Results & Earnings
Congratulations to Graeme McDowell, our 2015 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba Champion!
McDowell won his first PGA TOUR event in over two years by defeating Russell Knox and Jason Bohn in a playoff at El Camaleón Golf Club at Mayakoba.
Fortunate to even get into a playoff Monday, McDowell ended it quickly with a 5-iron that grazed the edge of the cup on the 18th hole and settled 3 feet away for a birdie to win.
"I hit as good of a 5-iron as I could hit," McDowell said.
McDowell closed with a 5-under 66 to finish at 18-under 266, and he had to make an 8-foot par putt on the final hole for that. It still looked as if it would only be good enough for second place when Russell Knox had a one-shot lead going to the 18th hole.
Knox pulled his tee shot into a bunker, came up just short of the green and his chip-and-run came up was 12 feet short. He missed the par putt and had a 66, to join McDowell and Jason Bohn in a playoff. Bohn made tough par putts on four of his last five holes for a 68.
"It's the game of golf, and it's very difficult," McDowell said. "I've been dreaming of this day and I said that I was going to appreciate it when it came. So I'm going to appreciate this one, because this year has been a grind."
At a rain-soaked World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, Brendon Todd tapped into some bottled-up magic to win for the second consecutive week on the PGA TOUR schedule and earn his third career victory.
Matt Kuchar sets a 54 and 72 hole tournament record with his two first rounds of 64 and keeping and impressive persistence through the last two rounds with 65 and 69 strokes. This made him the victory with a final score of 22 under par.
In just his second start at the World Wide Technology Championship 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.
Congratulations to Pat Perez, our 2016 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba Champion! Perez made five birdies and one bogey en route to a 21-under-par 263, good for a two-stroke victory over 54-hole leader Gary Woodland.
Congratulations to Graeme McDowell, our 2015 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba Champion! McDowell won his first PGA Tour event in over two years by defeating Russell Knox and Jason Bohn in a playoff at El Camaleón Golf Club at Mayakoba.
Facing a three-shot deficit, Charley Hoffman rallied in the final round up until the last hole to claim the championship at the 2014 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba. He finished with a 5-under-par 66 in the final round of competition to close at a tournament total of 17-under-par 267.
John Huh parred the eighth hole of a playoff to beat Australia's Robert Allenby and win the 2012 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba. The 21-year-old Huh parred all eight holes in the playoff that matched the second-longest in PGA TOUR history.
Johnson Wagner won the 2011 Mayakoba Golf Classic for his second PGA TOUR title, beating Spencer Levin with a par on the first playoff hole. Wagner closed with a 4-under 67 to match Levin at 17-under-par 267 on the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón course.
Cameron Beckman claimed his third PGA TOUR title at the 2010 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, closing with a 4-under-par 67 in the final round for a two-stroke victory over Brian Stuard and third-round leader Joe Durant.
Mark Wilson took over the lead of the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba for good with two early birdies in the final round, yet had to fight through some wobbly play down the stretch to earn his second career PGA TOUR victory.
Brian Gay's 8-year-old daughter had it on good authority that her father would earn his first PGA TOUR victory at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. The defending champ's 12-year-old son told her so the night prior to the final round. Although Gay didn't know about the prediction, he did a nice job making it hold up, shooting a 1-under 69 in the final round to win the 2008 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba by two strokes at 16-under-par 264.
How do you say Funk in Spanish? That would be funkeon (campeon - champion) or funkador (ganador - winner). The above question is well worth asking as Fred Funk is the champion of the inaugural World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba. Funk claimed the title with a birdie on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff against Jose Coceres.
