India's Shubhankar Sharma shines at World Golf Championships

One & Done: WGC-Mexico Championship

One & Done: WGC-Mexico Championship

The normally genteel game of golf was given the full football treatment by enthusiastic Mexican commentators during the first round of the WCG-Mexico Championship held at Chapultepec Golf Club just outside of Mexico City on Thursday.

Among a group one back at six under is reigning Tour Championship victor Xander Schauffele, who also went bogey-free.

"I've been swinging it pretty good the last two or three weeks".

Both Sharma and Paisley are winners in Europe already this year, Paisley claiming a maiden title at the South African Open while Sharma has stunned the golf world with victories at both the Joburg Open in December and the Maybank Championship in Malaysia last month. He put together a 7-under 64 on the Chapultepec Golf Club, which sits at an altitude of more than 7,600 feet above sea level.

However, two more bogeys on his back nine left him floundering at four over before late birdies at his 15th and 18th limited the damage.

"It's the biggest tournament I've played in by a long stretch", Paisley said.

Race to Dubai leader Shubhankar Sharma, playing in the final group, made it a three-way tie for second by nudging home a final-hole birdie after the weather delay, with Rafa Cabrera Bello and Kiradech Aphibarnrat in the group two off the pace. "To play as well as I did and shoot a great score against the world's best players and to be right up there, I'm just delighted". I didn't want to come here and just be happy to be part of it and make up the numbers.

Sharma, who like Paisley is making his first Tour start and at this point past year was plying his trade on the Asian Tour, had no such problems with his swing or Chapultepec and was a flawless 6-for-6 in scrambling on his way to a 65. 3, 4 and 5 in 4 over par to plunge down the leaderboard.

Among the other top players in the field this week are world number two Jon Rahm, who finished third here a year ago, and reigning Player of the Year Justin Thomas, fresh from his Sunday triumph at the Honda Open and showing no signs of slowing down.
