Oosthuizen leads after day one of World Golf Championship in Mexico

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson came to the Club de Golf Chapultepec as the betting favorite to win his sixth career World Golf Championship title - and he very almost carded an ace on his eighth hole of the day. The last six winners of this event, which moved to Mexico from Doral previous year, include Johnson (who has won twice), Adam Scott, Patrick Reed, Tiger Woods (a seven-time champion) and Rose. "The first 15 holes tee to green, I was really solid, hit a lot of fairways, a lot of greens".

Thai star Kiradech Aphibarnrat has declared himself "comfortable and confident" as he prepares to challenge for the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship which starts today. Oh, and he played college golf at Tennessee for four years. (It was) a bit of a scrappy finish with a few missed clubs and a poor shot on 17 but I held it together. "And I proved to myself that I can roll it, so I'll just do the same things that I've been doing", he said.

Sharma, playing in the last group, is now just one point behind leader Louis Oosthuizen.

Oosthuizen made a short eagle putt late in his round and birdies on two of the short par 4s for a 7-under 64.

"Hands down", he said when asked if it was one of the better shots of the tournament. If I'm playing well the first couple of weeks, I can get close to my tour card. "To play as well as I did and shoot a great score against the world's best players and to be right up there, I'm just delighted".
