After a well-deserved week off in the PGA Tour, the action resumes this weekend with an interesting PGA Tour event. The Mayakoba Golf Classic will take place from the El Camaleon Golf Club in Mexico and as usual, we have you covered with a full preview and betting tips for the event below.
Pretty solid field has been assembled in Mexico this week, likely due to the fact that this will be the last tournament of the year before the Christmas break in the PGA Tour. The No.3 ranked player in the world, Justin Thomas, will headline the field and start as favourite after a decent showing at the Masters a few weeks ago. Brooks Koepka is the other big name in the field, and he’ll be desperate to capitalise on some form that he also found in the Masters.
Other big names in the field this week include Harris English, Abraham Ancer, Daniel Berger, Tony Finau, Viktor Hovland and Rickie Fowler. Past winners of the Mayakoba Golf Classic include Brendon Todd, Matt Kuchar, Patton Kizzire, Pat Perez, Charley Hoffman and Harris English.
El Camaleon Golf Club plays as a Par 71 at just over 6,900 yards and while it isn’t an incredibly long course off the tee, its coastal location brings high winds into play which makes it play a lot harder off the tee than its distance suggests. All in all, it’s still a relatively easy course for PGA Tour professionals, with the winning score generally coming in the high teens-low twenties under par.
Thomas is back at Mayakoba after a five year hiatus this season and comes into the tournament as the front-runner. He has been one of the most consistent golfers in the world over the past few months and if not for Dustin Johnson’s unbelievable run of form, there’s no doubt JT would have at least a few trophies to his name. Thomas finished fourth at the Masters a few weeks ago and in four events this season, has racked up finishes of T8, T12, T2 and T4.
English didn’t play in the Masters but has been solid this season despite that. He lined up in the U.S. Open at Winged Foot, where he finished 4th overall and since then, has racked up a 10th place at the CJ Cup, a T28 at the ZOZO Championship and a T6 in his last tournament, the RSM Classic. English is proven at the El Camaleon Golf Club, winning back in 2013 and finishing T5 in his last trip there last year.
Perez has made a career out of grinding out results in these smaller tournaments to retain his PGA Tour card year after year. The Mayakoba Classic seems to be an event where he rarely misses out. The enigmatic star won his first PGA Tour in seven years when he took out the Mayakoba back in 2016 and since then, he has finished T34, T6 and T8 in the three following events. Definitely a smokey chance this weekend but we like his value on a course he knows well.
