The 2024 Mexico Open kicked off on February 22 at the Vidanta Vallarta in Mexico and saw many golfers, including the likes of defending champion Tony Finau, teeing it off at the tournament. Aside from Finau, the field at the same time boasts other talented athletes as well, including the likes of Jake Knapp, Nicolai Hojgaard, and Sami Valimaki.

Interestingly, all eyes in the community would be on the trophy and the title that the winner of this powerful field would enjoy. However, that’s not all that is being awarded. The triumphing golfer would also be able to take home a winner’s cut from the total prize money that is being offered.

As a non-signature event for the 2024 season, this purse and the payouts at the Mexico Open are a bit pale in comparison to the likes of last week’s Genesis Invitational and even the Arnold Palmer Invitational in a couple of weeks, but it’s still a valuable opportunity in the FedEx Cup race and trying to qualify for signature events and major championships.

A look at the rewards makes it very clear that the best of the best are competing for the title in Mexico. Who among them has the best shot at grabbing the win though?

Players to watch out for at the event this week

A total of 132 players started their battle at Vidanta Vallarta. However, after two days of play, only a total of 65 golfers could make the cut after Friday. Despite all of this, it appears the final day is set up for another magnificent display of golf, with Knapp leading the powerful field and propelling past the likes of defending champion Finau and Valimaki.

Although Finau won the 2023 edition of the PGA Tour event, it appears he has had a bit of a rough time on the greens. The pro is currently placed at T20 with a score of 8-under. Even Hojgaard wasn’t able to leave a mark as he finished moving day at T63. But, when it comes to the top of the leaderboard, Knapp has managed to cement his place at the top with figures of 67-64-63 at a total of 19 under, a lead of four strokes.

Interestingly, apart from the money and the trophy, the champion would receive 500 FedEx Cup points. Meanwhile, the triumphant golfer would be awarded 31.11485 points on the Official World Golf Rankings for the event, which boasts a field rating of 180.90801, approximately 1.3397 more than what was offered to Finau last year.
