The WGC-Mexico 2019 championship kicks off Thursday at the Chapultepec Golf Club, just outside of Mexico, and Tiger Woods will be on the pitch for the first time since the start of the tournament in Mexico two years ago. This will be Woods' third start for the 2018-19 PGA Tour season and the second of four WGC events this season. Woods wins the final match of the WGC-Mexico 2019 Championship at 18-1, while last week's Genesis Open finalist, Justin Thomas, is the 9-1 favorite. Then there's Xander Schauffele, who won the WGC-HSBC champions last October in the playoffs and is 20-1 this week. The starting times of the WGC-Mexico 2019 Championship start at 12:03. Thursday, holes 1 and 10. Before making your choice at the WGC-Mexico 2019 Championship or participating in a DFS PGA tournament or cash game on sites such as DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the PGA predictions proven SportsLine computer model.
SportsLine's prediction model, built by DFS professional Mike McClure, has allowed four of the last eight major teams to engage in the weekend and has called Tiger Woods' deep race into the PGA Championship. despite a long shot of 25-1. The model was developed early in the 2018-19 season. Champion Rickie Fowler at the 2019 Phoenix Open was one of the best, and he was already among the top six candidates since the start. He also correctly predicted the victory of Brooks Koepka (9-1) in the CJ Cup earlier this season. In addition, he correctly called the victory of Bryson DeChambeau (9-1) on seven shots at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. All who followed the model are huge.
Now that the championship for the WCC-Mexico 2019 Championship is locked, SportsLine has simulated the event 10,000 times and the results have been surprising. The model calls for a shock: Woods, seven times winner of this event, does not even appear in the top 10.
Woods is only making his second start at a world golf championship since 2014. Last season, he finished 31st at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. And despite winning this tournament on seven different occasions, Woods makes his first competitive start to Mexico.
This does not bode well for Woods, who will play a course over 8,000 feet above sea level. The significant change in altitude will cause players to be precise with their drives out of the tee, an area where Woods had a hard time struggling violently last season. In fact, Woods finished 127th in the PGA Tour last season in driving accuracy percentage (59.35). There are much better values to have in this busy field of the WGC-Mexico 2019 Championship.
Another surprise: Schauffele, a long shot 20-1, achieved a strong performance in the title. It is a target for those looking for a big salary.
Schauffele already has two victories on the PGA Tour this season, winning the first WGC event in October and then winning the Sentry Champions Tournament in Hawaii earlier this year. His official world golf ranking has risen to 7th place and he is leading the FedEx Cup standings, ahead of Matt Kuchar, the only other double winner of the tour so far this season.
A four-time PGA Tour winner and PGA Tour rookie of the year in 2017, he finished 18th in his first WGC-Mexico Championship appearance last season. He has had success at the Chapultepec Golf Club, which should allow him to play well. has been recently. Schauffele is the third in the PGA Tour in total strokes won at 2,363 per lap. Look for him at the top of the WGC-Mexico 2019 ranking throughout the week or so.
In addition, the model says that three other golfers with a score of 18-1 or higher at the WGC-Mexico 2019 Championship won a strong performance in the title. Anyone who supports these outsiders could hit hard.
