Graeme McDowell (2010 U.S. Open) is the 2015 OHL Golf Classic champion, beating a field of leading PGA players in a rain-interrupted tournament that carried over until Monday, November 16. He came through in a sudden death playoff to take the title, Russell Knox was the runner up and Jason Bohn came in third.
Several former U.S. Open and British Open champions competed in the 2015 OHL Golf Classic at MayaKoba, the Riviera Maya’s prestigious tournament and Mexico’s only PGA event. The field of competitors also included Angel Cabrera (U.S. Open, Masters Tournament), Justin Leonard (British Open), Steward Cink (British Open), Lucas Glover (U.S. Open) and Geoff Ogilvy (U.S. Open).
Seven of the eight champions of the tournament in previous years also competed: Fred Funk (2007), Mark Wilson (2009), Cameron Beckman (2010), Johnson Wagner (2011), John Huh (2012), Harris English (2013) and Charlie Hoffman (2014).
With a prize purse of US6.2 million, the OHL Classic at Mayakoba is Latin America’s most lucrative tournament. With each year that passes, more players are committing to play the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleon course.
