The WGC - Mexico Championship is a professional golf tournament, one of the four annual World Golf Championships. It is sanctioned and organized by the International Federation of PGA Tours and the prize money is official money on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. From 1999 through 2006, it was known as the WGC-American Express Championship. In 1999 and 2000 it was held in November, before moving to September/October. Since the start of the FedEx Cup in 2007, the event has been played in March. From 2007 to 2010, it was known as the WGC-CA Championship. After the 2010 event, CA Inc. announced the termination of their sponsorship of the tournament.

“Since the debut of the World Golf Championships in 1999, the intent has always been to conduct these tournaments around the world,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem. “Once it became apparent that we would not be able to secure sponsorship at levels that would sustain the event and help it grow at Trump National Doral, we began having serious discussions with Ricardo and Benjamin Salinas, who expressed strong interest in bringing a tournament to Mexico City to benefit golf and its development throughout Mexico. We are very excited about this new opportunity and what it brings to the World Golf Championships.”

From 1999 through 2006 it was known as the WGC-American Express Championship and was held during October. From 2007 to 2010, it was known as the WGC-CA Championship.

One of three World Golf Championships events, the CA Championship will feature the top-30 players from the final FedExCup point standings, the top-50 players from the Official World Golf Ranking the week prior and the week of the event, the top-10 players from the FedExCup point standings the week prior and the week of the event, along with leaders of the Official Money Lists/Orders of Merit from the European Tour, Australasian Tour, Japan Golf Tour, Asian Tour and Sunshine Tour.

Doral Blue Monster Info

Doral is called the Blue Monster because when it first was built back in 1960, people said that Alfred Kaskel was creating a “monster” in the middle of a swamp. When the course opened, it was known as the “Blue” course. With its swirling winds, water hazards and tough play, it soon became known as the “Blue Monster.”

The Blue Monster was designed by Dick Wilson design and later reworked by Raymond Floyd, the Blue Monster has been hosting PGA Tour events for more than 40 years. The 7,125-yard course is known for its long fairways, undulating greens, thick rough and strategic bunkers.

With its frequent star turns on television, the Blue Monster overshadows its Doral siblings, the Gold, Red, Silver and Great White courses. While all offer excellent golf, only the Great White, named for designer Greg Norman, is mentioned in the same breath as the Blue. Also topping 7,000 yards, its difficulty wins fans and detractors in equal number.

With this new criteria, the CA Championship can already boast that defending champion Tiger Woods, the 2007 FedExCup champion and a six-time winner of the CA Championship, has qualified for the event, as has Steve Stricker (No. 2 in FedExCup Points), Phil Mickelson (3), Rory Sabbatini (4), K.J. Choi (5), Aaron Baddeley (6), 2007 Masters Champion Zach Johnson (7), Mark Calcavecchia (8), Sergio Garcia (9) and Vijay Singh (10).

Some of golf's best players have emerged victorious during the tournament's six-year history. Tiger Woods counts four victories in this tournament among his 12 World Golf Championships titles. He won the inaugural event in 1999 at Valderrama in Spain and followed that up with victories in 2002 in Ireland and 2003 and 2005 in the United States. In 2000, Canadian Mike Weir captured the title, and in 2004, Ernie Els of South Africa triumphed.

The World Golf Championships were developed to enhance the competitive structure of professional golf worldwide while preserving the traditions and strengths of the individual tours and their events.

The Asian PGA joined the International Federation of PGA Tours as a full-fledged member in November 1999. In March 2000, the Canadian Tour was added as an Associate Member. The World Golf Championships have been conducted on five different continents.
