MEXICO CITY, Mexico. – With the 2018 World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship just six weeks away from returning to Mexico City, the first players have committed to playing in the tournament, including the likes of defending champion and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson and Spain’s Sergio Garcia. Forty-five to 50 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking are expected to compete in the 2018 WGC-Mexico Championship, which will be held from Feb. 28 - March 4, 2018 at Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City.
Johnson won his first start of 2018 – the Sentry Tournament of Champions – two weeks ago by a dominant eight-stroke margin as he continues to hone his game ahead of the first World Golf Championships event of the calendar year. The win moved the South Carolina native to No. 2 in the FedExCup standings behind American Pat Perez.
Johnson’s victory at the 2017 WGC-Mexico Championship was one of his two World Golf Championships victories of the season, as he held off England’s Tommy Fleetwood by one stroke at Club de Golf Chapultepec. Fleetwood joins Johnson among the early commitments in the hopes of improving upon his runner-up finish in 2017.
After a memorable 2017 that saw Garcia grab his first major title at the Masters Tournament, the lovable Spaniard will return to Mexico City after a respectable T12 performance in 2017. Garcia is a 10-time PGA TOUR winner, but will be in search of his first World Golf Championships title.
Other notable commitments include reigning U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama, winner of two World Golf Championships events last season.
