The PGA Tour season is shifting alongside fairly rapidly and earlier than it the primary weekend of April will likely be right here, and we’ll be watching The Masters.
For now, although, we now have arrived on the second World Golf Championship occasion of the 4 held yearly. Final 12 months, the WGC-Mexico Championship was the place Phil Mickelson grabbed his first win since profitable the Open Championship in 2013. Lefty added one other win on the AT&T Pebble Seashore Professional-Am this season to carry his PGA Tour whole win quantity to 44.
Clearly, this week Phil is hoping to construct on his early season success and defend his title at Membership de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico Metropolis, however he’s going to be going through a bunch of hungry golfers in Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Tiger Woods.

I’d desire to not choose a favourite, however I don’t assume I can keep away from it this week.
I’ve acquired to go along with Rory McIlroy although Dustin Johnson has had success right here and Justin Thomas almost received final season and is coming off a disappointing second place end at Riviera.
McIlroy has accomplished all however win this season. In his final three begins he’s completed T4-T5-T4. He leads the PGA Tour in strokes gained off-the-tee, which is able to work to his benefit at altitude, is third in strokes gained tee-to-green and is fifth in strokes gained whole.
