About the OHL Classic at Mayakoba

The OHL Classic at Mayakoba was the first PGA Tour event to be held in Mexico and has acted as a platform for the world to see just how good golf in Mexico is.

Before 2013 the tournament had somewhat of a low profile however after 2013 the OHL Classic rewarded an invitation to the Masters for the winner, FedEx Cup points and a purse of 60%, up to $6 million.

As the event takes place in November, many players are looking to get a head start in the FedEx rankings, adding extra importance to the weekend. In recent years, the winners have all gone on to have strong seasons such as Patton Kizzire and Pat Perez.
