This year the World Wide Technology Championship makes the move from Mayakoba over to the Tiger Woods designed El Cardonal at Diamante in Cabo San Lucas. This course will play completely different than what we were used to at the narrow, water strewn course at Mayakoba. El Cardonal features wide landing areas off the tee, which then places an emphasis on stellar approach play and putting. If the winds stay down, we could see some really low scores in relation to par as all four par 5s will be reachable. If the winds pick up, however, as they tend to do in Cabo, players will face the difficult task of controlling their approach shots. Let’s take a look at three players to target:

Beau Hossler $9,900

Hossler comes into this event playing arguably the best golf of his career. He finished runner-up at the Zozo and seventh at the Shriners. He now heads to a course that should suit his game even more than those two courses did. Hossler’s main weakness is accuracy off the tee, but that isn’t that important this week due to the massively wide fairways. This will allow Beau’s strengths to shine and should give him a chance for another high finish.

Lucas Herbert $8,400

Herbert is a very similar player to Hossler. Both are long and erratic at times off the tee but dynamite with the flatstick. Now yes, he is a high variance player as he has missed a lot of cuts in the last year but he provides a lot of upside at this price. His sole PGA Tour win came in similar conditions at the Bermuda Championship. At $8,400, I’ll gladly take the 65th ranked player in the world who is a proven winner worldwide on a course that fits his game perfectly.

Chris Gotterup $8,200

Gotterup will go under the radar this week at this price tag. This former college star played on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2023 making the cut in 12 of his last 13 events, including 11 top-40 finishes. He bombs the ball off the tee but can be wild at times so this course should suit him. He can feast on the par 5s and rack up birdies to give him a high DK score even if he finishes in the middle of the pack on the leaderboard. The $8,200 is a cheap price for a player who is 40/1 to win the event.
