The OHL Classic at Mayakoba is a PGA Tour golf tournament which was played for the first time in the week of February 19–25, 2007. It is the first PGA Tour event to be played in Mexico this century.

From 2007–2012, it was an alternate event played the same week as the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, and a counting event for the FedEx Cup, but like other alternate events it only counted for half points. In 2008, the prize fund was US$3.5 million (with a first prize of $630,000), making it the richest golf tournament in Mexico.[1] Fred Funk won the inaugural 2007 event at the age of 50 years, 257 days, making him the oldest player to win a PGA Tour event in 32 years.[2]

The event was not part of the 2013 season, but was moved to November 2013 to be part of the 2013–14 season as a primary event in the early part of the season, which started in the month of October for the first time.[3] The new schedule was also the first where the winner of the Mayakoba earned full FedEx Cup points and a Masters invitation. The 2014 event was also played in November and was part of the 2014–15 season.
