Tiger Woods Has Disastrous Start To This Week’s Tournament

But that meant missing a tournament that is less than 30 minutes from his home and where he finished 12th a year ago.

"Next week (Honda Classic) is at home for me, then there's a tournament that I've won eight times (Arnold Palmer Invitational), then another event I've won a couple of times (Players Championship) and then the week after is where I had an unbelievable week past year (Valspar Championship)".

"I always love playing at Bay Hill", said Woods.

After playing just 24 events between 2014 and 2017, the biggest problem for Woods is now figuring which event to leave out of his schedule.

Woods, 43, already shares the record (with Sam Snead) for the most wins in a single TOUR event with his eight victories at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard (and the newly-named World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational).

Rory McIlroy took pole position at the WGC-Mexico Championship after an impressive opening round.

"Sorry to miss seeing Jack [Nicklaus, the tournament host] and everyone at Honda", Woods tweeted.

Woods is now playing at this week's WGC-Mexico, and he carded an even-par 71 on day one. That meant Woods had to make a hard choice that realistically came down Bay Hill and the Honda, as playing five weeks in a row is not desireable for the 43-year-old.

"If I was to play the Irish Open, the Open Championship would be my third event in a row", he said.

The move of The Players to March and Woods' inclusion in the WGC-Mexico Championship and upcoming WGC-Dell dictated the changes this year.

"Unfortunately, due to the schedule this year, I can not play all the events I want to". That's one of the reasons why I put in Tampa a year ago after I missed the cut in L.A., to make sure I get some rounds in and be race ready.

The Arnold Palmer Invitational is March 7-10 in Orlando, and The Players Championship is in Ponte Vedra Beach the week after that.

The 14-time major victor is having to manage his playing time amid a busy schedule, with the 43-year-old now more selective than ever following his injury problems.
