With an absolutely loaded field for the WGC-Mexico Championship that includes Tiger Woods making his third start of 2019, and his first start in back-to-back weeks, it has all the elements to be an incredibly exciting tournament.
Let's take a look at some guys to watch for your fantasy team this week.
Thomas has started off 2019 on fire after finishing second in last week's Genesis Open at Riviera. In his only other start in Mexico, Thomas finished T-5. He currently sits in sixth place in the FedEx Cup Standings as he looks to put up another great performance this week.
DeChambeau is another player who has really been on fire over the last few months, dating all the way back to Fall 2018. Before finishing 15th at the Genesis Open at Riviera last week, he was on a streak of four worldwide Top-10s. With the scientific way he prepares for the game, taking absolutely everything into account, there is no one better prepared on tour to properly adjust to the high altitude these players will have to endure this week.
Woods is playing in his third event and first back-to-back event of the year. He has improved between every event, going from a T-20 finish at the Farmers Insurance Open, to T-15 finish at the Genesis Open. And he did all of this with poor putting. In fact, according to Tiger himself, he's never put worse in his career, after seeing six 3-putts at Riviera. If Tiger can get his putting back on track, he'll be very dangerous because the majority of his game has been exceptional thus far.
Fleetwood has historically performed well south of the border. In his two Mexico City events, Fleetwood has notched a solo second-place finish at this event in 2017 and a T-14 finish. He currently ranks 23rd in scoring average on tour this season and, with his history at this course and this event, he should be in a position to improve on that atop of the leaderboard once again this year.
