Rory Returns Along with DJ, Spieth, Fowler

The world’s best players are convening south of the border in Mexico City for the first World Golf Championship event of the season. The WGC Mexico Championship becomes the PGA Tour’s second stop in the country along with the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. With storylines abounding from the largest city in North America, the beginning of Thursday and Friday’s competition can be seen exclusively on PGA TOUR LIVE before the televised coverage.

The 77-man field features 49 of the top-50 players in the world with No. 2-ranked Jason Day as the only top player missing from the field (withdrew due to illness). However, nearly every other big name in the sport will be on hand with 12 of the most popular players in the world playing the early portion of their first two rounds on PGA TOUR LIVE.

On Thursday morning, the star-studded threesome of Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama starts the PGA TOUR LIVE coverage followed by Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia. On Friday, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson and Adam Scott kick off the streaming service’s coverage, followed by Justin Rose, Patrick Reed and Alexander Noren.
