Vidanta Vallarta Will Play Host to the 2022 PGA Mexico Open
The Mexico Open will appear on the PGA schedule for the first time as an official FedExCup event with 500 FedExCup points going to the winner for the season long points race on the PGA Tour.
The top golf tournament in Mexico is coming to Vallarta in late April. The 2022 edition of the Mexico Open is arguably the most important golf tournament to be played in Mexico, as it is an official FedExCup event with 500 Fed ExCup Points going to the winner. The FedExCup is the season-long points race in the PGA, culminating with a series of events at the end of the season. The winner of the FedExCup wins $18 million.
The winner of the 2022 Mexico open will receive 500 FedExCup points and a large share of the $7.3 Million prize purse reserved for the tournament. The #2 ranked player in the world, Jon Rahm, has already committed to playing in the event. The event will most likely feature the majority of the world’s top 50 players, but they still have time to add the event to their schedule or not. Top-ranked Mexican golfers Abraham Ancer (15th in world golf rankings) and Carlos Ortiz (81st in world golf rankings) have also committed to the tournament.
A great feature of the Mexico Open is the ability for young Mexican Amateur golfers to earn an exemption into the PGA event. The first exemption was awarded by the Mexico Open selection committee to Jose Cristobal Islas. This excellent young Mexican golfer has committed to playing golf at the University of Oregon. Another exemption was won by Jose Antonio Safa. He won the TaylorMade qualifying tournament for Latin American amateurs in Conrad, Texas.
