Will Zalatoris is mostly known for being one of the best ball-strikers on the planet. But he also happens to be a dead ringer for Owen Wilson. And he's well aware of the latter.

Unfortunately, Zalatoris isn't in the field this week, but he saw the tour's Instagram post and had the perfect, one-word reaction in the comments section. Here's the post:

And in case you can't see Will's comment, here's a screenshot with it:
