For the first time in his illustrious career, Tiger Woods is playing in Mexico this week at the WGC-Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City.

This is Woods’ first time playing in back-to-back events this PGA Tour season. Battling the elements and a wacky schedule that forced the field to play 72 holes in three days, Woods finished last week’s Genesis Open T-15 after a disappointing 1-over 72 in the final round.

Amid a loaded field of the Tour’s biggest names, Woods tees off at 2:03 p.m. ET alongside good friend Bryson DeChambeau and Abraham Ancer, who just signed a new endorsement deal. a no-cut event, Woods is guaranteed to play all four days this weekend (unless he withdraws).

Follow all the action on our live blog and below for shot-by-shot analysis of Woods’ opening round.

Hole 1: Par 4, 309 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:13 p.m.): The numbers off the tee are going to be crazy this week due to the altitude, so don’t be surprised to see the Big Cat driving a green or two. After an ELECTRIC introduction, Tiger clubbed down with a fairway metal off the tee and lost it to the left. He then hit a provisional with the same club, and this one went just about as far left. Yikes.

Pre-Round

While this is Woods’ first time playing in Mexico, he’s no stranger to World Golf Championship events. He’s won 18 WGC’s in four different countries, with a chance to make it 19 in five this week.

There’s currently a six-way tie for first at -2: David Lipsky, Billy Horschel, Shugo Imahira, Francesco Molinari, HaoTong Li and Brooks Koepka.

On an unrelated note, Justin Thomas just drove a 415-yard green, so, that happened.

Tiger Woods clarifies pre-Masters schedule, to play Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/02/21/tiger-woods-clarifies-pre-masters-schedule-to-play-arnold-palmer-invitational-and-players/ http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/02/21/tiger-woods-clarifies-pre-masters-schedule-to-play-arnold-palmer-invitational-and-players/#respond Thu, 21 Feb 2019 17:53:49 +0000 http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/02/21/tiger-woods-clarifies-pre-masters-schedule-to-play-arnold-palmer-invitational-and-players/ Tiger Woods clarified his pre-Masters schedule Thursday, he will play Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players in Florida in March.

Tiger Woods clarified a major part of his pre-Masters PGA Tour 2019 schedule Thursday.

In a Tweet, Woods said he will be playing in the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship prior to the year’s first major at Augusta National in April.

Woods will not be playing in the Honda Classic next week at PGA National Resort & Spa in West Palm Beach, Fla., an event he referred to as his “hometown” tournament on Wednesday.

The API is set for March 7-11 at Bay Hill Club in Orlando.

Woods was a long-time resident of Windermere, Fla., next to Orlando. He has played at Bay Hill 19 times on the PGA Tour and has eight victories at Arnie’s Place. The Genesis Open, an event run by his organization for his charity, was also upgraded to “Invitational” status last week.

Given all these factors, it was extremely unlikely Woods would skip the Arnold Palmer Invitational as long as he was healthy.

The Players will take place at TPC Sawgrass on March 14-17.

Then there is the scheduling information not mentioned in Woods’ Tweet. As always with Woods, nothing is final until it’s finel.

However, Thursday’s developments mean Woods will likely miss the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook. That will be played March 21-24 (the week after The Players) as part of an expanded Florida Swing this year.

Instead, Woods will probably participate in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play event set for March 28-31 in Austin, Texas

If Woods skips the Valero Texas Open the following week, also expected, that would give him a two-week break before the Masters.

Woods played both the Honda and Valspar during his his Masters’ run-up in 2018. The move of The Players to March and Woods’ inclusion in the WGC-Mexico Championship and upcoming WGC-Dell dictated the changes this year.
