Will Zalatores get out of the challenge of the world of hero Tiger Woods

Will Zalatoris has been forced to withdraw from the challenge of upcoming world champion Tiger Woods.

Zalatores’ back injury, which he sustained during the second leg of last season’s FedEx Cup qualifiers, still appears to be causing the young American’s discomfort.

Zalatoris, previously one of the top starters on this year’s PGA Tour, pulled out during the third round of the BMW Championship.

An MRI scan later confirmed that the 26-year-old Texan had a herniated pirate, which also forced him to miss the Tour Championship in East Lake and his chance at $18 million Jackpot win.

Rory McIlroy later won that tournament and was impressed with the victory this week.

Zalatores would also have been bitterly disappointed to miss the 2022 Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow.

However, he was still at the site and gave his full support to the American side.

Zalatoris was replaced on the field in Tiger’s Hero World Challenge by Shane Lowry. The tournament takes place from November 28 to December 4.

Woods hosts the tournament every year in Albany, Bahamas. This was the scene last year where Woods was photographed hitting golf balls on the field wearing red on Sunday for the first time after his car accident.

The 82-time PGA Tour winner hasn’t named himself as a participant yet, but there are still three open spaces sparking speculation he might tie it up yet.

This is the current field:

  • Scotty Scheffler
  • Tony Vino
  • Xander Shaveli
  • Billy Horschel
  • John Rahm
  • Hideki Matsuyama
  • Justin Thomas
  • Cameron Young
  • Colin Morikawa
  • Sanjay M
  • Shane Lowry
  • Max Homa
  • Matt Fitzpatrick
  • Tom Kim
  • Victor Hovland
  • Sam Burns
  • Jordan Spieth
  • TBC Tournament Exemption
  • TBC Tournament Exemption
  • TBC Tournament Exemption

In total , 16 subordinate 17 All players on the field confirmed they are Tour winners, with only Cameron Young, who won the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year last season, as the only player not to win on the track so far.

Victor Hovland is back to defend his one-shot title win over Scotty Schaeffler last year.

It is not known when Zalatores will return from injury, but he still expects big things in 2022-2023.

He earned his first PGA Tour win at the FedEx St. Jude at TPC Southwind last season before hurting his back in the next event.

Zalatoris was also unfortunate that he did not win a major championship as he finished second twice.

He was overtaken by England’s Matthew Fitzpatrick at the US Open at The Country Club in Brooklyn and lost in a three-hole playoff by Justin Thomas at the PGA Championship in the South Hills.
