Today the OHL Classic at Mayakoba remains Mexico’s only PGA TOUR event and it is regarded as one of the finest on the PGA TOUR by players, their families, sponsors and the TOUR itself. Previously played opposite to the World Golf Championship-Accenture Match Play, in 2013 the tournament moves to a new fall date in the expanded FedEx Cup schedule. To be held annually in November, the tournament features 132 professional golfers participating in four rounds of stroke play competition at the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón Golf Club at Mayakoba in the Riviera Maya-Cancún regions of Mexico. And with a purse of USD6 million, the OHL Classic at Mayakoba boasts the largest amount of prize money of any golf tournament in Latin America. Rookie John Huh claimed the title in 2012, and is currently the defending champion. Other past champions include: Fred Funk (2007), Brian Gay (2008), Mark Wilson (2009), Cameron Beckman (2010) and Johnson Wagner (2011).
