Viktor Hovland poses with course volunteers on the 18th green after winning the 2020 Puerto Rico Open.
Players in the field at this week’s Puerto Rico Open are all hoping they can follow in Viktor Hovland’s footsteps. A year ago, the rising talent from Norway rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to claim his first career PGA Tour title. The victory continued the momentum that the 23-year-old had been building since turning pro in 2019, and was eventually followed by a second win at the end of 2020 in Mexico.
Hovland’s climb in the World Ranking has him qualified for this week’s WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession, so he won’t at Grand Reserve Country Club in Rio Grande to attempt to repeat as champion. Nevertheless, a handful of other European notables are in the field, including Ian Poulter, Padraig Harrington and Thomas Pieters, as well as a bevy of young talent.
Eight of the top-10 golfers from the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour Points List will be competing along with tour winner Smylie Kaufman who will be playing a PGA Tour event for the first time since the 2020 Puerto Rico Open.
This week’s winner will receive 300 FedEx Cup points and a $540,000 share of the $3 million purse.
