Numbers 65 and upwill fight it out south of the border forthe Mayakoba GolfClassic crown. It may not have the star power that the Accenture has, butall of thesepros will certainly take a win this weektosew up exemptions for next year andtake strides tomove up the rankings for upcoming WGC events.


No longwinded previews, just the picks…down and dirty.

Short: Brian Gay 18 to 1
The defending champ from ’08has four top-20’s in five events including a 5th and 6th so far in ’09. Gay is 3rd in fairways hit and 11th in total birdies.

Middle of the Road: Kevin Na 25 to 1
5th at the Sony and 3rd at the FBRwere close calls that could turninto a win this week against a weaker field.

Longshot: Jerry Kelly 50 to 1
Kelly was playing in the Accenture last year, so a trip to Mexico might not be what Kelly had in mind for this week. Jerry is 7th in putting average in ’09 and 18th in the all around rank.

Good Luck!
