Cameron Smith has further entrenched his status as one of the world’s best with a top-10 finish at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship in Mexico City.
No one in the field was able to keep pace with Dustin Johnson as he romped to a five-shot win, three bogeys on the front-9 putting Smith on the back foot early on Sunday.
Three birdies on the back-9 brought him back to 1-under on his round and a tie for 6th, his best performance in a WGC stroke play tournament having finished tied for 5th at the Dell Match Play last year.
Former Queensland amateur teammate Jake McLeod, who earned his start thanks to winning the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit, made a strong impression in his WGC debut with a tie for 45th while Ryan Fox’s mad dash from New Zealand after a late call-up may have caught up with him as he produced rounds of 75-76 on the weekend to be tied for 67th.
