Notes about Big Break Mexico
- This is the 19th season of The Big Break series on the Golf Channel.
- Lorena Ochoa made a guest appearance during the taping of the series, and competed in one of the challenges. She also tried her hand as the series' signature gimmick, the Glass Break Challenge. How'd Ochoa do? She smashed the glass on her first try.
- The series was taped in Mexico at the Playa Paraiso Golf Club in Riviera Maya. The host course was the resort's par-72 layout designed by P.B. Dye.
