World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba

The PGA Tour heads to Mexico for the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba.
Just to be clear, this is the event formerly known as the Mayakoba Championship, although if you were to look at the field, you've have a hard time recognizing this is the same event. For much of its existence, the Mayakoba Championship was held in the spring, opposite a WGC event, but its move to the fall has done wonders to its field. It's still no PLAYERS Championship, but seeing names like Thomas, Koepka and Hovland is a sure sign that this event is now legit. It's not just the names at the top either, go a little further down the odds chart and you'll see even more familiar names like Rose, Fowler and Garcia.
Yes, the new Mayakoba Championship has everything you could want out of a fall season event. Throw in a course history that goes back to 2007 and I dare say this might be one of the best events to handicap all fall. The one slight issue with course history is that the elite players haven't been coming here since 2007, so many have just a year or two of data to go off.
Justin Thomas (14-1)
What a difference a week makes. Last week it was Matt Fitzpatrick
