PGA taking its tour south of the border

first_img“All the players I’ve been talking to, they’re excited, they’re very happy,” Toledo said. “It’s not Pebble Beach, but it’s just wonderful. It’s the best golf course that I’ve ever played in Mexico.” PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico – The PGA Tour is making its debut in Mexico this week with the Mayakoba Golf Classic in an area known as the Riviera Maya. Fittingly enough, the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleon golf course playing host to the event was built for tourists. For all its natural beauty, the course might not challenge the pros too much, unless there’s a stiff enough wind off the Caribbean Sea. Still, no matter how low the scores go, having them posted aqui – here – is what matters most to Mexicans. “The whole country is excited,” said Toledo, a native of Mexicali and among the nation’s more successful golfers. “All the Mexican people see the best players on TV. Now they’re seeing them for real, in their own country. This is the biggest thing that can happen for golf in Mexico. I’m really, really surprised we haven’t had it before.” The world’s top 64 players are at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona. Some others stayed away out of concerns about the course, the country and other unknowns that come with any first-time event. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
