Louie Oosthuizen is leading the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship after round one by 1 stroke.

Louie fired a -7 under par 64 with 5 birdies, one eagle, & 12 pars.

He was hitting the ball with authority today and admitted he came out this morning with a “little fade”.

He said he just aimed to the left and swung away. It is definitely a plus when you come to the range and the swing you brought that day holds up.

It could have been a draw just as easily as a fade, whatever shows up, that’s what you use that day.

Chris Paisley and Xander Schauffele are tied for second place at -6 under par.

Chris Paisley is not a very famous name on the tour but if he keeps up the pace he has started with this week he will have a wonderful career.

Schauffele is not exactly a household name but he has 2 PGA Tour wins and is sitting 36th in the FedEx Cup points race.

With only 38 starts on the PGA Tour he has over $5,000,000 in career earnings. Pretty amazing for a guy maybe only 1/2 of the golfers out there would even recognize his name.

What a great field we have this week in Mexico City. It’s like a who’s who in golf with Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose, Justin Thomas, etc.

I thought last week at the Honda Classic was star-studded, but this week we have just as many of the super stars.

Oosthuizen is coming off a good showing last week at the Honda Classic. He really enjoyed sleeping in his own bed and driving across the street to play the tournament.

I was feeling for Bubba Watson as he was -7 under at one point and then went bogey, and double bogey and finished in a t13 at -2 under par.

He will, as always, be a force to be reckoned with this week.

Play had to be halted because of lightning with a few left to finish play tomorrow. They will be out early and then everyone will go off just a little later than usual.
