It’s the tenth anniversary of the OHL Golf Classic at Mayakoba in the Riviera Maya November 10-13 and the field of competitors is filling up fast with PGA champions. Fresh from their Ryder Cup victory over Europe, Jim Furyk and Davis Love III have announced their appearance and the list of star players also includes Luke Donald, Hunter Mahan, Ian Poulter, defending OHL Golf Classic champion Graeme McDowell, World Golf Hall of Fame member Ernie Els, Webb Simpson, Bubba Watson and PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Emiliano Gallo.
As Mexico’s first PGA tournament, the OHL Golf Classic has grown in popularity with the Mexican golf community and three of the country’s top players: Rodolfo Cazaubon, Roberto Diaz and Carlos Ortiz will all be competing for the third time.
In addition to McDowell, several past champions are returning this year: Charley Hoffmann, Harris English, John Huh, Johnson Wagner, Mark Wagner and Brian Gay.
With a prize purse of US$7,000,010, the OHL Classic at Mayakoba is Latin America’s most lucrative tournament. With each year that passes, more top players are committing to play the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleon course.
