WGC Mexico Championship

WGC Mexico Championship

Can Rory Mcilroy go one better than last year at the WGC Mexico Championship and win the tournament for the first time. Defending champion Dustin Johnson is a 10/1 shot for the competition after winning it by five strokes last year.

The WGC Mexico Championship is hosted at the Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico since 2017 when it moved from Doral in Florida and is one of the four annual World Golf Championships.

The WGC Mexico Championship consists of a 72 hole stroke play event that has no cut. If players tie after the 72 holes, then a sudden-death playoff is to decide the winner.

With the prize fund standing at an impressive $10 million you certainly get some of the golfs big players turn up with the likes of Justin Thomas, Rory Mcilroy, Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood, Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott all set to play.

Golf Players to Watch

Hideki Matsuyama had a great last week at Riviera, but typically his putting let him down meaning he could only muster a 5th place finish. Hopefully, as a two-time WGC champion he can go a few places better and take the win this week.

Adam Scott got back to his well-renowned ball-striking best with the win at the Riviera last week. Like Matsuyama, however, putting still lets Scott down when it comes to the big stage. 

Along with Rory Mcilroy, these are the players that are likely to make a significant push to win the WGC Mexico Championship. With the tournament live to watch it will undoubtedly give us at Off The Centre something to keep us entertained over the weekend. Let's hope we can see if anyone can equal Justin Thomas' 62 in 2018 and 2019.
