Tiger Woods wants to be in prime condition for the Masters


As Justin Thomas warmed up early Tuesday at the WGC-Mexico Championship he carefully studied each shot. Here's some betting options for this weekend's event.

A view of the golf bags used by Phil Mickelson and Jason Day during the second round of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club on May 4, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2017, he won back-to-back WGC events - the first one in Mexico, followed by the Dell Technologies Match Play.

Woods, whose 80 career US PGA titles are two shy of Sam Snead's career record, shared 15th in last week's tour event at Riviera and remains a fan favourite at age 43 even though he last won a major crown at the 2008 US Open.

With less of a demand off the tee - players have hit fewer than 10 drives on average over the last two years in Naucalpan - there is more of an emphasis on approach play where Woods has been particularly strong so far this season, in his appearances at Torrey Pines during the Farmers' Insurance Open and last week's Genesis Open, Riveria, both classical tracks that have hosted the US Open.

Manny Machado agrees to 10-year, $300 million deal with Padres
Machado tried to clarify his remarks after the season, saying, "looking back, it doesn't come across how I meant it". But in the end we went after the guy and we didn't get him. "Jerry, in particular, really stepped up".

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi the police have not confirmed the person's story yet, but plan to interview them on Tuesday.

Four-time major victor McIlroy of Northern Ireland, who shared fourth at Riviera, has three top-five finishes in 2019 as he aims for a third career WGC title.

"My record has been pretty good in those events", added Woods, who owns a record 18 WGC titles.

DeChambeau has won four of his past 10 worldwide starts, two of them in last year's PGA Tour playoffs.

Rahm sits sixth in the world rankings and has been knocking on the door for a win all year. Since then, the 24-year-old has claimed three European Tour wins and been a member of a victorious Ryder Cup team at Le Golf National. Rahm finished third in this event in 2017 and 20 past year. "I think I've had some success in World Golf Championships no matter where they're played". He finished 17 or better in all four WGC events past year. Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson also owns two WGC victories while three-time major victor Koepka seeks his first WGC triumph. Fleetwood has some nice odds for his ability and I think he could provide a big payout.
