Mexicana Master II - August 15th-18th 2013 - Golf Tournament Results

Hello Folks.

The Gran Bahia Tulum and Riviera Maya Golf Course hosted the Mexicana Masters II golf tournamnent on August 15th-18th.

A great time was had by all, helped by spectacular weather, lots of golf, bountiful buffets, sandy beaches, sports, yoga, dancing and mucho tequilla.

As for the Golf, some shone for a few moments, some faltered at the death, some made miracle comebacks and some sandbagged their way to the finish. In the end only a few points separated the field and the all important Sunday Scramble was the decisive factor.

See Results below the slideshow.
