Oosthuizen leads WGC Mexico Championship

Oosthuizen leads WGC Mexico Championship

The WGC-Mexico Championship is being played in, er Mexico and the locals, who lets face it aren't synonymous with golf, gave the full football treatment when commentating on the first round from the Chapultepec Golf Club just outside of Mexico City on Thursday. "My golf game is in great shape", said a delighted Kiradech. He was in Oman and Qatar before coming over to Mexico, and fatigue was hardly an issue, even walking the hilly course at almost 7,800 feet above sea level.

"This week is all about distance control".

"I'm just playing really solid", Oosthuizen told Sky Sports.

"It's probably the worst I've ever felt over the ball in my life", Thomas said.

In case you missed the Mickelson magical mystery tour in Mexico previous year - or you just want to see them again (you should) - the PGA Tour has put together a wildly entertaining compilation of some of his best escapes from the week. He posted more bogeys (three) than birdies (two) for just his third over-par round (72) of the year and is tied for 39 in the 64-man field. "I've got a nice little cut going, and it's nice to be able to just aim left and swing away", Oosthuizen said.

He was one stroke in front of England's Chris Paisley and American Xander Schauffele, the US PGA Tour's 2017 Rookie of the year. He's had success already this season by winning the European Tour's BMW SA Open in January, so transitioning to the PGA Tour isn't likely to faze him.

Paisley opened with back-to-back birdies and added two more at the fifth and sixth, seizing a share of the lead on five-under with a birdie at the 10th, where he rolled in a 10-footer. It was a very, very tough putt, nearly two feet of break on that putt.

NJ weather calls for more rain; damp weekend continues

Bollywood mourns sudden demise of Sridevi
Boney Kapoor's brother, actor-turned-producer Sanjay Kapoor, told Indian Express: "Yes, it is true that Sridevi passed away ". Sridevi Kapoor , best known by her mononym Sridevi and a major Bollywood star, died Saturday night in UAE of cardiac arrest.

Yellow warning for snow in Crawley
Today, Friday, is expected to be mostly dry with a mix of cloud and sunny spells; the best of the sunshine is likely in the north. Some places, particularly along exposed coastal areas, will also see blustery conditions and wintry showers of sleet and hail.

"This is such a big event, I would say this is taking some pressure off me, playing well on this course".

Hot on his heels are a trio of players getting their first taste of World Golf Championship play. I was also really happy with the birdie I made on 18. "I like the course, it kind of suits my strengths". (It was) a bit of a scrappy finish with a few missed clubs and a poor shot on 17 but I held it together.

Schauffele had six birdies in his 65.

Right behind were two players unfamiliar to the world stage, though they sure didn't play like it.

The highlight was a near-ace at the 17th, his eighth hole of the day - where his tee shot spun within inches of the cup.

Jon Rahm birdied the last to complete a four-under 67, while one-time leader Bubba Watson slipped in to the group on two under after three bogeys and a double-bogey over his final seven holes.
