he requires to begin the 2022–23 PGA Tour with more vigor.
