Palm Beach Gardens, FL, United States (4E Sports) – World No. 1 Tiger Woods is planning to make some schedule changes in preparation for the Masters, the year’s first major.
“Still looking into that, yeah,” Woods said after shooting a one-over-par 70 in the opening round of the Honda Classic. “Still looking to possibly make some changes going in there.”
After the Honda Classic, Woods is scheduled to defend his titles at next week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral and the Arnold Palmer Invitational in three weeks, giving him two tournament weeks off prior to the Masters, which begins April 10.
Woods skipped last week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, and his 1-over 71 at PGA National on Thursday was just his eighth official round of 2014. He missed the secondary 54-hole cut at the Farmers Insurance Open and also played the Dubai Desert Classic.
If Woods sticks to his routine, he will have five starts heading to the Masters.
The only tournaments he could add are the Valspar Championship in two weeks at Innisbrook, Valero Texas Open in San Antonio or the Shell Houston Open, which is played the week before the Masters.
