Tiger Woods carded a 2-under 69 in Sunday action at the WGC-Mexico Championship to close out his first professional start south of the border.

Entering the day 10 shots behind leader Dustin Johnson, Woods had little chance of winning his 19th World Golf Championship event. He birdied his first two holes but failed to build any momentum after that, playing his next 16 at even par, and finished his day in a tie for 10th at 8-under for the tournament.

Tiger employed an unusually conservative strategy off the tee at Club de Golf Chapultepec, as he ranked second in driving accuracy but 66th in strokes gained: off the tee.

Woods declined to speak with the media after his round for the second straight day, according to Golf Channel's Tiger Tracker.

Tiger is scheduled to play the Arnold Palmer Invitational for his next event, which begins March 7.
