Cameron Beckman wins for
the third time on PGA Tour.
With Camera On
Cameron Beckman posted a a final round 4-under-
par 67 and won the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Playa del
Carmen, Mexico, by two strokes Sunday over Joe Du-
rant and Brian Stuard. Beckman finished the event
at 15-under-par 269 on the par-71 El Camaleon Golf
Beckman was 2-under-par on the opening nine,
and after his first birdie on the back nine at the par- 5
13th hole, he found himself in a three-way tie for the
lead with Durant and J.P. Hayes.
Both Durant and Hayes gave strokes back on their
closing holes and a birdie by Beckman at the 17th
hole resulted in the final margin of victory.
The win is the third career PGA Tour title for
Beckman and his first since the 2008 Frys.com Open.
In all of those wins, Beckman has begun the final
round three shots off the pace.
Durant led after the first, second and third
rounds. His Saturday 69 was a rollercoaster. He built
a four-stroke lead with birdies on the first two holes,
but then had a double-bogey on the par- 4 third hole
and a bogey on the par- 4 fourth.
He later added birdies on Nos. 8, 9, 17 and 18 and
a bogey on No. 14. This marked the third time Durant
has entered the final round with at least a share of
At the 2001 Bob Hope Classic he won and at the
2001 Shell Houston Open he tied for second.
Asked what the key was to his victory, Beckman
said, “Without question putting. I mean, I hit the ball
well also, but this is probably the best I’ve putted
in a long time. Probably since the last time I won. I
just put a new putter in play two weeks ago, and just
absolutely putted beautifully on these greens.
“My caddie and I read them really well, too. Just a
beautiful week of putting.”
John Daly strung three rounds in the 60s through
Saturday’s play. Matt Every was disqualified on Sat-
urday for signing an incorrect scorecard.
He recorded rounds of 69-71-71 this week, but
signed for a 70 on Saturday (signing for a birdie on the
par- 4 sixth hole, when his actual score was a par).
The cut came at 1-under-par 141, with 76 players
advancing to the weekend.
Daly closed with an 81 to plummet to a tie for 67th.
