WGC – Mexico Championship

Course — Club de Golf Chapultepec, 7,345 yards, par 71

With just two years of PGA Tour service under its belt, this track is a relative newbie in the rotation. That being said, replacing the event previously held at the Trump National Doral with one in Mexico, has a nice ring to it. The course has played relatively tough in its brief existence, yielding winning scores of 16-under and 14-under in 2017 and 2018. This weeks winner will join Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson on the list of WGC winners in Mexico.

The field will consist of just 70 players; meaning there will be NO cut

Marquee names — Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau, Tommy Fleetwood, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Hideki Matsuyama, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Tiger Woods
