Every year it seems key players are missing from major championships, but rarely as many as there are missing this year's PGA Championship.
The second major of the year, this year's PGA Championship is set for 18-21 May in Rochester, New York at Oak Hill Country Club.
And Zalatoris, 26, is just one of many stars that will not be making the trip to New York for this year's tournament.
After two runner-up finishes at the majors last year, Zalatoris underwent back surgery earlier this season and is out for the remainder of the 2023 campaign.
He's also not the only star missing the major next week due to recent surgery.
Tiger Woods is undoubtedly the biggest name missing from this year's field list, as the 82-time PGA Tour winner recently underwent ankle surgery.
On the other side of things, there's also players like Sergio Garcia, who didn't qualify for the PGA Championship field as a result of joining LIV Golf last season.
The Spaniard will miss a major for the first time since 1999, per the Associated Press' Doug Ferguson.
Here's a list of some of the biggest names that will be missing from next week's major:
- Tiger Woods
- Sergio Garcia
- Will Zalatoris
- Lee Westwood
- Henrik Stenson
- Ian Poulter
- Louis Oosthuizen
- Marc Leishman
- Kevin Na
- Bubba Watson
