On Thursday, April 27, the PGA Tour officially kicks off its annual Mexico Open at Vidanta Vallarta. The 144-player field includes several familiar faces, but it is one of the weakest fields in recent memory, with only two top 50 players: World No. 50 Alex Noren and defending champion and current World No. 1 Jon Rahm. Despite the lack of star power, betting sites are still issuing odds for the event, with Rahm being the clear favorite at +290. However, World No. 80 Gary Woodland is expected to finish in the top 10 this year, with odds of +3200 to win the event and +380 to make the top 10. According to data analyst Ron Klos, Vidanta Vallarta is one of the longest courses on the PGA Tour and has the longest combined par 4s and par 5s. This will be a challenge for the players, but Woodland stands ninth in driving distance this season and has already finished at T-4 in the Masters and T-31 at the RBC Heritage. Woodland finished at T-24 in last year's Mexico Open, and with his impressive season so far, he is expected to do even better this year. The prize money for the Mexico Open is $7.7 million, and there are some known faces among the field. Along with Rahm and Woodland, other players include Alex Noren, Francesco Molinari, and Maverick McNealy. While the Mexico Open may not have as much star power as some of the other tournaments on the PGA Tour, it is still an exciting event for golf fans. The course presents a challenging test for players, and the prize money is nothing to sneeze at. It remains to be seen who will come out on top at this year's Mexico Open, but one thing is for sure: the event is sure to provide plenty of excitement for golf fans worldwide.
