Venue

The PGA Tour stops off in Mexico this week for the OHL Classic 2017 at Mayakoba. The 7,039-yard El Camaleon Golf Club at the Mayakoba resort in Playa del Carmen was designed by Greg Norman and has been hosting this tournament since 2007, although it has only offered full FedEx Cup points since it moved to its current winter slot in 2013. The par 71 course moves between three distinct landscapes and therefore presents players with a variety of challenges as it winds between tropical jungle, dense mangroves and oceanfront stretches. Pat Perez took the title last year, while other recent champions include Graeme McDowell, Charley Hoffman and Harris English, whose course record total of 21-under-par was matched by Perez.

Favourites

Rickie Fowler returns to action after a six-week break and the world number 10 is the market leader, at best odds of 10/1 with Bet365. Defending champion Perez, who is already a winner this season at the CIMB Classic, is at 14/1 with Bet365 and Coral, while Patrick Reid and Gary Woodland are both widely available at 22/1. Chesson Hadley’s remarkable run of form has seen him finish in the top four on five of his last six starts, including a Web.com Tour victory in Boise, and the world no. 79 is at 25/1 with Paddy Power – who along with Coral & Betfair are offering 7 places.

Tips

CHEZ REAVIE has been playing well for an extended period of time without getting the rewards his form has perhaps merited, but he’s a worthy each-way pick at 40/1 with Ladbrokes or Coral for this tournament. Reavie, who was fourth at Mayakoba last year, has finished in the top 25 on each of his last five starts and on eight of the last 10, while he hasn’t missed a cut since the Byron Nelson way back in May.

It would be an overstatement to describe JASON KOKRAK as a course specialist at Mayakoba, but his record in Mexico is pretty consistent – he’s finished 17th, 16th and 15th on his three visits to this course. His recent form is good too, including a top 10 at the Sanderson Farms Championship and two other top 20s, suggesting he has a decent platform on which to build this week. He’s 40/1 with both Paddy Power and Coral – with those 7 places.

LUKE LIST has been playing consistently well at the PGA Tour’s bread and butter events, with his only missed cut in his last 11 outings coming at the PGA Championship. He tied for fifth at the CJ Cup a few weeks ago, while he has placed in the top 20 on four of his last five starts. He was seventh at this event last year and can be backed at best odds of 40/1 with both Betfair and Paddy Power – again with those 7 places for each-way bets on this event.
