This week many of the top golfers in the world will be headed to Club de Golf Chapultepec, Mexico City, Mexico, for the annual WGC-Mexico Championship, formely WGC-CA Championship. The top PGA players in the world will take on Doral’s infamous Blue Monster Course this March, gunning for one of the top titles in golf.
This is a great tune up for the Masters, as the competition is about as good as it gets. One of three World Golf Championship events, the CA Championship is a highlight of the annual PGA Tour calendar.
The Cadillac Championship is the second of the three World Golf Championship events, previously known as the American Express Championship, CA Championship but now known as the Cadillac Championship. The World Golf Championships events feature players from around the world competing against one another in varied formats (match play, stroke and team).
The WGC CA Championship debuted as part of the World Golf Championships series in 1999. The tournament originally rotated with many different venues since it’s inception, including Spain, Republic of Ireland and England. Sence 2007 it has been permanently housed at the Doral Country Club in Doral, Fla., and has replaced that site’s previous event, the Doral Open, on the PGA Tour schedule.
The CA Championship is a limited-field event with entry determined mostly by money list ranking, but also by FedEx Cup points and World Ranking points. There is no 36 hole cut in this event because there are only roughly 70 players in the event, as opposed to 144 in normal PGA events.
