Open runner-up Zalatoris WDs from Travelers
Will Zalatoris has withdrawn from this week’s Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut, a move announced by the PGA Tour a day after he finished as runner-up in the U.S. Open.
Zalatoris, the world No. 12, missed a 14-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have put him in a playoff with winner Matt Fitzpatrick on Sunday at the Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.
“This one, in particular, hurts pretty hard,” Zalatoris said after his sixth top-10 finish in nine major starts, including three second-place finishes.
