The WGC-CA Championships in Miami, which begins on March 8, will feature three Irish players with Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington and Graeme McDowell in the field.

The three men will play the Blue Monster Course at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa along with the rest of the world’s top 50 ranked players.

This week’s rankings see McIlory ranked 9th, Harrington one behind in 10th and McDowell just about making the field in 49th position.

Despite his absence, Tiger Woods retains the World No.1 spot, followed by Steve Stricker and Phil Mickelson.
