Golf Predictions: Who will win the WGC-Mexico Championship? 2/28/18

Oosthuizen grabs first-round lead at WGC Mexico Championship

Oosthuizen grabs first-round lead at WGC Mexico Championship

He headed Xander Schauffele, Shubhankar Sharma and Chris Paisley by a stroke on a day when defending champion Dustin Johnson hit a 69 that included a near ace at the 17th, his ball landing beyond the pin and spinning back nearly into the hole.

Shubhankar Sharma, the 21-year-old from India who has won twice on the European Tour this season, is playing in his first World Golf Championships.

Hot on his heels are a trio of players getting their first taste of World Golf Championship play. Updates with Sharma at 65.

Sharma's score meant that he was tied in second place after the end of the first round. Johnson is the only player to win all four of them. "And I didn't really have anywhere to miss it coming out of where I was". I was very nervous in the morning, but very happy with the way I put it all together. I think it's more consistent now and playing smart, playing not just driver on every single shot. He closed out his round in style by almost holing out for eagle for an eventual tap-in birdie. Even if Jon Rahm wins, Johnson would have to finish worse than 58th. "It was either hit a good shot or I was probably going into a playoff". I was also really happy with the birdie I made on 18. But he felt good enough to play, and he feels like he's hitting his stride.

"We were walking to the green and converged about 20 yards short and I just looked at him", Thomas said, raising his eyebrows.

Missing from that United Nations lineup was world No. 1 and defending champion Dustin Johnson, No. 3 and the PGA Tour's most recent victor Justin Thomas, No. 4 Jordan Spieth and No. 5 Justin Rose.

"To be honest, I'm actually relaxed now". I just wanted the first round to get out of the way.

"Like I did during the FedExCup, because of the last natural disaster that happened in Mexico and the past earthquakes in the last few months, I want to donate some money to the Mexican Red Cross for all these people in need", Rahm said. "And I proved to myself that I can roll it, so I'll just do the same things that I've been doing", he said. Over 4,000 winners daily.
