WGC-Mexico Championship 2020: Thursday Tee times, Live Stream, TV Channel

Dustin Johnson will play alongside Francesco Molinari and Abraham Ancer in the first two rounds of the WGC-Mexico Championship this week.

The 35-year-old has won the tournament twice since it moved to the Club de Golf Chapultepec just outside Mexico City and begins the defense of his title at 12:39 p.m. ET on Thursday from tee No. 10.

Including last week's tied for 10th finish at the Genesis Invitational, Johnson has two top-10 finishes in his last three starts and arrives into the tournament as the second-favorite.

Dating back to 2019, Ancer has three top-10 finishes in the last five starts, including a fourth and a second place and will have the lion's share of support playing in front of his home crowd.

Molinari, meanwhile, arrives into the tournament in a woeful run of form. The 2018 Open Championship has missed the cut in each of his last three starts and will be hoping for a turnaround in fortunes this week.

The trio will be followed on the course by Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Gary Woodland at 12:51 p.m. ET.

A runner-up at Chapultepec last year, McIlroy is a 13/2 favorite this week and arrives in Mexico on the back of five straight top-five finishes at the PGA Tour.

Fleetwood, meanwhile, makes his first appearance across the Atlantic in over six months after winning the Nedbank Golf Championship in South Africa in November and finishing second and 11th at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship last month.

Woodland, meanwhile, has finished in the top-10 four times in his last six starts.

World No. 10 Xander Schaeuffele also begins his tournament from tee No. 10 alongside Kevin Kisner and Paul Casey, while 2018 Masters winner Patrick Reed will be on the course after the group containing McIlroy.

Over on tee No. 1, Tyrell Hatton, Scott Hend and Byeong Hun An kick off proceedings at 12:03 p.m. ET, followed by a group containing Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen and Ryo Ishikawa.

Fresh from his triumph at the Genesis Invitational last week, Adam Scott makes his first appearance at the WGC-Mexico Championship since 2017.

The Australian will play the first two rounds alongside Carlos Artiz and world No. 3 Jon Rahm, with the trio getting underway from tee No. 1 at 2:03 p.m. ET on Thursday.
