With thick mangrove waiting to gobble up wayward tee-shots, finding fairways is paramount this week in Mexico. If you keep the ball on the grass then El Camaleon golf course is get-able. Pat Perez won on 21-under last year and 34 players made it into double digits under par.
On paper this is the perfect test for Chez Reavie. Not the longest (149th in driving distance) he strength is accuracy off tee, where he ranking 4th in driving accuracy last season. Put a wedge in his hand and he can do some damage; he was T8 in proximity to the pin with approaches from 125-150 yards last season.
All this put together produced a T4 finish twelve months ago and that is despite a slow start. The 35-year-old kept his form up for pretty much the entire season and hasn’t missed a cut since week 20 at the Byron Nelson. Eventually his consistency will turn into a win and this is the ideal venue.
