The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs for professional golfers at the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship, which is being held from Thursday, March 6, 2014, to Sunday, March 9, 2014, at Trump National Doral in Miami, Florida.
Technically, Trump National Doral is located in the city of Doral, which is basically a neighborhood of Miami. The 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship will be held on the TPC Blue Monster course at Trump National Doral. The TPC Blue Monster is the championship course at Trump National Doral.
All three of golf's biggest stars, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Rory McIlroy are scheduled to play at the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship. Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy are playing for sure, and Tiger Woods will play if his back allows him to.
With his record at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, I'm sure Tiger Woods is going to play if at all possible. Tiger Woods has completely dominated the WGC-Cadillac Championship, winning the tournament a record seven times since it began in 1999, including in 2013. The only other player to win this tournament multiple times is Ernie Els with two wins.
Phil Mickelson won the WGC-Cadilac Championship in 2009. The only other players to win the tournament are Mike Weir (2000), Geoff Ogilvy (2008), Nick Watney (2011), and Justin Rose (2012). Rory McIlroy is looking for his first win here, and you wonder how his frame of mind will be after what happened to him last week at the Honda Classic.
The same is true for Phil Mickelson, who missed the cut, and Tiger Woods, who withdrew from the Honda Classic with five holes remaining on Sunday with back spasms.
