Tiger Woods admits that he is still not sure of his schedule before the Masters before playing his first professional appearance in Mexico at the WGC-Mexico championship.

The 43-year-old will be heading to Chapultepec Golf Club for the third time in 2019, after finishing tied for 20th at the Farmers Insurance Open, scoring a 15th-place finish at last week's Genesis Open.

The series of tournaments after Mexico poses a number of timing issues to Woods before the first major of the year. The Honda Classic, next week, will be the first of four consecutive events in his country, Florida.

"From now on, it's very complicated," Woods told the media on Wednesday. "That's what I'm trying to understand: how much to play, how much is too much, how much is too little.
