2016 OHL Classic at Mayakoba Tournament Preview

OHL Classic at Mayakoba LogoThe OHL Classic is played at the El Camaleón Golf Club in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Although the weather can be beautiful in Mexico, some years the rains come and cause the schedule to become condensed. Expert picks can be tough for the OHL Classic because of weaker fields and unpredictable weather but our tournament preview should help you with your fantasy golf research. One of the last PGA Tour stops before going on their winter break, fantasy golf players will have only a few chances left to pad their bankroll in fantasy golf.

Historically winners of the OHL Classic were golfers that were more accurate off the tee and so concentrate on players with high accuracy driving percentages. Obviously course history comes into play here as you have a lot of PGA Tour veterans that mix in with rookies that have never played El Camaleón Golf Club.
