  • Dustin Johnson putted for birdie on every hole during an impeccable day of ball-striking

It was Johnson's 20th PGA Tour victory, his sixth World Golf Championship title and his 22nd win as a pro.

McIlroy fired a final-round 67 to end the week on 16 under at Chapultepec Golf Club, five strokes back from eventual victor Dustin Johnson. The lead was back to four after the sixth hole as McIlroy drove his tee shot behind a tree, was not allowed a free drop, and made bogey as Johnson canned a 9-footer for birdie. He asked for relief and was denied.

McIlroy did all he could, making six birdies in a seven-hole stretch on the back nine, and closed with a 67.

Johnson had six birdies on Sunday along with a bogey, his first of the week though he did have a double-bogey in the third round, while carding a 5-under 66 on Sunday as he was never seriously threatened after sleeping on a four-shot lead. This tournament sported the best field assembled this year on the PGA Tour, but Johnson was far and away the top player this week. Johnson made sure of that as he made five birdies on his closing nine.

Reigning Masters champion Patrick Reed shot a final round 73 while playing in the final group.

"There are a lot of great players behind me and I am going to have to go out and shoot a great score if I want to win", Johnson said. He won the championship two years ago when the tournament moved here, and he finished in a tie for seventh last year.

The pair finished well clear of the rest of the pack, with McIlroy five shots ahead of a three-way share of third place, split between English duo Paul Casey and Ian Poulter, and Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Earlier this month Johnson won the inaugural Saudi International on the European Tour by two strokes from China's Li Haotong.

"I hung in there because I didn't hit the ball as well as I did the first couple of days", McIlroy explained. These green here are pretty tricky and I keep giving myself opportunities to make birdies.

"I definitely wanted to get to that 20 number", he said. "I was taking a stance that was hitting it one way, and my foot was on it".

Tiger Woods has won more major championships than anyone other than Jack Nicklaus but his putting went badly awry during the third round of the WGC-Mexico Championship on Saturday.

PGA TOUR: In Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, Martin Trainer closed with a 5-under 67 to win the Puerto Rico Open for his first PGA Tour title, a three-stroke victory over four players. "The putts I thought I hit well didn't go in", he later told GolfTV, with which he has a financial arrangement.
