He won by one stroke over his compatriot,  Rickie Fowler, world number 10, who at the last hole had a chance to break the tie. South Korean Si Woo Kim finished third.

Participation at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba totaled 132 players, including the champion of the eleventh edition of this PGA TOUR event, Pat Perez; the world number 10, Rickie Fowler; the five-time PGA TOUR champion, Patrick Reed; and the winner of the OHL Classic 2014, Charley Hoffman.

A pioneer in the world of golf

The OHL Classic at Mayakoba made history in the world of golf on being the first event on the PGA TOUR to be played outside of the United States and Canada.

The luxury Mayakoba resort project has become an international reference as a model of sustainable development for tourism initiatives and for its protection of the ecosystem. For this reason, it has been recognized by the World Tourism Organization (WTO) and the Rainforest Alliance, which in 2011 granted the project their top distinctions: the Ulysses and the Sustainable Standard-Setter awards, respectively. Likewise, the project has been selected to participate in the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III), the most important conference organized by the United Nations on the subject of sustainable urban development and held this year in Quito (Ecuador).
