NEW MEXICO – Tiger Woods, who counts four Masters titles among his 14 majors, has been laying plans for Augusta National in April ever since October.
“Started probably back in October, November,” Woods said Wednesday when asked just when he began thinking about the first major championship of 2019.
“Thinking about shots I would need, clubs I'd be using for the event, what kind of swings I have been struggling with or doing well with.”
In that context, this week's elite WGC-Mexico Championship, where Woods will make his third start of 2019, is all part of the Masters plan.
Woods's precise path to Augusta National, where the Masters takes place April 11-14, isn't entirely clear.
