Mr. 57 Cristobal Del Solar is in the field at Mexico Open at Vidanta


If you didn’t get a chance to see Mr. 57 in action two weeks ago, here’s your chance.

Cristobal Del Solar is in the field for this week’s Mexico Open at Vidanta. He posted the lowest score ever in a PGA Tour-sanctioned tournament at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Astara Golf Championship in Colombia on Feb. 8. Del Solar shot a 13-under 57 on the par-70 Pacos course, one of two used for that event and also the shortest on the Korn Ferry Tour. It played at 6,254 yards at nearly 9,000 feet above sea level.

His scorecard from the first round that week showed four 4s but the rest of it was all 3s and 2s. He had two eagles and nine birdies. Del Solar followed that up, though, with rounds of 69 and 75 before closing with a 63 to tie for fifth.

As Justin Ray noted, it was the lowest 72-hole score on the Korn Ferry Tour by a golfer who had a round 74 or higher.

This week’s event at the Greg Norman-designed Vidanta Vallarta will play as a par-71, 7,456-yard in Puerto Vallarta along the west coast of Mexico.

Del Solar made his PGA Tour debut a year ago in this event, posting scores of 66 and 74 and then missing the cut. He is in the field this week on a sponsor exemption.

Del Solar is joined in the field by defending champion Tony Finau (ranked 24th in the world), Nicolai Hojgaard (No. 33), Emiliano Grillo (No. 35) and Ryan Fox (No. 36). Also in the field is Padraig Harrington. Will Zalatoris was originally committed to play but withdrew shortly after his tie for second at the Genesis Invitational on Sunday.
