Former world number one Tiger Woods says he is building towards the 2019 MastersTournament.

The 43-year-old is set to participate in this week's Riviera Open at the Riviera Country Club in California, USA.

“We have a lifting schedule, we have my practice routines,” Woods said on Golf Week.

“Everything’s geared up for the big events instead of getting enough reps and getting enough sharpness to be ready.

Woods, who won his last major in 2008 which was the US Open, participated in the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open where he shot a 67 in the final round to finish T20 last month.

The 2019 Masters Tournament will be held from April 11–14 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA.

“This year I have an understanding of what I can and cannot do,” the 14-time major winner continued.

“Finishing the year the way I did in the playoffs, hitting it like I did was great because I finally built it to a place where I can take a little time off and I know what I’ll have when I come back.

"I don’t have to go looking, searching for something, so that helps a lot.”

Woods made his first PGA Tour start as a 16-year-old amateur at the Riviera Country Club in 1992.
