In just his second start at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba (T58/2015), Patton Kizzire held off a dramatic challenge from Rickie Fowler, who birdied two of the last three holes, to post his first victory on the PGA TOUR. Kizzire held at least a share of the lead after each round and led by four over Fowler when he hit his tee shot into the hazard on the par-5 13th hole and managed to save par, holing a critical 8-footer. Fowler birdied No. 13 to close the gap to three. Both players parred the final hole, allowing Kizzire the one-stroke win. Kizzire’s 4-under 67 was one of four bogey-free final rounds on Sunday.
Kizzire’s first PGA TOUR victory came in his 63rd start at the age of 31 years, 8 months, 9 days. He becomes fully exempt through the 2019-20 PGA TOUR season and earns 500 FedExCup points, a spot in the field at the 2018 Sentry Tournament of Champions, THE PLAYERS Championship, Masters Tournament, PGA Championship and select Invitational PGA TOUR events. He also earns 500 points towards making the 2019 U.S. Presidents Cup team.
Despite a bogey at his final hole (No. 9), Abraham Ancer, one of five Mexican players in the field this week, fired a final-round 3-under 68 to finish T9, the leading player from Mexico. Ancer joined Oscar Fraustro and Carlos Ortiz, sharing the best result of any Mexican players in the history of this event. The pair finished T9 in 2014. Here’s a look at this week’s performances of other players from Mexico; Oscar Fraustro (T25), Roberto Diaz (T25), Carlos Ortiz (T45), and Jose de Jesus Rodriguez (MC).
