The Mayakoba Golf Classic is the final event on the 2020 PGA Tour calendar, and Brooks Koepka isn’t about to miss the action.
Koepka, 30, on Friday announced plans to join a deep squad containing 15 of the world’s top 50 players, including Masters champion and world No.1 Dustin Johnson. Other notable participants include Justin Thomas (# 3), Tony Finau (# 19), Abraham Ancer (# 22) Viktor Hovland (# 24) and Jason Kokrak (# 25).
“The addition of Brooks to the field is great for this tournament and certainly guarantees that this will be the best assembled field in 14 years of history,” said tournament director Joe Mazzeo. “A global TV audience will focus on Mayakoba in just a few weeks, as the final official PGA Tour event of the calendar year takes place here in El Camaleón.
Currently ranked No.12, Koepka holds four major titles: the back-to-back US Open in 2017 and 2018, and back-to-back PGA Championships in 2018 and 2019, making his second appearance in the Mayakoba. The former world No. 1 missed the cup in 2014 on the exemption of a sponsor.
The Mayakoba Golf Classic will return to El Camaleón Golf Club in Playa del Carmen from December 3-6.
