MAYAKOBA GOLF CLASSIC

This event became the very first PGA Tour event that took place outside the United States. It started in 2007 and is hosted at the resort complex in the beautiful Riviera Maya, the Mayakoba Golf Classic. It will feature 132 professional golfers participating in four rounds of stroke play competition, from November 5 – 11, 2018, at the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón Golf Club in Mexico’s Riviera Maya with a purse of $7,200,000.

The weather for this event is expected to be warm with calm to no winds and plenty of sun. There should be no concerns along that line.

There are not very many of the top golfers involved in this one as many have already begun their winter break.

Top 50 players in 2018 Mayakoba Golf Classic field:
9 . Rickie Fowler
13 . Jordan Spieth
15 . Tony Finau
31 . Gary Woodland
33 . Kevin Kisner
36 . Billy Horschel
38 . Matt Kuchar
45 . Charley Hoffman
49 . Emiliano Grillo

 

Prediction: It is difficult to bet against Rickie Fowler in this one but I like a bit more juice to my bet. Also, Jordan Spieth is in this and has the due factor with him as this season has been a bit light for Spieth. I will make a bet in his name but my longshot at 66/1 odds is Charley Hoffman. He is a former winner at this course and always plays well here.
