It’s the first of this years WGC events, which is being held in Mexico. I think it’s a great development and feel the WGC tournaments should move around the world a lot more than they currently do, with one being played on each continent to truly make them world golf events.

This week’s host is the Club de Golf Chapultepec, which is located just 10-miles from downtown Mexico City. Willie Smith a Scotsman who won the US Open Championship in 1899 designed the course that opened for play in 1921 and hosted the Mexican Open Championship 14-times between its inception in 1944 up until 1960.

Unfortunately Willie died of pneumonia in 1916 before the course was completed, fortunately another US Open Champion was on hand to take up the reins, Alex Smith – Willies brother – who won the US Open twice in 1906 and 1910 completed his brothers vision of a tight tree lined design. The course was completely redesigned by Percy Clifford in 1972, leaving little trace of its original layout.

There could certainly be some fireworks at the start of the rounds this weekend and especially for any challengers to the lead who want to get off to a quick start. The first is hole is a driveable par-4, while the final hole is just 388-yards played uphill and when you add in the altitude – the course its at 2.370 km altitude above sea level – both will surely make their mark on the tournament come Sunday.

Other highlights on the front nine include the long par four 4th that plays downhill and doglegs left, and the uphill par five 6th. The uphill 15th starts to bring the course to a fitting crescendo and along with the 16th and 17th offer a stern test before what will be a risk and reward 18th.

Most of the players wouldn’t have played this weeks course, so it will be slightly unknown to all of them and I feel this week it will come down to pure form.

My tips to win:

No one is more in form coming into this week than the new world number one Dustin Johnson 7/1 – with BetVictor – who moved into the top spot after winning the Genesis Open two weeks ago. And with two other Top 6 finishes from his four starts this year on the PGA Tour and a runner-up finish in Abu Dhabi on the European Tour, he will be the man to beat this week.

Another player in form is Henrik Stenson 16/1 – with 32Red – who had two runner-up finishes at the backend of last year and had another in his second tournament of the year on the European Tour in Dubai, which followed a Top 10 finish in his first event of the year in Abu Dhabi. Henrik’s game looked solid in those two events and will be pressing the world number one all the way this week.

Justin Rose 22/1 – with Bet365 – has had a great start to this year with three Top 5 finishes from his four starts on the PGA Tour and all parts of his game look to be in great shape. Justin – like a number of the top players – will be looking to add to his solitary major championship and with The Masters coming sharply into focus he will be pushing hard come Sunday to put himself in the thick of the cauldron to test his nerves.

My each-way tips:

One player that seems to thrive in the thick of the battle is Jon Rahm 33/1 – with Coral – who has only been outside the Top 16 twice in eight starts on the PGA Tour – one of those starts was at the World Cup of Golf. Jon has a win and two other Top 10s in that run and he will be relishing this week and I think he will be in one of the final pairings come Sunday

I tipped Louis Oosthuizen 55/1 – with BetBright – several years ago to win The Masters when the South African lost out in the play-off to Bubba Watson and I think this maybe his year to finally get his hands on one of those green jackets. Louis has played steady golf so far this year but did have a Top 5 finishes at the Phoenix Open and the World Super 6 on the European Tour and I feel he is not far away from being back to his best.

My outside tips:

There are a couple of great outside bets this week, first is Bill Haas 80/1 – with 888Sport – and the reason I have put him in here is because his father Jay has actually won on this course and I know they have both won on several of the same courses and it wouldn’t surprise if that is an extra spur this week for the North Carolinian. I feel last week was a blip for Thomas Pieters 80/1 – with Bwin – and think these are great odds for the Belgium. Lastly if he has recovered and isn’t feeling embarrassed with his behaviour from nearly killing half a dozen spectators is Pat Perez 100/1 – with Ladbrokes – who sits in the Top 5 on the FedEx rankings and has a win and three other Top 7s on the wraparound season.
As always good luck
