Top Picks for the 2020 WGC Mexico Championship

1. Dustin Johnson

The reigning WGC Mexico champion, Johnson won two of three tournaments held at Club de Golf Chapultepec.

The current world number 5 has only made three appearances this year.

DJ posted a best finish of seventh, with his other two results being a T32 at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am and a T11 at last week’s Genesis Invitational.

Johnson had a very good 2019 season, winning the WGC event while also finishing runner-up at the Masters Tournament and at the PGA Championship.

A six-time WGC winner, he now leads all of this year’s participants following Tiger Woods’ withdrawal.

Johnson’s phenomenal WGC record and his dominance at the course could lead him to another win this week.

2. Rory McIlroy

The current world number 1 is once again performing at the top of his game.

McIlroy has yet to finish outside the top 5 in the 2019-20 season, having made four PGA Tour appearances and five overall.

The Northern Irishman is coming off a T5 result at the Genesis Invitational, his second event of the year.

McIlroy finished runner-up to Dustin Johnson by 5 strokes last year at the WGC Championship Mexico, having led the first two rounds.

He won a WGC event last year for the first time since 2015 and closed out the season with his first PGA Championship title.

McIlroy is the best player in the world at the moment and could improve on his 2019 result to add a fourth WGC title.

3. Justin Thomas

Thomas finished the three editions of the WGC Championship Mexico inside the top 10.

The American lost a playoff versus Phil Mickelson in 2018, scored a T5 result in 2017 and a T9 last year.

The current FedEx Cup points leader, Thomas is having a stellar 2019-20 season.

He has made seven appearances in the 2019-20 PGA Tour, scoring two wins and four top 10 finishes.

While JT missed out on the cut in two of his four tournament appearances this year, he made up for it by winning the Tournament of Champions.

His other result in 2020 was a T3 finish at the Phoenix Open.

4. Kiradech Aphibarnrat

If you are looking for a longshot, the Thai player could be your pick.

Aphibarnrat scored a T5 result in 2018 and followed it up with a career-best PGA Tour T3 finish last year.

The WGC Championship Mexico course seems to be his favorite.

Aphibarnrat managed to stay close to the leaders in the last two years throughout the event.

He was ten strokes off Dustin Johnson’s record-setting title last year, and only three off Phil Mickelson and Justin Thomas in 2018.

As far as longshot picks go, Aphibarnrat could be this week’s sleeper.
