Tournament of greats

The 2014 Tour season began last month with Pacific Rubiales, held in Colombia and championed by the German Alex Cejka.

Since then the tour has visited various destinations, including Chile and Brazil.

This week, the second most important U.S. circuit is coming to Panama, where the North American Kevin Foley will try to defend the title of the Panama Claro Championship.

Foley, who last year received his card to play in the 2014 PGA Tour, will have a complicated mission, because all the winners of the first three events of the season, Cejka, Adam Hadwin, and Jon Curran, will be on the courses at the Panama Golf Club.

One of the most inspired players arriving is Cejka, since he leads the money list. The German has played two events and made ​​the cut for both. One he won and the other (Brazil Champions) he came in second place. Cejka has accumulated $221.400 dollars in prize money.

Another standout is the American Curran, whose victory in Brazil puts him at second in revenue. This year he has played all three events and made the cut for all but one.

Meanwhile, the Canadian Adam Hadwin, monarch in the Chile Classic, has $138,484 dollars in prizes and has played every round of the three stops this season.

As for the best Latin Americans on the money list, they are the Mexican Carlos Ortiz and the Colombian Manuel Villegas. Ortiz is ranked seventh and has been in the top 25 twice.

Villegas is in eighth place. He has made ​​the cut in all three tournaments in which he has seen action and has a top 10.
