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.

My tips to Win:

Three Top 3 finishes including a runner-up at the weekend should see Justin Thomas 10/1 – with SportingBet – in confident but determined mood this week. Justin lost out to Phil Mickelson in a play-off in this event last year and he also had a Top 5 the first year it was played at the Chapultepec GC in Mexico. The course obviously suits Thomas’s eye and I expect him to be right in the thick of it again come Sunday.

Another Top 5 at the weekend saw Rory McIlroy 12/1 – with SkyBet – make it three out of three for Top 5 finishes on the PGA Tour this year. Rory has won two of the four WGC events and this is one of the titles he hasn’t lifted and he will be looking to setting that record straight this week.

I am going to stick with Phil Mickelson 28/1 – with BetFred – again this week, after winning at the Pebble Beach ProAm he put in another great performance at the Genesis Open and as he is the defending champion this week and with his golf game is in great shape, I expect him to put up a spirited defence of his title.

Each-way tips:

In his four starts on the PGA Tours wraparound season Webb Simpson 40/1 – with SportingBet – has not been outside the Top 20 and has third place finish in that run. Webb played in this event for the first time last year and didn’t challenge, but now he knows the course I expect him to be in the thick of it again this week.

With two wins and another Top 5 from seven starts on the PGA Tours wraparound season Matt Kuchar 55/1 – with MarathonBet – is in great form and although he hasn’t challenged in his last two events he has still made the Top 30. With one of those events being the Pebble Beach ProAm and the other being the Genesis Open which was basically washed out and stop/start for the four days, I think being back into a normal routine will see Kuchar back challenging.

Outside Tip:

Tyrrell Hatton’s 70/1 – with RoyalPanda – golf game isn’t in a great place at the moment, but he is one of those players where everything can suddenly click into gear like it did for him last year during this event when he finished in third place. Tyrrell missed the cut coming into this tournament last year and he missed the cut at the weekend, but I think being back here and knowing how well he has played over this track before, will be the positive vibes he needs to get his year back on track.

Longer odds:

Try Kiradech Aphibarnrat 200/1 – with UniBet

As always good luck
