TULSA, Okla. — Will Zalatoris is looking to keep the Southern Hills major streak alive.
Aiming for his first PGA Tour win, Zalatoris might make the 2022 PGA Championship his first title. And that would keep alive a crazy stat: of the seven major championships played at Southern Hills, all were won by a player who led or co-led the tournament through 36 holes.
Zalatoris zoomed up the leaderboard Friday with second-round 65 to take the solo lead at 9 under. He tees off at 2:50 p.m., CT, in the final group with Mito Pereira.
Friday night, The Caddie Network‘s John Rathouz caught up with the caddie for Zalatoris, Ryan Goble, who was enjoying some “veg time” after a dinner of Mexican food in Tulsa.
Topics of discussion included how Zalatoris seems to always step it up in majors as well as what it’s like to play in a group behind Tiger Woods.
