The field for the 2023 Mexico Open at Vidanta features the best player in the world who will be there to defend his title.
Jon Rahm, the 2023 Masters champion, will return to defend his title at Vidanta Vallarta in Vallarta, Mexico. He’s won four times since claiming the title in Mexico in 2022.
The course, which Greg Norman designed, plays at 7,456 yards and is a par-71 layout.
But outside of Rahm, many of the world’s top players aren’t in the field. Tony Finau, ranked 16th, is the only other player in the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking who has entered. Andrew Putnam, ranked 68th, is the third highest-ranked player teeing it up.
The Mexico Open comes in a point in the schedule where many players take a break. In two weeks, the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club will have a loaded field because of its status as a designated event, and two weeks later is the PGA Championship in Rochester, New York, at Oak Hill Country Club.
But in Mexico, Rahm and Finau will be the heavy favorites.
2023 Masters Tournament winner Jon Rahm is in the field at next week’s Mexico Open at Vidanta to defend his title. Rahm will enter the week as the FedExCup leader and No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
