gg Davis Riley. I can't imagine what it feels like to be runner-up two years in a row.

Kind of a dick move to hole out when you're already up 3

What an an amazing turnaround.

Huge congrats ship and Will! So exciting to follow someone from the beginning all the way through a USGA championship like this. You see how much good golf it takes. Looking forward to sweating the US Am.

@ScottFawcett

He goes at 12 on Monday and 7:20 on Tuesday. I hate match play, but I really think he's going to ship---this one.

Through his friendship with fellow Bent Tree member Billy Weiss, Zalatoris acquired a Congressional Gold Medal once bestowed upon 1939 U.S. Open champion Byron Nelson for his humanitarian efforts. Weiss was good friends with Nelson and used to walk the 18th green at the annual Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas. Nelson handed the medal down to Weiss, who shortly before his death decided he wanted to bequeath it to Zalatoris.

Awesome! The kid is even good enough to overcome the Riverman jinx. Serious talent and/or caddying.

Re: 2014 Texas State Am to US Junior

Thanks all of course. What a week! That second round was simply amazing. He was so cool and collected. He was a little out of sync the first round and I thought that a lunch, shower, and regroup was going to be exactly what he needed to come out and smoke it.

He gained great experience and got to shake the nerves off throughout the first 18 and still shot a few under. Then he simply lit up the last 18. I'll have a trip report in a day or two, but have to please the wife today.

Here's a good article:
