With the Butterfield Bermuda Championship in the rearview mirror, we look forward to this week’s World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. For the 16th straight year, El Camaleon Golf Course at the Mayakoba Resort will host this event.
Looking at the top of previous leaderboards, the metrics that predict the most success at this course include SG: Putting and Greens in Regulation percentage (GIR%). A par 71, 7,034-yard track, El Camaleon is a course that rewards those who can get off the greens quickly.
Below, I will give out my two best longshot bets to win the 2022 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba.

Adam Hadwin (+6000): 0.2u
The first golfer we are targeting this week is Adam Hadwin, who sits at 60/1. A fantastic putter and strong iron player, this course sets up perfectly for Hadwin.
He has made the cut in seven straight tournaments dating back to last season. To kick off this season, he is three-for-three on made cuts and looked sharp in his T10 finish at the Shriners Children’s Open.
On TOUR this season, he ranks 20th in SG: Putting and 37th in GIR%. These strong numbers are not outliers despite the smaller sample size, as he ranked inside the top 75 on TOUR in both SG: Putting and GIR% last year.
This success should continue at El Camaleon, where he has made three of his last four cuts with two top-10 finishes.
Sepp Straka (+8000): 0.1u
The other golfer we are backing this week is Sepp Straka, who is listed at 80/1. Ending last season in outstanding form, Straka has carried that momentum into this season as well.
In fact, he has made six straight cuts dating back to last season. To kick off this season, he is three-for-three on made cuts and looked exceptional at the Sanderson Farms Championship with his second-place finish.
On TOUR this season, he ranks 46th in SG: Putting and 43rd in GIR%. These strong numbers are not outliers despite the smaller sample size, as he ranked inside the top 90 on TOUR in both SG: Putting and GIR% last year.
This success should continue at El Camaleon, where he has made two straight cuts and finished 33rd last year. Will he win this tournament? Probably not, but at 80/1, it is certainly worth a small play.
Other Outright Winner Plays:
- Aaron Wise (16/1): 0.4u
- Andrew Putnam (40/1): 0.3u
Best of luck!
