The 2017 WGC-Mexico Championship is a golf tournament scheduled for March 2–5 at Club de Golf Chapultepec in Naucalpan, State of Mexico: just west of Mexico City. It will be the 18th time the WGC Championship has been played, and the first of the World Golf Championships events to be staged in 2017.

The approximate elevation of the course’s clubhouse is 2,400 meters (7,870 ft) above sea level.

The WGC-Mexico Championship will welcome the top players from across the globe to compete in one of the most exciting events of the PGA TOUR season on February 28-March 5.

The Mexico Championship field is comprised of players from the top of season-ending standings on the PGA TOUR, European Tour, Asian Tour and other Tours across the globe as well as the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking and the money lists/Orders of Merit from the six main professional golf tours.

Each player is classified according to the first category in which he qualified, but other categories are shown in parentheses. Click here to see players’ list.

One of the most outstanding news regarding this event is the fact that Golf super-star Rory McIlroy will play his first “competitive” round of golf since January (coming back from an injury), and pronounced himself fit enough to resume his PGA Tour career next week at the WGC-Mexico Championship.
