The PGA Tour officially announced their 2013 schedule earlier this week. Suprisingly, one of the most popular events with competitors and their families, the Mayakoba Golf Classic, was not on the 2013 schedule. Does this mean that El Camaleon no longer hosts the Only PGA Tour Event in Mexico? Fortunately for all of us golf fans, it is just a quirk in the new schedule.
Over the next few days, Tee’d Off Tee Times will look at the new 2013 schedule and give you a sneak peek at the totally revised 2013-2014 FedEx Cup schedule (not to be confused with the abbreviated 2013 schedule) and we’ll tell you when the next Mayakoba Golf Classic will be held.
After the 2013 Season, which ends in with the Tour Championship Sept 22nd, the 2013-2014 PGA TOUR Season will officially begin three weeks later with the first Fall Tournament. While the exact dates have not been set (at least publically), the Mayakoba Golf Classic will become part of the start to the new season, somewhere in mid-November 2013.
The PGA Tour also announced that the Fall Tournaments will award full FedExCup points. This means 500 points to the winner of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, a two-year exemption and a possible Masters invite.
In our next story, we will look at who may be playing in the next Mayakoba Golf Classic. Is there a chance the biggest names in golf, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy or Phil Mickelson, may play? We’ll let you know.
