The PGA Tour officially announced their 2013 schedule earlier this week. We know from the release, the Mayakoba Golf Classic will be moving from its February date (opposite the World Golf Championship Match Play event) to its own date in November as part of the beginning to the 2013-2014 PGA Tour FedEx Cup season.
What has always been viewed as a drawback by fans and sponsors of the Mayakoba Golf Classic is the lack of “big names” at the event. Any golfer in the Top 64 in the world who wanted to play at Mayakoba was forced to instead play the Match Play due to PGA Tour rules. That meant top players like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy could not even consider adding the MGC to their schedules.
But now, there is a chance the top players in the world will come to Mayakoba. How big of a chance, it remains to be seen. The MGC will now have its own date on the PGA Tour schedule, allowing any PGA Tour member the ability to play Mayakoba. However, with the increase in fall events in Asia & the Far East and the Race to Dubai ending in late November, the Mayakoba Golf Classic may continue to miss the most recognizable internatonal names in golf at its event. The good news is more well known North and South American golfers should make the trip in an attempt to capture 500 FedEx Cup points and the possible Masters berth.
