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. As there are only 72 players in the field, there will be no cut, meaning Woods is guaranteed four rounds of tournament play.

A busy spring schedule has been the subject of much conjecture for Woods, who is playing his third event and second in a row at this week's WGC-Mexico Championship.

The 43-year-old has triumphed in three of the four categories of WGCs - aside from the WGC-HSBC Champions - and has enjoyed most of his success at Firestone Country Club with eight titles, and in this week's event, which he has won seven times. It was high on champion Rickie Fowler at the 2019 Phoenix Open, projecting him as one of the top six contenders from the start. McIlroy won the 2014 WGC-Bridgestone and the 2014 WGC-Match Play among 21 WGC top 10 results.

"I take a lot of pride in playing well in the biggest events, so that being the majors, the Players (Championship), and the World Golf Championships", Woods told news conference. I think Rahm has another strong showing this weekend and could take home the title.

Phil Mickelson will begin his defence of the WGC-Mexico Championship title in a featured group alongside Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson.
