THINGS TO KNOW

With a 6-under 65, Scotland’s Russell Knox looks to become the third 18-hole leader/co-leader of the Mayakoba Golf Classic presented by UNIFIN in the last four years to convert for the win.

Seeking a fourth top-20 finish in his five most recent PGA TOUR starts, Joaquin Niemann posts his lowest opening-round score since January.

Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo reels off four consecutive birdies to extend his streak of par-or-better rounds at this event to a perfect 17-for-17.

In his bid to become the first player to successfully defend a Mayakoba Golf Classic presented by UNIFIN title, Brendon Todd opens with a 4-under 67.

In his first start since claiming his maiden PGA TOUR title at the Vivint Houston Open, Guadalajara native Carlos Ortiz (67/T5) posted his 16th consecutive round of par-or-better on TOUR this season; comes off a T2 finish at last year’s Mayakoba Golf Classic presented by UNIFIN.

Highlighted by four birdies and an eagle-3 (No. 7), Joaquin Niemann (66/T2) posted his lowest opening-round score on the PGA TOUR since carding the same number at the 2020 Sentry Tournament of Champions (T5); seeks his fifth top-25 in his sixth start of the season.

Chile native Emiliano Grillo (67/T5) offset two early bogeys at Nos. 2 and 4 with four consecutive birdies on Nos. 5-8; is making his fifth consecutive start in the Mayakoba Golf Classic presented by UNIFIN, highlighted by top-10 finishes in 2016 (T10) and 2017 (T9).

Monday Qualifier Akshay Bhatia (67/T5) is making his third start of the season; T9/Safeway Open, MC/Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship; this week marks the California native’s 10th TOUR start.

Tom Hoge (67/T5) offset a lone bogey with six birdies to post his lowest score in 17 rounds at El Cameleón Golf Club; in five previous starts at the Mayakoba Golf Classic presented by UNIFIN, has not finished higher than T44 (2014).

Norway’s Viktor Hovland offset a lone bogey with three birdies and an eagle-3 at No. 5 to open his third Mayakoba Golf Classic presented by UNIFIN with a 4-under 67 (T5); missed the cut in 2018 and 2019.
