WGC-Mexico Championship odds 2018: Picks from same model that nailed Tommy Fleetwood's deep run

Sharma intends to keep his foot on the pedal despite being in his first WGC tournament which is featuring 45 of the world's top-five players this week. Chris Paisley of England and Shubhankar Sharma of India were one behind, along with Xander Schauffele. "The way I hit it, I probably should not have shot 2 under".

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".

"I had some really good holes, I had some really bad holes".

Despite missing the cut by one stroke in Oman and Qatar over the past fortnight, Sharma produced a flawless display which his caddie Gurbaaz Mann, a former Asian Tour player himself, described as "complete". "So I was very happy with the way I drove the ball", he said.

While Oosthuizen is a veteran of the PGA and European Tours, Paisley is making his first career start on the PGA Tour. "You're always very happy when you start with such a low round, especially for me".

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.

Schauffele had six birdies in his 65.

Russian Federation strengthened the grouping in Syria with the latest Su-57

Missing from that United Nations lineup was world No. 1 and defending champion Dustin Johnson, No. 3 and the PGA Tour's most recent victor Justin Thomas, No. 4 Jordan Spieth and No. 5 Justin Rose.

"I was struggling with it on Monday and put in some work the last two days".

Johnson, Rahm and Thomas, who have been grouped together for the opening two rounds, will tee off on Thursday from the 10th tee at 12:51 ET (1751 GMT).

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.

Still chasing her first LPGA win eight years after turning professional, Song took the outright lead when she made five birdies in an eight-hole stretch.

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.
