Vedanta Vallarta is hosting the first Mexico Open ever this week on the PGA TOUR, where a couple of golfers are looking to regain shape with summer just around the corner.
Overall, world No. 2 is Jon Rahm, who has not won since last year’s US Open. With another major (PGA Championship) fast approaching, this could give the Spaniard a great opportunity to start finding his elite form against.
To say that Rahm has fought in 2022 can be a little harsh. He has not missed a sweet nine starts this year and he has finished in the top 20 six times. Rahm’s last start was at the Masters, where he finished T27 and was never in contention.
Also in the field is Ryder Cup winner Tony Finau, who has struggled (compared to their high standards) so far in 2022. Finau was in the top 20 on the official World Golf Rankings (OWGR) at the end of 2021, but he is now 25.
Many eyes will be on the Mexican couple Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz this week. Ancer finally got its first PGA TOUR victory in August last year at FedEx St. Jude while Ortiz won the 2020 Houston Open.
Ortiz in particular needs to find its form. He finished 2021 as the 56th-ranked player in the OWGR, but is in 87th place this week. Ortiz has missed its last four cuts – Arnold Palmer Invitational, PLAYERS, Valspar and RBC Heritage.
One player who will consider himself “in shape” is probably Kevin Na, who finished T14 at the Masters and T26 next week at RBC Heritage. Prior to that, he advanced to the Round of 16 at the WGC-Dell Match Play in late March.
Clearly, there is no historical data to be included in the build-up to the Mexico Open. However, we know a few things.
Vedanta Vallarta plays 7,456 yards as a par-71, meaning it is longer than average compared to other courses regularly seen on the PGA TOUR.
One thing that players should be able to expect this week is a lot of fairway to land in. Unlike recent stops throughout Florida, it will not be that difficult for players to find the short grass from the tee.
