Power Rankings: 2020 WGC-Mexico Championship

Rory Mc Ilroy needs a victory in the 2020 WGC-Mexico Championship to complete a Grand Slam

Dustin Johnson trails Rory McIlroy on WGC-Mexico Championship odds

Rory McIlroy will try to complete his collection of World Golf Championships (WGC) titles when he stares down a stacked field in Mexico City this week that includes defending champion Dustin Johnson.

Woods, victor of a record 18 World Golf Championships, had already chose to skip the $10.5 million event before he finished last of the players who made the cut in the Genesis Invitational, which he hosted, in Los Angeles at the weekend.

"I've been so busy with (the Genesis) and trying to deal with all the little things that I haven't really focused on next week", Woods said.

Australia's Adam Scott carries an extra boost of confidence into this week's WGC Mexico Championship after winning his second title in three months last weekend at Riviera.

The match also saw Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson being forced off through a hamstring injury in the 80th minute. He said: "Maybe they appreciate the fans more than the result, because the fans were top for them".


While others out of the overall picture might, shall we say, have a bit less inspiration during the weekend rounds, I expect Ortiz to be fully engaged no matter what, which should equate to a result easily within the top half of the field. I had a good chance to win in Mexico (last year), finished second.

Bubba Watson, meanwhile, is a 50/1 shot.

"It was pretty easy to put this back in and also the Match Play back on the schedule for this year and at least give myself an idea of where my game is sitting against the best players in the world a little more often". The American has top-10 finishes in two of his last three worldwide starts, has been near the top of the field in strokes gained: off-the-tee each of the last two weeks and could thrive with the extra mathematical element involved this week with calculating yardages in altitude.

It may seem slightly surprising to see Thomas as short as 10/1 given he missed the cut last week, failing to be involved in the final two days for the second time in three time starts, having missed the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii last month. Jude and has three other top-10 finishes, including ninth in Mexico previous year.

Scott plans a week off, then the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill and the Players Championship, then a week off before and after the WGC Match Play ahead of the Masters in April.

Tiger Woods was back to his best in 2019 with a stunning 15th major win at the US Masters, a record-equaling 82nd PGA Tour victory in Japan and then captaining the U.S. to glory in the Presidents Cup. In comparison to McIlroy this season, Johnson has just one other Top 10 finish, which came when he placed seventh in the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January. Scott has two prior World Golf Championships victories to his credit, with wins at the 2011 World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and 2016 World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship. I won the Australian PGA in December, and even in a amusing way, just hitting a few balls on the range, I felt more confident than I did even hitting balls on the range Sunday in Riviera.
