Mexico Open at Vidanta ready to celebrate it's second edition

The 2022 Mexico Open at Vidanta tournament, an official event of the PGA TOUR, has officially confirmed that defending champion and No. 2 of the world Jon Rahm will be participating. Taking place from April 27 to 30 at the Vidanta Vallarta golf course, 144 professional golfers will compete for a $7.7 million dollar prize pool and 500 FedExCup points. Last year, Rahm led from start to finish in Puerto Vallarta with an overall score of -17(64-66-68-69=267), eventually ending up one stroke ahead of Brandon Wu and Tony Finau on Sunday.

"We are very excited to carry out the second edition of the Mexico Open at Vidanta. The first edition was just the beginning of a new era of golf in our country, and for this coming month of April, we will provide the best experience for our attendees and fans", commented Rodrigo Suárez Gilly, Executive Director of the Mexico Open at Vidanta.

Rahm's early confirmation indicates the relevance the tournament has within the calendar of the PGA TOUR's top stars. After his victory at the Mexico Open at Vidanta, Jon has added three more victories within the maximum tour of this sport, accumulating 10 wins on the PGA TOUR, and eight more, internationally.

Grupo Vidanta was proud to host the second Mexico Open at Vidanta Nuevo Nayarit, a major social and sporting event for Mexico and Latin America. Jose Alonso, Director of Operations for Grupo Vidanta, enthusiastically said "We welcome the world's golf elite to our facility which has greatly improved since its debut on the PGA TOUR last year." He went on to say that this tournament is proof of what the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta have to offer: "the best service, hospitality, beautiful landscapes, and the ability to make things happen. We invite you all to come enjoy some fantastic days of golfing along with gastronomy, entertainment, and time at the beach with family or friends."

For his part, Fernando Lemmen-Meyer, president of the Mexican Golf Federation (FMG), thanked the work carried out by Grupo Salinas and Grupo Vidanta for the growth of national golf. "At the Mexican Golf Federation we are very proud of this alliance with Grupo Salinas and Grupo Vidanta that allows us to have the elite of world golf in our country. We also thank all the media

For the past two years, Grupo Salinas has been striving to give golfers in Mexico and Latin America a chance to develop their talents, which is why they have granted exemptions for national players in PGA TOUR events. This allows amateur golfers to gain experience in professional golf and encourages them to share their passion for the sport, said Lemmen-Meyer.
