The Mexican Open or Abierto Mexicano de Golf is the national open golf tournament of Mexico. It was first played in 1944 at the Club de Golf Chapultepec. It was an event on the Tour de las Américas between 2003 and 2006, being co-sanctioned by the European Challenge Tour from 2004. It became a Nationwide Tour event in 2008,[1] and was rescheduled from December to January, which resulted in no tournament in 2007. In 2009, due to the outbreak of swine flu, the Mexican Open was rescheduled from May to September.[2][3] In 2013, the tournament was moved to March and became an official event for the PGA Tour Latinoamérica. The tournament would also be moved to Club de Golf Mexico.
