A look ahead: PGA TOUR Latinoamérica 2022-23 season resumes next week

3 Min Read


    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida—Following an extended break after the trio of December 2022 events that opened the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica, players are set to resume the 2022-23 season next week. The race to the finish line will be a busy one, as the nine tournaments left to play will be spread over a span of 16 weeks. The season's final day will be Sunday, July 2, with the top-five players on the Totalplay Cup standings at the conclusion of the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica Championship securing Korn Ferry Tour cards for the 2024 season.

    The next eight tournaments are 72-hole, 36-hole cut events, while the season-ending event is exclusive to the top-60 players on the Totalplay Cup standings and is a no-cut, 72-hole tournament. All these events will be played Thursday through Sunday.

    Here’s a quick look at the weeks ahead:

    Played in consecutive weeks to resume the season, the Termas de Río Hondo Invitational (March 16-19) and the Roberto De Vicenzo Memorial 100 Years (March 23-26) will close another edition of the Zurich Argentina Swing. The competition rewards the player who accumulates the most Totalplay Cup points in the four Argentina events. He will earn a bonus of U.S. $10,000. The Tour has already played two tournaments in Argentina, with Sweden’s Linus Lilliedahl, who collected 600 points with back-to-back runner-up finishes at the VISA Open de Argentina and the Neuquén Argentina Classic last December, currently in the lead.

    While the Termas de Río Hondo Invitational is joining the Tour for the third time, the Roberto De Vicenzo Memorial 100 Years is a one-time tournament conceived as a tribute to the legendary Roberto De Vicenzo on the 100th anniversary of his birth. The tournament crowning the Zurich Argentina Swing winner will take us to Ranelagh Golf Club, the World Golf Hall of Famer’s home course in Buenos Aires.

    Making it a trio of consecutive events to resume the season, the 68th playing of the JHSF Brazil Open (March 30-April 2) will take the Tour to Fazenda Boa Vista in Porto Feliz, for the fourth time since 2018. At the conclusion of this event, the highest-ranked Latin American player on the Totalplay Cup standings will earn a playing spot in the PGA TOUR’s Mexico Open at Vidanta, an official FedExCup tournament on the 2022-23 schedule.

    In Brazil, players with conditional status on Tour will have their last opportunities to earn Totalplay Cup points before the traditional reshuffle. According to their performances up to that point, the reshuffle will set up new priority rankings for players for the reminder of the season.

    After a three-week break, the Tour will play consecutive events in Peru and Ecuador. Los Inkas Golf Club in Lima, Peru, will host a PGA TOUR Latinoamérica event for the 10th time—the Diners Club Peru Open (April 27-30). This will be the last national open on the schedule. It will be followed by the Kia Open (May 4-7), to be played at the Quito Tennis & Golf Club in Ecuador’s capital city. This is the ninth playing of the tournament since its launch in 2014.

    Two weeks later, the Colombian swing makes its return, with back-to-back tournaments in Bogota and Bucaramanga. The Colombia Classic (May 25-28) will lead the way at Ruitoque Golf & Country Club in Bucaramanga, followed by the El Rincón Championship (June 1-4) at El Rincón de Cajicá in suburban Bogota a week later.

    Following another two-week break, the 2022-23 season finishes with consecutive tournaments in Mexico. The second edition of the Jalisco Open Guadalajara (June 22-25) at Atlas Country Club in Guadalajara, will be followed by the closing tournament of the campaign, the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica Championship (June 30-July 2) at PGA Riviera in Tulum, Quintana Roo.

    Here are the season-ending rewards for the top Totalplay Cup performers:
