WGC-Mexico Championship TV Schedule, Tee Times, And Odds: Rory Makes His Return, While DJ Is The Outright Favorite

The second WGC event of the season, the WGC-Mexico Championship, gets underway on Thursday in Mexico City at Club de Golf Chapultepec. The field is loaded, 49 of the top 50 golfers are in it, and this is also the event that Rory McIlroy has chosen to make his return to after suffering a rib injury during the SA Open.

The players will be playing at 7,800 feet above sea level. This is the highest altitude that any PGA Tour event has been played. Before this, the highest event was the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills outside of Denver in 2014. It’s safe to assume we’ll be seeing some long drives this week.

My Pick

Dustin Johnson. Playing at a very high altitude and hitting it as far as he does should make the course feel like miniature golf.
