This week we have a new tour stop; The Mexico Open at Vidanta.  This has been the country's national championship dating back to 1944 but this will be the first time it's been played as part of the PGA Tour schedule.  It is also the first time a PGA event has taken place at Vidanta Vallarta - a Greg Norman Signature layout. By all accounts, this resort course is normally maintained to be quite forgiving (don't want to upset the guests) with wide open landing areas off the tee's. The design is slanted towards threading second shots over and around a generous number of bunkers and water hazards. It sounds like they have grown the ruff areas a bit but, short of having high winds, many suspect a wining score in the low 20's.

The field is a wee bit lacking in strength with many from the Zurich Classic opting not to make the trip.  Man, I would think these players wife's and kids would be hounding them to go to a resort venue 🙂. Jon Rahm is the top ranked player and favorite to win.  Berger, Ancer, and Finau are the only others in the top 25 ranked players.  Alvaro Ortiz won this event in 2021 and will be there to defend the title.

Don't forget to make your pick for this weeks winner https://runmypools.com/JRMPNWWF.  Good luck!

Ortiz comes from behind, wins Mexican Open by three shots

Picking Ancer this week, but I would like to see Patrick Reed do well.

This is a great tournament for another first time winner to get a boost tot he next level.  Could be Aaron Rai.

I feel bad for the tournament - tough date for your first time as an official PGA tour event.  Glad they got a few plum names to help out.  I'm thinking first time winner, too.  Hoping Mr. Lahairi breaks through - why not? 🙂

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

I just picked Rahm for the win... he's toast 🤣.

Well, now we have a conundrum.  I didn't pick Rahm so he will probably win.  🤣

Apparently the Resort as a whole is very nice according to Rahm interview after first round. He suggested that he will be back.

I'll bet many that opted not to go this year will next year... their wives will demand it 😆.  The facility really does look nice.  I believe there are a number of courses around the area and would make a fun destination.

I lost my coverage on Golf Channel but it looks like Rham is going to get it done.

Somehow Rahm puked it out.  Tee shot was way left on a hillside!  Layed up, 3rd on the green, 2putt.  Time to hug wife & son.
