Will Zalatoris has withdrawn from the 2023 Masters due to injury before getting to the first tee at Augusta National.
Due to injury, @WillZalatoris has officially withdrawn from the Masters Tournament prior to starting his first round. #themasters— The Masters (@TheMasters) April 6, 2023
Zalatoris backed up his first career PGA Tour win in 2022 at the FedEx St. Jude Championship with a withdrawal the next week at the BMW Championship due to a back injury. Since he returned in January, he made six of seven cuts, including a fourth place finish at the Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles in February.
The Wake Forest graduate was +4500 to win the Masters at DraftKings Sportsbook before today’s play began, and for his bettors they must be happy he didn’t put a peg in the ground; all bets on Zalatoris will be refunded as he didn’t begin play.
