Mayakoba Golf Classic February 23-26

 

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, México — Tournament officials announced today that past major champions David Duval, Lucas Glover and Mike Weir will be coming to compete in the Mayakoba Golf Classic February 23-26 at the Mayakoba Resort on the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón Golf Club.

Jhonattan Vegas, the first Venezuelan to win on the PGA TOUR and a 2011 Rookie of the Year candidate, will attend this year’s tournament.

So far, the tournament has received commitments from seven major championship winners—Duval, Glover, Tom Lehman, Greg Norman, Jose Maria Olazabal, Nick Price, John Cook and Mike Weir. Prior to this year, the tournament has attracted a total of 20 major championship winners in the first five years.

“The field is really shaping up to be one of the most diverse we have seen in our first six years,” said Tournament Director Larson Segerdahl. “So far, we have a great mix of major championship winners, young players, international players and active players on the Champions Tour. This should certainly create a great competition and an exciting Sunday finish.”

Weir, the 2003 Masters champion and eight-time winner on TOUR, will be making his first appearance at the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

“I’m excited about the chance to play the Mayakoba Golf Classic and in front of the fans in Mexico,” said Weir. “I have some fond memories of playing in Mexico representing Canada in the World Cup.  I’m looking forward to a great week in the Riviera Maya.”

It will also mark the first time Glover has played. Glover won the 2009 U.S. Open and last year won the Wells Fargo Championship for his third career victory.

Duval has accumulated 13 career titles, including the 2001 British Open. In 1999 he won four times and was ranked No.1 in the world. This will be Duval’s second start in the Mayakoba Golf Classic. In 2010, he failed to make the 36-hole cut.

Vegas will be making his second consecutive appearance. Last year, he finished tied for 19th.  The Mayakoba Golf Classic has traditionally hosted a strong international field. In the tournament’s first five years an average of 16 different countries have been represented each year. With a purse of $3.7 million USD, Mexico’s only PGA TOUR event boasts the largest amount of prize money of any golf tournament in Latin America.

Cancun Golfing North, Central, and South

Hola Cheryl

One week in Paradise means 2 weeks catching up with paperwork upon the return to reality.  Nevertheless, it was worth it.  Your advice and assistance really made my golf experience an absolute pleasure.  The Iberostar Cancun and Playa Mujeres were both great choices.  The courses were fair, well maintained, and the service was top-notch.  Of course, the jewel was Mayakoba El Camaleon.  That course stands apart from the rest.  I was paired with a wonderful partner, and the round was far too short.  If the sun would have cooperated, I would gladly have played another 18.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I travel quite a bit, and wherever I go, I play golf.  I have not used a scheduler for many years, but elected to do so in Cancun because of my unfamiliarity with the location, language, and customs.  I am so glad that I departed from routine.  You were extremely helpful, and your choices were spot on.  It was particularly impressive that I received the benefit of your services without any additional cost, and for some courses, I found that the rates charged were LESS than I could have gotten on my own.  Tee times were exactly when I wanted them, and I had no difficulty using my vouchers at any of the courses.  Even last minute scheduling changes were easily accommodated.  I guess that I will need to rethink my practice of directly scheduling vacation rounds of golf….

Thanks again.  I am sure that we will be back in the area sooner than later, and I will be sure to contact you for additional assistance at www.teedoffteetimes.com

Mike Weir Is Back AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

“This week, I’m finally back to playing, teeing it up at the AT&T Pebble Beach Classic. I can tell you that after being on the shelf for so long, it feels good to be out here and getting back to playing some golf. I know the surgery and all the rehab was worth it but it’s been quite a grind. The first three months were really hard, not doing anything just rehabbing and wondering how it was going to feel. It was pretty darn painful the first month then it got a lot better.
That was the hard part, not being able to do anything and watching my arm shrink and then trying to build it back up.  Even when I first got back to swinging the club the toughest part was just breaking through that soreness, mentally trusting it, trusting that it’s healed and then going ahead and going after it.
This tournament has always been one of my favourites on Tour and I’m extremely grateful for the organizers to have given me an exemption. I hope I can repay them with some good golf. I’ve admired the great organization here.”

Weir, the 2003 Masters champion and eight-time winner on TOUR, will be making his first appearance at the Mayakoba Golf Classic.  “I’m excited about the chance to play the Mayakoba Golf Classic and in front of the fans in Mexico,” said Weir. “I have some fond memories of playing in Mexico representing Canada in the World Cup.  I’m looking forward to a great week in the Riviera Maya.”

Golf Adventures of One Man in Cancun and Playa del Carmen

I embarked on my five day golf week in the Mayan riviera on January 11th
2012. I found Cheryl’s website while researching courses in the Mayan. I
contacted her right away to get prices, ideas, as our resort could not knowledgable
with the courses I wanted to golf. She was a huge help with letting me know which
courses I should play and which I shouldn’t.  Her company provided tee times
with shuttles to and from the courses at a great rate. I started off first with
the Iberostar Golf Course, I shot a 87.   
This is really nice course, well kept, and a lot of fun to play. They have a great little taco stand just inside the resort
which is included in your round! Next we played Playacar I was pretty disappointed with this one. The course was not in good condition and I didn’t find it to be worth the money I spent. I shot a 92 on this one.The next day we
went off to the Grand Coral this course is fairly new and in great condition. I shot a 78 on this one. Best day of golf of the week. There were some challengingholes and great views I highly recommend this course. El Camaleon at Mayakoba was an unreal course.  This is the only PGA Tour Course in Mexico and is in immaculate condition,
beautiful greens. There are two ocean hole on this course that is breathtaking. It
is a challenging course but a must if your a big golfer definitely worth the
money. I shot an 89. I finished my 5 days with the Riviera Cancun Golf Course.
Cheryl planned this out perfectly for us so I could squeeze in one more game before
our flight. Was a really nice course that is carved around a mangrove.  I shot
an 80 on this course. 
I spent a total of 11 days down in the Mayan Riviera and
Cheryl was very helpful in making all my golf arrangements/tee times around my
schedule of other events while I was on my trip. She even managed to get my
girlfriend to go for free on some of the courses as she was not playing and they
wanted to charge a riders fee. I would not have been able to get all 5 courses
done if I didn’t have Cheryl planning and booking this all for me. I highly
recommend if you in her area to book your golf through her!
Thanks,
Brian
Thank you Brian it was a fantastic week working with you.  Sincerely Cheryl Cogswell
