Defending Champion: Adam Scott
TV Coverage: Golf Channel, NBC
Formerly known as the WGC - Cadillac Championship, the tournament gets a new sponsor, new venue in a different country this year when it moves to Mexico City for the WGC - Mexico Championship, which will be televised live on the Golf Channel and NBC. The event gets underway March 2-5, 2017.
The tournament was played at Trump Doral since 1999 and the players loved it. I think the PGA Tour panicked after President Elect Donald Trump’s comments about Mexicans and moved too early. We guarantee the event does not stay in Mexico past this year and will return to the “Blue Monster” next year.
No one knows anything about the course so no one will have any advantage. Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City is the host course. We are concerned on how many top players will skip this event due to the location. Everyone would show up if it was at Trump Doral, but Mexico City, not so sure.
Defending champion Dustin Johnson gets to defend but, sadly not at Trump Doral. He will hopefully be joined by all the players in the top 50 of the Official World Rankings.
The biggest event of the year on both the PGA Tour and European Tour is this week in Mexico for the WGC - Mexico Championship.

Dustin Johnson moved from world No 1 to undisputed world No 1 at the WGC Mexico Championship. It was the first tournament the America had played on top of the rankings and one which confirmed he is fully deserving of the moniker.
His final-round 68 for a 14-under total was good enough to beat England's Tommy Fleetwood, but only after a couple of scares on the concluding holes.
Johnson looked to have repelled all the challengers when pulling two clear of Fleetwood and the brilliant young Spaniard John Rahm, who had been tied for the lead with three remaining. But Fleetwood holed a 40-footer on the 18th for a 66 and a 13-under total, leaving Johnson needing two pars.
Johnson made a fine up-and-down to save par on the 17th, but then left himself more work to do when driving into the bunker on the 18th. However, from 122 yards he nervelessly, and clinically, conjured to 20 feet. In that moment, Fleetwood’s fairytale ended.
