If you go through the entrants for this week’s PGA TOUR event at Pebble Beach, it’s hard not to notice that this is a weaker field. Sure there are players like Patrick Cantlay, Daniel Berger, Paul Casey, and Jason Day, but there isn’t one golfer in the Official World Golf Ranking’s (OWGR) top-10 who will participate in the tournament. In fact, the highest-ranked golfer at Pebble Beach, according to the OWGR, will be Cantlay, who is ranked 11th.
The reality is that this tournament is wide open given the weaker field compared to what we’ve seen in the past, so why not Zalatoris.
OWGR ranks him in the top-50 golfers, and at number 49, he’s already up 10 spots from his ranking at the end of the previous year. He missed only one cut in 22 events, won one tournament, and finished in the top-10 13 times while splitting his time between the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA tour.
Zalatoris is priced at 19-1, and when you factor his play in addition to a weaker field, it’s just too much value to pass up.
