Update: Dustin Johnson won the WGC Mexico on Sunday at -14 under par. Amateur player at the 2016 U.S. Open, John Rahm Rodriguez from Spain had a close encounter with the cup finishing at -12 under par.
You may recall that in June of 2016 the PGA Tour announced it would pull the World Golf Championships from the Trump-owned Doral Country Club in Miami to the Club Chapultepec in Mexico City. The move was sealed when Mexico’s Grupo Salinas, a collection of companies involved in retail, television, and telecommunications, agreed to a seven-year Title Sponsor commitment through 2023. The tournament was renamed the World Golf Championships – Mexico Championship.
“With this great championship, Mexico is recognized as a major player in golf,” said Benjamin Salinas, CEO of TV Azteca. “We have some of the best golf courses in the world, and we’ll have the top 50 golfers playing here. We welcome all sponsors, golfers, and audiences – to turn their eyes towards Mexico and discover the vast opportunities it offers to the international community.”
