How to watch WGC in Mexico online and on TV

"I was struggling with it on Monday and put in some work the last two days". If I'm playing well the first couple of weeks, I can get close to my tour card. "I hit the ball OK under pressure with him, and the group and the gallery". The WGC events, a notch below the majors, attract the world's best players, and Sharma will be eager to prove he belongs in their company when he tees off at the $10 million WGC-Mexico Championship.

Louis Oosthuizen shot a 7-under 64 to take the first-round lead at the Mexico Championship on Thursday. "I think I maybe caught myself out a bit on the last few holes, maybe got a little bit ahead of myself and realised where I was".

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.

To be fair, Oosthuizen is hardly a journeyman and he's certainly comfortable on the biggest stages (see Open Championship, 2010); and Rahm, who finished third here a year ago in his debut and can overtake Johnson this week as world No. 1 depending on a variety of scenarios, has emerged as a bona fide world-beater.

Sharma said he consistently found the fairways during the round and is happy with his drive.

These days, he does employ the grip it-and-rip it approach all the time, which previously earned him the nickname "Asia's John Daly". "Even after the rain (lightning) delay that we had, just to make birdie on the last hole (on nine), absolutely fantastic", said a delighted Sharma.

"I was super impressed how nice he was", she said. "If it was 2014 or 2013, I want to whack every single drive on this golf course for sure", he said.

Watch the WGC-Mexico Championship throughout the week live on Sky Sports. Shubhankar Sharma, 21, goes into the Hero Indian Open, the country's marquee golf event, as out-and-out favourite.

Ten players, including Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and defending champion Dustin Johnson, are five back of the lead at 2-under. His highest finish in a WGC event is 4th.

If only we could have been a little more clinical when we went forward - we got in some really good positions. On the win over West Ham, the Senegal attacker said: "I think the whole team played well".
