Describe your overall experience last year competing at Mayakoba and staying at Mayakoba.

I had an incredible experience. I’ve enjoyed all my visits to Mayakoba, but adding my first PGA TOUR win was extra special. Staying at Mayakoba is something my wife and I always look forward to, the service, quality and experience does not get any better anywhere we go all year long.

What was your favorite and most memorable hole at El Camaleón?

My favorite hole is the par-3 15th. I love the setting, the views, I’ve played it well and it’s just a great hole. My most memorable hole is the 16th. It’s one of the most demanding, from the tee shot to the approach.  There is trouble all over and it happened to be a key hole in my win last year.

Mayakoba was your first ever PGA TOUR victory. What kind of special memories does this place hold for you?

For me, everything about it being my first victory stands out, it’s something I’ve dreamed about for a very long time. As far as Mayakoba, it’s just a great place to be and a unique week on the PGA TOUR. From the canal rides to the amazing food and surroundings, it truly is a special week. Also, the warmth and hospitality of the Mexican people is incredible which contributes so much to the Mayakoba experience.

First time you’ll be defending as a champion on the PGA TOUR. What are your thoughts and expectations about heading into a week as the reigning champ?

In golf, we crave confidence and comfort and anytime you go somewhere you’ve won or had success it only helps to boost that confidence. I won the golf tournament, so obviously I played some very good golf and I’ll draw on those shots and holes this year during the event.

Compared to standard weeks on TOUR with events in the U.S., what kind of unique atmosphere and vibe do Mayakoba and the Mayakoba Golf Classic have?

Even though golf is not as big a sport in Mexico as it is in the United States, you can tell the entire region and community are really invested in the tournament. Obviously, there’s a lot of time and energy put into the week by all the volunteers and the whole Mayakoba team, which is evident and greatly appreciated by us players.  There is an energy around the event that you can see everyone involved including the fans truly excited and passionate about us being there.
