He is in the same group as Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, just like previous year, when Woods missed the cut for the only time in 2018 at a regular PGA Tour event.

Tiger Woods met with the media on Wednesday at Riviera Country Club ahead of the Genesis Open and, like everything in the world nowadays, it got political.

The World Golf Championships consistently attract the most elite and global fields of the year, with 40-50 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking teeing it up in the four annual events. "So I'm in a very different position now, having played an entire season - I know what my body can and cannot do and so I'm looking forward to this week". It's been a while. "I was one back with one to go and put it over there in some beer tent to the right", Woods remembered.

The real measure was in 2000, when Woods either won or was runner-up in 10 out of 11 starts on the PGA Tour. "So hopefully I can do a little bit better this year". I always have. I enjoyed playing up here when I was young with my dad. "He's a great kid and we've got close over the years". Woods' 80th win also pulled him within two of Sam Snead's PGA TOUR record of 82 career victories.

"I'm in a very different position now having played an entire season, and I know what my body can and cannot do", he said.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief says allies keen to avoid arms race with Russian Federation
Russian Federation insists it has a range of less than 500km, and claims USA target-practice missiles and drones also break the treaty.

"I just think, I'm trying to keep the traveling down to a minimum and just focus on our tour", Woods said. What began as the AT&T National in Washington, D.C., in 2007, was originally meant to grow into the status of the Palmer and Nicklaus events.

Expectations are slightly higher, though it's still early in the season.

He added: "I haven't really played a lot overseas and I turned down the invitation last summer, so it was well before anything had transpired".

Players already committed to the WGC-Mexico Championship include defending champion Phil Mickelson, reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year Brooks Koepka, 2017 WGC-Mexico Championship victor Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Reed, Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm and Bubba Watson.
