The PGA Tour travels to Playa del Carmen, Mexico this week for the World Wide Technologies Championship at Mayakoba. This tournament usually does not draw a strong field but some of the top golfers will be teeing it up this week. Collin Morikawa, Scottie Scheffler, Tony Finau, Victor Hovland, Billy Horschel and Justin Rose are some of the golfers entered into this week’s tournament.
The tournament will be played at El Camaleon Golf Course. It is known as one of the finest courses on the PGA Tour. It is 7,039 yards in length and plays as a par 71. The course is not very long for the PGA professionals but the golfers will not be able to overpower the course this week. Most of the golfers who have won this tournament are extremely accurate, good with approach shots and can putt lights out (Victor Hovland, Brendon Todd, Matt Kuchar, Pat Perez and Graeme McDowell).
The weather is always a factor in this event so stacking tee times in DFS is a good play. Be sure to check the forecast for Playa del Carmen, Mexico before your set your lineups Wednesday night.

TOP 30 GOLFER RANKINGS
There will be 132 golfers in the field this week with the top 65 and ties will make the cut (roughly 50% of the field). We will need 6/6 golfers to make the cut in order to win out Tournament Contests but we may be able to win our Cash Contests with only 5/6 if some of the big name golfers duff it up this week. The field was pretty strong in this tournament last year and the big name golfers were all highly owned. Some of these high-owned golfers missed the cut and we were able to win our Cash Contests with only 5/6 golfers playing the weekend. That will likely happen again this week.
My strategy will be to build my lineups around golfers who have a good course history and are in decent form. This course gets tricky with the weather so golfers who know it well should play well in Mexico.
