NAPLES, FL. (November 30, 2021) – Steve Stricker has withdrawn from next week’s QBE Shootout due to a nagging, non-covid related virus and will be replaced by Will Zalatoris, who will be paired with Sean O’Hair.
This will be Zalatoris’ first appearance in the QBE Shootout. He is one of five players in the field for the first time. Zalatoris finished runner-up in his debut start at the Masters Tournament this spring and was tied for sixth at the 2020 U.S. Open. The Wake Forest standout started last season with no TOUR status but earned membership on the strength of eight top ten finishes and was voted by his peers Rookie of the Year. The California native is currently ranked #32 in the world.
The QBE Shootout will once again feature a scramble format during the first round, a modified alternate shot format on Saturday and a final-round better ball on Sunday.
