PGA DFS Coverage for the Mexico Open at Vidanta 

The PGA Tour heads back into regular scheduled programming after their week of pairs in New Orleans.  We head down to Mexico for the second time this season.  It is played on a Greg Norman designed course called Vidanta Vallarta which was ranked at the 24th-toughest course on the PGA Tour schedule last year.  Jon Rahm won the inaugural edition of this event last year and he returns to defend his title.  The world number one is proud of the exposure this tournament brings to the Latino community.


The Field: Mexico Open at Vidanta  

If you take Tony Finau out of the mix, Jon Rahm will be far and away the best player in the field.  I mean Wyndham Clark is having a terrific season but he should not be mentioned in the same sentence with him.  Alongside Finau, Rahm, and Clark, we will see players like Gary Woodland, Maverick McNealy, Alex Noren, Aaron Rai, Emiliano Grillo, and Byeong Hun An teeing it up this weekend.  We will also see 17 Latin American players participating led by young star Nico Echavarria.  He won in Puerto Rico earlier this season.  This tournament is a great opportunity for these young players to get national exposure on the PGA Tour.    

The Course: Vidanta Vallarta

Vidanta Vallarta is a Par 71 and sits just under 7,500 yards.  When you look at the profile of this course, it is very similar to another course in Mexico called Club de Golf Chapultepec which hosted the World Golf Championships from 2017-2020.  Both courses are Par 71, long, and have paspalum grass.  Distance will be at a premium.  Other courses on the PGA Tour schedule that feature that type of grass are El Camaleon (Mayakoba), Coco Beach (Puerto Rico), and Corales Golf Club.  The other thing that all these courses have in common are being played along coastlines with wind being the main defense along with Greg Norman signature nasty strategically placed bunkers.  While this course is no push over, these pros should have no problems going low. 

The Weather: Vallarta, Mexico

There will be no surprises this weekend in Vallarta.  We will see typical tropical conditions with no rain in the forecast and temperatures in the low 80s throughout the week.  You will see winds in the low teens but that’s nothing that these professionals haven’t played throughout before.  It will be nice to have a weekend without weather disrupting the golf.
