The Puerto Rico Open is the first PGA Tour Tournament held in Puerto Rico, and it has served as an alternate Tour event
The Puerto Rico Open’s inaugural year was 2008, when it was presented by Banco Popular. Since 2011, it has been presented by seepuertorico.com and played at the Coco Beach Golf and Country Club. The inaugural tournament was won by Greg Craft.
In 2018, in the wake of the destruction of Hurricane Maria, the Puerto Rico Open became an unofficial fundraising event, with a win by the team of George McNeill and Cheyenne Woods.
The Puerto Rico Open winner earns 300 FedEx Cup points, and 24 OWGR points (the WGC-Cadillac, played the same week, is worth 550/70-80)
As an alternate field event, the Puerto Rico Open generally does not attract big name players. It strikes me, though, as a good place for a journeyman player to make his name and secure his card.
