Tiger ready to take on new challenge in Mexico


India's Shubhankar Sharma said he will have to get the right mindset and also manage the course well to produce another good show at the WGC-Mexico Championship beginning on Thursday, PTI reported.

Tiger Woods hits from the sixth hole tee box during the continuation of third round play in the Genesis Open golf tournament at Riviera Country Club.

The WGC-Mexico Championship has a whopping NZ$14.5 million prize pool and Fox is now rushing to the Club de Golf Chapultepec to prepare for the event which starts Friday morning NZT.

Woods has only played two events so far in 2019 but he heads into his third at the WGC-Mexico Championship confident he is in a better position to challenge at the top of the leaderboard - both in Naucalpan and at Augusta.

So... Tiger is pretty strong in these WGC events.

Ahead of the WGC-Mexico Championship, we look back at highlights from last year's event. with an added Mexican twist! "This year to be able to ramp up a schedule and be able to know what I can do going into the event is a lot more comforting than it has been in previous years because it has been kind of an unknown going into that event".

Mickelson arrives with one title under his belt already this year, after earning his 44th PGA Tour victory at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. "I just want to try to get my best golf out". What I'm trying to figure out is how much to play, how much is too much, how much is not enough and at the end of the day being race ready enough for April. Phil Mickelson won in 2018.
