El Cardonal, a Tiger Woods-designed course in Mexico, will host the World Wide Technology Championship this fall, the PGA Tour announced Tuesday.
The PGA Tour’s agreement with Mayakoba, drafted by LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman, ended after 2022. Mayakoba hosted LIV Golf’s 2023 season opener in February.
El Cardonal is located in Diamante Cabo San Lucas in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. Opened in 2014, it is the first golf course designed by Woods. The date of the 2023 event has not yet been set, but will be part of the autumn programme.
The World Wide Technology Championship in Mayakoba made golf history in 2007 when it became the first PGA Tour event to be held outside of the United States or Canada.
Taking place this fall, the El Cardonal event will feature 132 golfers competing for 500 FedExCup points on a 7,300-yard, par-72 layout influenced by the Southern California courses where Woods grew up.
Following the PGA Tour Season-End Playoffs, which conclude in August, the fall events will determine the Top 125’s qualification for the next FedExCup season, which begins in January.
