Conquering the World in Mexico City

Chuah Choo Chiang predicts who can be the next Asian winner at the first World Golf Championship tournament of 2018, the WGC-Mexico Championship in early March

Aphibarnrat Kiradech, Asia’s No. 1 in 2013, is keen to lift his game a notch higher and improve on his WGC record

Kiradech, Asia’s No. 1 in 2013, is keen to lift his game a notch higher, which means improving on his WGC record and ultimately playing his way onto the PGA TOUR. In eleven starts, Kiradech’s best is a T18 at the 2016 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, and he hopes his appearance at the WGC-Mexico Championship will see a breakthrough.

“It is fun to have the opportunity to play in big tournaments. Being the first World Golf Championships event of the year, I will be very motivated to produce a strong performance in Mexico, and hopefully, I can challenge for the title,” said Kiradech, who made a welcome return into the world’s top-50 following five top-10 finishes at the end of last year.

All eyes will surely be on Kiradech, Li and Green as they attempt to follow in Matsuyama’s footsteps and conquer the world in Mexico City. The golfing world awaits with bated breath.

Chuah Choo Chiang is the Senior Director, Communications of PGA TOUR and based in TPC Kuala Lumpur.
