2019 Mayakoba Golf Classic - Spectator Information

By Ryan Watson

The 12th edition of the Mayakoba Golf Classic occurs this weekend, November 14-17, at Mexico’s El Camaleón Golf Course located just south of the resort town of Cancún. A strong field is expected to compete this week including defending champion Matt Kuchar, as well as Jason Day, Tony Finau and Greenbrier Classic winner Joaquin Niemann. Local hopes will rest with Abraham Ancer, the University of Oklahoma product who is still looking for his first PGA Tour win. 

 

Tournament History

The tournament began in 2007 and marked the return of the PGA Tour to Mexico for the first time in the 21st century. The Mayakoba Golf Classic was originally an alternate event to the WGC Match Play, and as such did not include a Masters invitation to the winner and was worth only half the FedEx Cup points of a typical event. The tournament made the move to full event in 2014. The tournament has seen several notable former champions, including major winner Graeme McDowell, Pat Perez, and Fred Funk. 2018 champion Matt Kuchar has claimed the lowest score at -22 when he defeated New Zealander Danny Lee by 1 stroke. Curiously, Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell is the only non-American to win the event.
