Louis Leads In Mexico

Louis Leads In Mexicoā€¯

The first of the year's World Golf Championships is living up to its billing with six nations represented in the top 12 players.

Rising Indian golfer Shubhankar Sharma savoured a dream debut at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship as he fired a sizzling six-under 65 to grab the tied second place after the opening round. (It was) a bit of a scrappy finish with a few missed clubs and a poor shot on 17 but I held it together.

"I'm very confident with my driver at the moment", Oosthuizen said. Some hole you have to hit in the middle of the greens because it's really hard to adjust. "I really kind of started on Tuesday, wasn't swinging it very well, and then yesterday I just was hitting it bad".

Oosthuizen is a well known name on the PGA Tour, but he only owns one tour win at the Open Championship in 2010.

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. "I would say this is taking some pressure off me, playing well on this course".

Paisley shared second place with Tour Championship victor Xander Schauffele, with Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello and Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat on five under.

World number one and defending champion Dustin Johnson nearly brought the house down during his first-round 69.

"It's probably the worst I've ever felt over the ball in my life".

Justin Thomas didn't carry over his best form from last week's playoff victory at the Honda Classic. And only his remarkable recovery skills kept him anywhere near the leader board. "So I was very happy with the way I drove the ball", he said.

He played with Johnson and Jon Rahm, who also had enough mistakes to limit him to a 67.

Oosthuizen took advantage and moved ahead by holing a five-foot eagle at the 15th, with Schauffele birdieing two of his last four holes to close a blemish-free card and join Paisley on six under.

The 28-year-old American reeled off seven birdies at the Sentosa Golf Club in a round that was interrupted for two hours by lightning.

TSHWANE OPEN: In Pretoria, South Africa, Louis de Jager's strong finish gave him a one-shot lead after the first round of the Tshwane Open.
