NOTES:The PGA Tour heads to Mexico this week for the OHL Classic at
Mayakoba. Two-time major winner Angel Cabrera is the only player ranked in the top 60 of the world playing this week. The purse increased $100,000 from last year to $6.1 million, with the winner receiving $1,098,000.

Cabrera, ranked 60th, won the Greenbrier Classic in June for his first PGA Tour win in five years. It was also his first non-major win on the PGA Tour. Cabrera won the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont and the 2009 Masters.

Greg Norman designed the course for this week's tournament, El Camaleon Golf Club, which opened for play in 2006. The course bends through mangrove jungles, limestone canals and oceanfront stretches of sand. There is a massive underground cavern in the heart of the opening fairway. The course is located 35 minutes from downtown Cancun on the Riviera Maya.

Last year, Harris English fired rounds of 68-62-68-65 and cruised to a 4-stroke win over Brian Stuard. English finished 72 holes at 21-under-par 263 for his second PGA Tour victory.

In 2012, rookie John Huh parred eight straight playoff holes to defeat Robert Allenby. Huh fired an 8-under 63 in the final round to get into the clubhouse at 13-under-par 271. Allenby, who hasn't won on the PGA Tour since the 2001 Pennsylvania Classic, was five groups behind Huh and in the lead at 15-under. However, he faltered to a double bogey on the par-4 18th to close out a 6-under 65. The closing double bogey left Allenby tied for the lead with Huh. In the playoff, Huh and Allenby matched pars on the first seven holes. On the eighth, Allenby blinked. He tripped to a bogey, while Huh got up-and-down for his par to secure his first PGA Tour title.

Cameron Beckman posted a 4-under 67 in the final round to come from behind and win in 2010. Beckman finished the championship at 15-under 269 and won the title by two strokes over Stuard and Joe Durant, who led after each of the first three rounds, but struggled to a 1-over 72 on the final day. The win was Beckman's third on the PGA Tour after the 2001 Southern Farm Bureau Classic and the 2008 Frys.com Open. Beckman was the only player in the field to shoot four rounds in the 60s.

In 2008, after going 292 career starts without a win, Brian Gay picked up his first PGA Tour victory. Gay completed the tournament at 16-under-par 264.

Fifty-year-old Fred Funk birdied the second playoff hole to defeat Jose Coceres in 2007. Funk finished the event at 14-under-par 266 and held at least a share of the lead following every round. The victory was his eighth PGA Tour win and first since the 2005 Players Championship.

With the win in 2007, Funk became the second player to win a PGA Tour event after winning a Champions Tour event. Craig Stadler was the first to accomplish the feat. Funk also joined a rare club of players who have won PGA Tour events in their 50s. Six players have posted wins in their 50s - Sam Snead, Art Wall, Jim Barnes, John Barnum, Stadler and Funk.

The 2007 tournament was the first PGA Tour event held in Mexico. In fact, it was the first official event conducted by the PGA Tour held outside of the United States and Canada.

The PGA Tour travels to Florida in three weeks for the Hero World Challenge, where Zach Johnson will defend his title. Tournament host Tiger Woods is expected to play for the first time since August. Woods has been out with a back injury.
