In This Article
Feliz Día de los Muertos and welcome to your Day 2 Mayakoba Insights!
In an effort to provide you the most relevant information throughout the week, we'll be sending these daily insights directly to your inbox each morning.
Mayakoba Insights from Day 1 included:
- WWT Ambassador and PGA Tour pro Keith Mitchell discussing the challenge that awaits at El Camaleón.
- Mitchell also talks about how he integrates technology and data into his tournament prep throughout the PGA Tour season.
- Details about WWT's partnership with the APGA Tour and driving diversity in the game of golf.
WWT is proud to partner with PGA Tour Champions professional Billy Andrade, who earlier this year was named the 2022 recipient of the PGA TOUR's Payne Stewart Award presented by Southern Company. Andrade's recognition further solidifies his alignment with WWT, which cherishes many of the same values.
We recently caught up with Andrade about winning the Payne Stewart Award, which recognizes sportsmanship and a commitment to charitable giving. Andrade also discusses the role core values have played in his career development and gives tips on how he would watch the World Wide Championship at Mayakoba if he were fan.
We're excited to be hosting a one-of-a-kind concert experience tonight at the WWT Beach Bash and private Ben Rector concert. The event is presented by Cisco, a partner of WWT's for over 30 years.
Rector is an award-winning musician, national recording pop artist based out of Nashville, Tennessee. He's collaborated with a wide range of artists including Kenny G, Snoop Dogg, children's choirs, gospel choirs and even Jim Henson's Creature Shop. His most recent album, The Joy of Music, can be found on your favorite streaming app.
The event is being hosted at Maykana at the Fairmont Mayakoba, a multi-million dollar beach club that gives beachside relaxation a whole new meaning. Check out Ben's single, Wonderful World, below.
While many of our guests are playing in our WWT Pro-Am presented by F5, some of our staff will be visiting with local students of the K'iin Beh school.
WWT is proud to send a portion of the tournament's proceeds to K'iin Beh, which will use the money to to support its mission of providing high quality education to poor children, strengthen self-esteem by instilling human and civil values, and teach children to live with goals and leadership.
This year, we are thrilled about a new component to our growing relationship, in which we'll help K'iin Beh students discover the talents and interests that can shape their future careers.
WWT mentors will spend time with students to identify their passions, strengths and aspirations, and align those ambitions to potential careers. By acting as advocates for students, we help bolster their confidence and ability to pursue their passion.
And our Career Readiness Workshop will help students identify transferable skills, bolster resume writing and understand the importance of networking, giving them a foundation to launch their careers.
