Beginning the final round one shot back of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas, World No. 1 Dustin Johnson fashioned a 3-under-par 68 to win the inaugural World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship with a 72-hole total of 14-under 270, one better than Tommy Fleetwood and two clear of Ross Fisher and Jon Rahm. It’s his fourth WGC title in 28 tries. After opening in 70-66-66, the South Carolinian began in solo 2nd, and played out of the final threesome with Thomas, who shot 72, and 36-hole leader Rory McIlroy (71). He went out in 4-under, birdieing Nos. 2, 6, 8 (from 29’1″) and 9, surging to a 4-shot lead. Johnson would relinquish the lead after back-to-back bogeys at 12 and 13, but played his final five holes blemish free, circling an up-and-down birdie-4 at 15. For the week, he carded one eagle and 22 birdies against eight bogeys and one double.

 

First-round co-leader and World No. 38 Jon Rahm crafted a 3-under-par 68 yesterday to finish up his tourney and WGC debut on 12-under 272, up two places into a two-way T3, two shy of champion Dustin Johnson. After opening in 67-70-67, the 22-year-old began in two-way T5 on 9-under, three back of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas. That’s the same final-round deficit he faced at the Farmers, erasing it with 7-under 65 to win by three. The Spaniard conjured just five (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation.

 

First-round co-leader and World No. 23 Phil Mickelson shot an even-par 71 in yesterday’s final round for a four-day total of 10-under 274, down four places into a three-way T7. After beginning in 67-68-68, the 46-year-old began in a two-way T3 on 10-under, two adrift of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas, one back of Johnson. He found nine (of 14) fairways but just seven greens in regulation. A very respectable tournament for Lefty and a surprise to me. Thought the altitude adjust might get to him early but I was wrong. He’s peaking at the right time getting ready for the Masters.
