Will Zalatoris is the name to watch on the final day of The Masters on Sunday.
A close friend of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Zalatoris is currently all alone in second place in the final round of The Masters. Zalatoris, 24, is currently -8 on the tournament. He’s through one hole on Sunday, trailing the leader, Hideki Matsuyama, by three strokes.
“Will’s like a little brother to me,’’ Romo told the New York Post. “I’m obviously a little nervous rooting for him this weekend, so I’m really excited.’’
According to Jim Nantz, Romo has been predicting Zalatoris’ success for a while.
“I told people two years ago when he didn’t even have status on the Korn Ferry Tour, ‘I think he’s a top-20 player in the world right now,’’’ Romo said. “Everyone laughed at me, but I said, ‘It’s just a matter of time.’ And you’re seeing it play out pretty quickly in front of the world stage this weekend.’’
We could get to see Zalatoris having a special moment on the 18th green on Sunday. He’s reportedly dating Caitlin Sellers.
The couple has reportedly been together for three-plus years. Sellers reportedly has two degrees, one from Texas and one from Wake Forest.
Perhaps we’ll get a special final round from Zalatoris on Sunday.
The final round of The Masters is currently airing on CBS.
