2018 PGA Tour: WGC - Mexico ChampionshipMarch 01, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City will host the WGC - Mexico Championship. The four-day tournament will end Sunday, March 4. Total purse money is set at $10 million.

The main protagonist in this tournament is the altitude of the course. At nearly 8,000 feet above sea level, pick a club for the 65-man field can be a complicated task for four days. An above sea level golf course makes a ball to land farther than the expected distance. Choosing a driver or wood club could make or break a golfer's round.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson knows how to win in this course. But he knows it may be too tough to duplicate his last year's feat. Second place Tommy Fleetwood hopes to cash in this week as he tries to avenge his 1-shot loss against Dustin Johnson in last year's Mexico Championship.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Dustin Johnson as the man to beat on Sunday's last round of the WGC – Mexico Championship.
