Major victor Louis Oosthuizen enjoyed his lowest round at a World Golf Championships event after earning a one-stroke lead following day one of the WGC-Mexico Championship. He posted more bogeys (three) than birdies (two) for just his third over-par round (72) of the year and is tied for 39 in the 64-man field. Chris Paisley of England and Shubhankar Sharma of India were one behind, along with Xander Schauffele.
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.

Johnson, 33, has enjoyed plenty of success at WGC events and first won this tournament in 2015, when it was held at Trump National Doral in Miami. "I really kind of started on Tuesday, wasn't swinging it very well, and then yesterday I just was hitting it terrible".
But for him to defend his title, he will have to fight off every top 50 player except for Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama, Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, and Brooks Koepka, making it as deep a field as one will find ahead of the Masters.
Hot on his heels are a trio of players getting their first taste of World Golf Championship play.
