Oosthuizen leads after day one of World Golf Championship in Mexico

This week, the Chandigarh man will be in Mexico City for his World Golf Championships (WGC) debut. He became the country's youngest worldwide victor in December 2017, when he outlasted the field at the Joburg Open in South Africa.

But that's not what wins the tournament. The Indian Open will be in town next week, with the country's leading players, including Sharma, defending champion S S P Chawrasia, Anirban Lahiri and Shiv Kapur, being joined by top internationals.

Dustin Johnson got the treatment when almost holing out on the par-3 17th, but it was Tony Finau's eagle on the sixth hole that got the full HOOOOOLE effect from the commentators. "And I didn't really have anywhere to miss it coming out of where I was".

In just his second PGA Tour start of the year, Oosthuizen ran off five birdies before landing a four-foot eagle at the par-five 15th, which plays more as a long par-four in the rarefied air more than 7,300 feet (2,225m) above sea level.

Justin Thomas is looking for back-to-back wins after a dramatic finale at the Honda Classic.

Thomas revised his assessment a few minutes later, only because he thought his 6-iron for a hole-in-one on the 223-yard 13th hole in the third round was pretty good.

Nine civilians killed in Saudi-led air strike attacks in Yemen
Saudi Arabia has been leading a mostly Arab military coalition to fight the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen since March 2015. The council then put to vote the Russian-drafted text, which won unanimous support of the 15 members of the council.

NOW TV doesn't even require a typical television to use, as it is also available on a NOW TV Box, Chromecast, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Roku, LG Smart TV, PC or Mac, and selected mobile and tablet devices.

"I can say now that I'm getting more experience. He had to catch it perfectly". "He said, 'I don't want that one back'". Malaysia's Gavin Green, the reigning Asian Tour No. 1, shot a 78.

But there's more to his game.

The players from 19 different countries will navigate the narrow, tree-lined Club de Golf Chapultepec as they vie for the title. He also performed well at this course previous year, placing seventh, four shots from winning. He obviously didn't make much on an impression then either. "Length really doesn't matter out here". What DJ did was control his distance and wedge play.

"My putting was really good", Paisley added. I couldn't have hit it in a better place.

He was the star attraction over the final two holes of his nine-hole practice round, mainly because of who was in his group.

Former NBA agent Dan Fegan killed in vehicle crash
On Sunday morning, Fegan's vehicle was reportedly trying to cross or merge onto Highway 82 when it was broadsided by the bus. The report of Fegan's death comes from Aspen, Colo. where early on Sunday morning Fegan's auto collided with a bus.

"I was super impressed how nice he was", she said.

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. U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka remains out with a wrist injury.

That means Johnson is virtually certain to stay No. 1 in the world.

"It's not a bad way at all (to finish). I'm trying hard, everything that I can do to get on this tour", said Kiradech.

"On the first hole it's just about hitting the right shot and positioning yourself".
