Oosthuizen holds early WGC Mexico lead

Paul Dunne is the sole Irish competitor in Mexico

"The first 15 holes tee to green, I was really solid, hit a lot of fairways, a lot of greens". He put together a 7-under 64 on the Chapultepec Golf Club, which sits at an altitude of more than 7,600 feet above sea level.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson emerged from a roller-coaster round with a two-under 69.

Paisley's himself praised this new rising star Cameron Paisley. The Englishman, who began this year ranked 289 in the world and is playing his first WGC and first PGA Tour event this week, ranks 35 in the field in driving distance.

Ireland's Paul Dunne booked a place in the tournament by way of his top-20 finish in last year's Race to Dubai but all did not go to plan for the Greystones man on the opening day as he could only manage a round of 73 to finish at two over par, nine shots off the lead held by Louis Oosthuizen at seven under.

"To shoot a great score against the world's best players, I'm delighted".

Last week's Honda Classic victor, Justin Thomas, never found his rhythm in the opening round and signed for a 1-over 72to be T39.

Pakistan's ruling PML-N appoints Shahbaz Sharif as new chief
While speaking to the media, Kaira said Shehbaz was on good terms with the bureaucracy but had been disrespectful towards PPP. Nawaz has already nominated Shahbaz for the prime minister candidate if PML-N wins this year's general elections.

Oosthuizen took advantage and moved ahead by holing a five-foot eagle at the 15th, with Schauffele birdieing two of his last four holes to close a blemish-free card and join Paisley on six under.

"It's probably the worst I've ever felt over the ball in my life". "I really kind of started on Tuesday, wasn't swinging it very well, and then yesterday I just was hitting it bad".

The Tour posted a tweet featuring a certain Cameron Paisley who wasn't listed on the start sheet but it was subsequently deleted.

Both Sharma and Paisley are winners in Europe already this year, Paisley claiming a maiden title at the South African Open while Sharma has stunned the golf world with victories at both the Joburg Open in December and the Maybank Championship in Malaysia last month.

The billboards around Chapultepec understandably include the likes of Johnson, Spieth, Fowler and Thomas.

But then, while it might be billboards that sell tickets and generate interest, it's the names on the leaderboard that count once the competition has started, whether that lineup includes a superstar cast or not.
