SALT LAKE CITY – A video posted by the official PGA Tour Twitter page shows Tony Finau spending time with a young boy named Alex on the golf course. The video is heartwarming.

Finau, 32, invited Alex to play a hole with him at this week’s PGA Tour venue; the Mayakoba Golf Course in Mexico.

Alex shares information on where to hit the ball, what club to use, and how to read the green. Following the playing, Finau gifts Alex one of his golf balls and signs a glove for the young fan.

The 2021 Mayakoba Classic

This week, Finau will contend at the Mayakoba Classic for the fifth time in his career. His best finish came during his debut attempt in 2015 when he concluded the event in a T7. He has missed the cut on two occasions but never finished outside the top 20 when making the cut.

Finau will play alongside Brooks Koepka and Billy Horschel with their Thursday and Friday tee times set for 6:39 a.m. off the 10th tee and 11:19 a.m. off the first, respectively.

Fans of Finau will be able to watch a large majority of his opening two rounds as he, Koepka, and Horschel are members of featured groups this week. The trio will be heavily featured on the Golf Channel’s broadcast throughout the opening two days of play.
