Norwegian Golfer Viktor Hovland Wins The Mayakoba Tournament

Norwegian Viktor Hovland made a 67-stroke, five-under-par run on Sunday to retain the title of the PGA Mayakoba tournament, played in the Mexican Caribbean with a prize pool of $ 7.2 million.

After coming back and making the best performance of his career this Saturday, with a card of 62 strokes, Hovland was not so fine in the fourth ronds, he committed a couple of 'bogey', but thanks to six 'birdies' he secured the victory with 261 hits, four more than the Mexican Carlos Ortiz.

Hovland became the first champion to renew his reign in Mexico.

Chilean Joaquín Niemman finished in fifth place, while Mexican Abraham Ancer moved up 18 seats to finish seventh, tied with three other players, including Spain's Sergio García.

Established in 2007 as the first PGA Tour tournament outside the United States and Canada, Mayakoba took place this year with the absence of the Spanish Jon Rahm, the world's first player, who takes a few weeks off, after an intense activity on the tour.
