The WGC Mexico Championship gets underway on Thursday at Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City. Obviously, being a WGC event, the best in the world will be participating making your chances of seeing some pretty spectacular golf are high.
Dustin Johnson is the defending champion and the favorite to win again this year (he is now second only to Tiger Woods – 18 – in WGC wins with 5), but the guy right behind him, Tommy Fleetwood, appears to be ready to be the next big thing on Tour. Fleetwood finished one stroke behind Johnson last year and he finished fourth last week at the Honda Classic.
The rest of the field is littered with names you know as six of the top 10 in the world are in the field. There is no cut this week with only 65 players in the field and the marquee group on Thursday will be the Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm group which could result in a driving contest for the ages.

Can I really go wrong picking either DJ or Rahm to win this thing? Both played extremely well in this event last season (DJ won and Rahm finished T3), and there is no reason to expect that these two bombers won’t overpower the course again and take advantage of the thin air. So, with that being said, I’m not going to give you just one name, but two. Take your pick.
Although, keep an eye on Tommy Fleetwood, the kid has been playing outstanding golf and finished solo second last year.
While I’m throwing names out there, you may want to keep an eye on Justin Rose. Just look at his record as of late: T10, T2, T10, T10, 1st, 1st, T4, T10, T5, 1st, T22, and T8. Wow!
