In 2023 he just made the transition from amateur to professional golf and he did it in great shape. He was awarded as champion of the 2023 Latin America Amateur Championship, which gave him the opportunity to play three majors.

Jesus Montenegro - Argentina

In the two tournaments that opened the season in Mexico, he was the only one who managed to finish in the top 10 in both: 7th place in Tulum and a great second place at the Atlas Country Club, which places him in the top 6 of the Fotinet Cup , pending the completion of the ECP Brazil Open, where he already made the cut.

Clay Feagler - United States

The PGA Tour Américas began with his victory in the Bupa Championship at Tulum, in his first professional title with the addition that he did so by competing in the tournament from qualification. He is 25 years old and entered the circuit with conditional status after placing 78th on the PGA Tour Canada, but that victory in Mexico assures him full status for the remainder of the season.

Marcos Montenegro - Argentina

Known at Los Inkas Golf Club because last year he won the Diners Club Perú Open, which was his first victory as a professional. The 26-year-old Argentine already knows what it is like to compete in the Korn Ferry Tour in 2022, and he hopes to have the tickets again this year to repeat history.

The professionals Julián Périco and Joaquín Lolas, as well as the amateurs Mauricio Tello and Jaime Yzaga, received the invitations granted by the Peruvian Golf Federation and Los Inkas Golf Club to join Luis Fernando Barco, who already has a place in the field by virtue of its current status on the PGA Tour Américas.

The Mexican is one of the most experienced on the circuit – he won the Korn Ferry Tour in 2018 to join the PGA Tour. He is the top tournament winner on the PGA Tour Latin America, with a total of six events in 56 tournaments played, although he is still looking to celebrate in Lima.

José de Jesús Rodríguez - Mexico

Devon Bling - United States

Runner-up in the 2018 US Amateur, he went on to compete in the Masters and the US Open the following year when he was only 19 years old. He only turned professional in 2022 where he came close to winning two tournaments – second in Commissionaires and Windsor.

Ben Carr - United States

At 23 years old, in 2023 he played the Masters and the US Open, in which he managed to make the cut. His season last year was very consistent, making the cut in six of seven tournaments on the PGA Tour Canada.

Stuart Macdonald - Canada

24th place in the Mexico Open at Vidanda on the PGA Tour after arriving via qualification speaks of a level player. In a total of 14 tournaments – between the PGA Latam and the PGA Tour Canada – he achieved a victory (Ottawa Open), a second place (Windsor) and another third place (Colombia Classic).

Julián Etulain - Argentina

Winner twice of the Diners Club Perú Open, 2013 and 2014, the Argentine has experience of more than 290 tournaments, 50 of them on the PGA Tour. At 35 years old and with so many presences in Lima, he hopes to repeat the joy of celebrating at Los Inkas Golf Club.
