For the second week in a row the Tour produces a winner who has been on the planet for more than 39 years as 40-year old Pat Perez won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
Final Thoughts from OHL
Only two players in their 20’s from 10 tries have lifted the trophy on Playa del Carmen, just as many as those 40 and above. There’s something to be said for experience here as quality players who have been around the block know how to keep their ball out of trouble.
When a tournament record is set and the course record (relative to par) is matched, the suggestion that the track is easy isn’t misleading. Let it also be known the weather was essentially perfect as well. The only defense this course presents would be blistering wind and at the end of hurricane season, that’s not always the case.
Russell Knox (T-3): Three consecutive top 10’s worldwide. Glad I went with Grillo in OAD instead!
Chris Kirk (T-7): Four starts this fall and three top 10’s just not the week I started him in OAD. Bitter? NOT ME!
Luke List (T-7): Nothing outside of T-26 in four starts and includes a pair of top 10’s.
Emiliano Grillo (T-10): Since the U.S. Open he’s finished outside of the top 35 exactly ONCE anywhere in the world.
Jhonattan Vegas (T-10): Racked up 14 of his last 15 since back-to-back MC last spring.
Keegan Bradley (T-15): I agree these aren’t the toughest of tracks but it’s now 11 cuts made in a row and the last four are all T-22 or better.
Caught My Eye
Chez Reavie (T-4): Hot pot with four cuts made in a row with 61 in Las Vegas and 63 in Mexico.
Stewart Cink (T-15): Second week in a row.
Webb Simpson (T-24): Opened 65-65 and always plays Sea Island well.
Brian Gay (T-28): More interested in his 64 on Sunday than his finishing position.
Seamus Power (T-28): Sat T=4 after 54 holes on 15-under before a Sunday slide.
