There are two PGA Tour events the week of March 23-26, 2017, one in Mexico and the other at the Puerto Rico Open, which is a secondary tournament but still gives everyone a great opportunity to kickstart their career.
The Puerto Rico Open was first played in 2008 and is the only PGA Tour event ever played in Puerto Rico. Trump International Golf Club, formerly known as Coco Beach Country Club, will host the event for the tenth straight year. The Tom Kite design is a long track, measuring close to 7,600 yards.
Secondary tournaments are often times overlooked by the public but the savvy gamer knows there’s great value at the 2017 Puerto Rico Open.
With the PGA TOUR’s top names playing at the WGC - Dell Technologies Match Play, the rookies and rest of the golfing world are playing at the Puerto Rico Open. This is the 17th time the PGA Tour has visited Puerto Rico and the tournament has been a prime spot for someone to pick up his first victory. Last year Tony Finau became the fourth straight champion to pick up his first victory here, and sixth of nine overall. Unfortunately, Finau is not on hand this week to defend. Continue...
The tournament it self provides some great golf betting opportunities as an alternative to the WGC-CA Championship.
And the lack of truly top PGA golf odds on all types of players, witch means that there are likely to be some long-odds in the ante-post betting that could be in and around the top of the leaderboard, which could be well worth placing a bet on once you've done your research.

The Puerto Rico Open presented by Banco Popular is held at the Trump International Golf Club located at Rio Grande, Puerto Rico and quickly follows the Honda Classic in the PGA Tour calendar.
It was played for the very first time in March of 2008, this was also the first PGA Tour event ever to be held in Puerto Rico, and is dedicated to Juan "Chi Chi" Rodriguez, the country's most notable golfer.
The tournament is played at the Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, which was designed by Tom Kite and previously known as the Coco Beach Golf & Country Club.
American DA Points has held off the challenge of double US Open winner Retief Goosen to claim his first US PGA Tour title since 2013 with victory in the Puerto Rico Open.
Points carded nine birdies in a final round six-under 66 at Coco Beach to finish 20 under and two ahead of South African Goosen and the American pair of Bryson DeChambeau and Bill Lunde.
Sam Saunders, the grandson of the late Arnold Palmer, was a shot further back in a tie for fifth with Peter Uihlein and Whee Kim, with England's Andrew Johnston part of a seven-way tie for 10th on 15 under.
Points made a stunning start to the final round with five straight birdies, only to bogey the sixth and eighth to fall a shot behind overnight leader Chris Stroud, who had birdied the second, fourth and sixth.
Another bogey on the 10th looked to have taken Points out of contention as Goosen surged through the field on his way to a flawless closing 64 to set the clubhouse target on 18 under.
However, the 40-year-old Points rallied brilliantly on the back nine with birdies on the 13th, 14th, 16th and 18th to claim a third PGA Tour victory.
