Oosthuizen grabs first-round lead at WGC Mexico Championship

Oosthuizen grabs first-round lead at WGC Mexico Championship

Instead, Thursday at Chapultepec Golf Club delivered a mixed bag of compelling, if not little-known, players and just as many out-of-character performances.

Fifth-place finishes at Abu Dhabi and Dubai saw him punch his ticket to his first elite World Golf Championships event at the Club de Golf Chapultepec.

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. The highlight was a near-ace at the 17th, his eighth hole of the day - where his tee shot spun within inches of the cup.

World No. 2 Jon Rahm of Spain is well within striking distance at 4-under after a round that featured six birdies and two bogeys. "To be up there playing so well and competing with guys like this is fantastic".

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.

Compliance to the cuts hit 133 per cent in January, which Mazrouei said exceeded the percentage required in the deal. Meanwhile, refinery maintenance in Europe has dampened demand for Brent, causing the two benchmarks to converge.

"My putting was really good", Paisley added.

Oosthuizen, who finished 24th in the Honda Classic last week after a disappointing final round of 75, said: "I've been hitting it really good for the last three or four weeks, two of those just practising back at Palm Beach and last week I felt I played really well and just caught up in the Bear Trap on Sunday".

"Had a nice little cut going with it, just aiming it a little left and just swing away".

Masters champion and countryman Sergio Garcia is a shot further back following his 68, while Rickie Fowler is also three under after he hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson came to the Club de Golf Chapultepec as the betting favorite to win his sixth career World Golf Championship title - and he very almost carded an ace on his eighth hole of the day.
