The 30-year old Mexican native had his best outing of the season despite playing through a left shoulder injury at Mayakoba, carding rounds of 67-65-67-66 to finish in second place at 19-under-par. Ortiz was slated to return as the defending champion at the HPE Houston Open, where he yielded a 13-under-par performance to win by two strokes.
