The 11th edition of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba gets started November 9 - 12, 2017 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The tournament debuted in 2007 as Mexico’s first ever PGA Tour sanctioned event and has been on the PGA Tour schedule ever since.
After an action-packed week from Shanghai at the WGC-HSBC Champions, the PGA Tour returns to North America with another installment of the annual trip to the El Camaleon Golf Club in Mexico.
The OHL Classic was previously known as the "Mayakoba Golf Classic", will envite any PGA TOUR player, regardless of world ranking, the opportunity to compete in Mexico’s Only PGA TOUR Event should he meet qualifying criteria and wish to play.
Previously the tournament had been held in February opposite the World Golf Championships—Accenture Match Play Championship, prohibiting the top 64 players in the world from enjoying the chance to compete at Mayakoba.
With this new date, the tournament will continue to be a part of the season-long FedExCup competition and will now distribute a full allocation of FedExCup points. In addition, an increase in the total purse to $7.1 million USD guaranteeing the winner will earn a check of more than $1 million USD and the champion will also earn 500 FedExCup points.
Pat Perez won last year’s event, closing with a 4-under par 67 and beating third round leader Gary Woodland by two strokes. Perez finished at 21-under par to secure his second career win on the PGA Tour.

The course bends through three distinct landscapes - tropical jungle, dense mangroves, and oceanfront stretches of sand with holes bisected by massive limestone canals. Mayakoba sits just south of Cancun on Mexico’s prized Caribbean coast, the Riviera Maya. A mere 40-minute drive from the towering hotels of Cancun visitors will discover a completely different experience.
Nestled in a lush natural paradise, lies Mayakoba, a truly unique resort destination. Mayakoba is comprised of five luxury hotels, each featuring a range of culinary and spa experiences. An 18 hole Greg Norman championship golf course, El Camaleón, managed by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, offers players an ever-changing terrain that moves gracefully from mangroves to the sea.
At less than 7,000 yards, El Camaleon offers virtually no advantage to big-hitters. Instead the name of the game here is accuracy from tee to green, with the most important stats in previous renewals being greens in regulation, scrambling and putting average.
Pat Perez won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in his third start since returning from shoulder surgery.
Perez closed with a four-under-par 67 for a two-stroke victory over third-round leader Gary Woodland on the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleon course. Perez finished at 21-under 263.
Perez, who also won the 2009 Bob Hope Classic, shot a 62 on Saturday to pull within a stroke of Woodland. The 40-year-old former Arizona State player birdied five of the first eight holes and had a bogey on the par-four 12th.
Woodland birdied the final two holes for a 70. Russell Knox was third at 18 under after a 66. Chez Reavie (67), Kevin Streelman (65) and Scott Piercy (70) were at 17 under.
