Will Zalatoris won his first PGA Tour event on Sunday, prevailing in a wild playoff

Will Zalatoris is a rising star in the golf world, and he “selfishly” is begging the legendary Tiger Woods to “get in the damn cart” after Woods’ tragic car accident that nearly killed him in 2021.

Tiger’s injuries have cost him opportunities on the links, and when he plays, it’s obvious to see the pain he’s in.

As This is Insider correspondent Cork Gaines first noted on Twitter during The Masters, “Uh oh. Tiger Woods walking with a bit of a limp today that we didn’t see earlier in the week.”

If Woods wanted, he could apply for an exemption with the PGA to use a cart during his matches. Zalatoris wants him to do exactly that, but he understands why Woods may be hesitant.

“The part that amazes me is he has such a hard time walking, but man, he can still play some good golf,” Zalatoris said on the latest episode of “In Depth with Graham Bensinger.”

“Tiger could get a cart if he wants to. But you know he’s never going to take it. Because that’s who he is. And it’s like, selfishly, I’m like, ‘Dude, get in the cart. I want to play with you. I want to see you when you’re fifty… get in the damn cart.'”

Zalatoris finished second in this year’s PGA Championship and U.S. Open.
