Will Zalatoris and Sahith Theegala to team up at Zurich Classic 2024

Will Zalatoris and Sahith Theegala, two fan favorites and budding superstars on the PGA Tour, are set to team up for the 2024 Zurich Classic on April 25-28 at TPC Louisiana in New Orleans.

Theegala (ranked No. 14 in the Official World Golf Ranking) won the Fortinet Championship last September, while Zalatoris (No. 30) has finished inside the top two twice since returning to action after spending some time on the sidelines due to a back injury.

“Will has bounced back extremely well after missing nearly a full season from major back surgery,” said Steve Worthy, CEO of the Fore!Kids Foundation, producer of the tournament. “Meanwhile, Sahith is building off his first Tour victory last year with three top-10 finishes this season already, ”

At last week’s Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, Theegala tied for ninth while Zalatoris missed the cut.

In two starts at the Zurich Classic, Theegala missed the cut in 2022 and tied for 23rd in 2023. Zalatoris, on the other hand, has made just one start at TPC Louisiana, eventually tying for fourth alongside Davis Riley (one of this year’s defending champions).
