2020 PGA Tour: Mayakoba Classic Betting Tips

November 13th 2019, 12:16pm, By: andyrosos

The 2020 PGA Tour returns from a one week break this weekend, which we felt like we deserved after an absolute stellar start to the season. We picked up our second win of the year at the WGC-HSBC Champions a couple of weeks ago, picking Rory McIlroy to get the job done at odds of $7.00.

We have now previewed seven tournaments throughout the opening stretch of the 2020 season. We have picked the outright winner in two of the tournaments and our top has doubled our money in the placing markets in six out of the seven tournaments.

The Tour rolls on this week as we head to Mexico for the annual Mayakoba Classic to be played at the El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa del Carmon.

Mayakoba Classic Betting Tips

Matt Kuchar claimed his first trophy since the 2014 PGA Tour season when he won at the the El Camaleon Golf Club last year, and he will be back to defend his title this season amongst what will be a fairly strong field.

The Field

Selections for the upcoming Presidents Cup will take centre stage this week, as they get their last few preparation rounds in before the tournament kicks off in Melbourne in early December. Along with the defending champion Kuchar, five other Presidents Cup selections will headline the field in the Unites States’ Tony Finau and internationals Jason Day, Joaquin Niemann, Adam Hadwin, and hometown hero Abraham Ancer.

PGA rookie Vickor Hovland starts as favourite for a tournament for the first time in his career at just $15 to win the Mayakoba, head of Day, Kuchar, Finay and American Billy Horschel.

The Course

The El Camaleon Golf Club in Mexico was designed by Australian Greg Norman and opened for play in 2005. It sits at just over 6,900 yards as a Par 71 and has varied landscapes consisting of tropical jungles, forests and oceanfront. The greens aren’t particularly difficult to handle with the putter, finding them in regulation is the real test for golfers at the Mayakoba.

Being on the coast, the El Camaleon Golf Club usually offers high winds and with trees lining the majority of the wholes, players will need to be dialled in both off the tee and on approach this week. Matt Kuchar was dominant from tee-to-green in his win last year and it’s a stat we’ll be targeting heavily again this season.


If you’re targeting strong tee-to-green players this weekend, how can you look past the American Tony Finau. The Presidents Cup selection currently leads the entire PGA Tour in shots gained from tee-to-green with a ridiculous 3.4 shots gained per round, which is a full shot more than his nearest competitor.

Finau was strong in the Mayakoba Classic last year as well, finishing -14 under par after rounds of 69, 65, 67 and 69 to finish T16.
