Dustin Johnson celebrates with the trophy after winning the WGC Mexico Championship

  • Dustin Johnson took home the title at the WGC-Mexico Championship on Sunday
  • The American closed with a final round of 66 for a 21 under par total of 263
  • That score saw him beat runner-up Rory McIlroy by a margin of five strokes
  • Paul Casey, Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Ian Poulter shared third place

Justin Rose’s lead at the top of the world rankings is now literally down to a fraction of a single point following victory for the resurgent Dustin Johnson over Rory McIlroy in the WGC-Mexico Championship on Sunday.

The American won by a margin of five strokes over the Northern Irishman after closing with a 66 for a 21 under par total of 263. Runner-up McIlroy shot an impressive 67 of his own for his fourth straight top five finish from four starts this season.

It says much for how this pair dominated that McIlroy finished five shots ahead of the trio who shared third place – Paul Casey, who shot 65, Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat and another Englishman Ian Poulter, who continued his strong start to the season with a 68.
