|The World Golf Championships are viewed as some of golf's most prestigious competitions. They also represent a bold step toward internationalizing the game. This global series of Championships are the first events ever to be jointly sanctioned by the world's six major golf Tours (the PGA TOUR, European Tour, Japan Golf Tour, PGA Tour of Australasia, Southern Africa Tour, and the Asian Tour) which, collectively, form the International Federation of PGA Tours.
The World Golf Championships would not be possible without the support of our Umbrella (title) Sponsors.
Mexico has a strong history with professional golf and currently features the PGA TOUR’s OHL Classic at Mayakoba, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in November. In addition, the LPGA’s Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico City, the Web.com Tour’s El Bosque Mexico Championship in Guanajuato, and three PGA TOUR Latinoamérica events – the Abierto Mexicano de Golf, the Mazatlan Open, and the San Luis Potosí Open – are currently held in Mexico. Since 1994, the country has hosted more than 70 tournaments on professional golf tours, including the 2002 World Cup of Golf in Puerto Vallarta after it became a World Golf Championships event. Japan’s team of Toshi Izawa and Shigeki Maruyama claimed that title by two strokes over Phil Mickelson and David Toms of the U.S. It was the fourth World Cup held in Mexico, the previous three occurring in 1958 and 1967 in Mexico City and in 1982 in Acapulco
