Padraig Harrington wants to take a bite out of Doral's Blue Monster this week.

But like a misfiring Tiger Woods, his real objective is the Masters at Augusta in three weeks time.

World No 1 Woods finished with a triple bogey at Bay Hill, carding a 76 for his worst score in a non-major since 2003 on his way to 22nd place.

His eight-over back nine of 43 matched the worst nine-hole score of his career but world No 10 Harrington knows that the real test will come at Augusta National in the season's first Major.

Harrington said: "I still go to every tournament trying to win and obviously the World Golf Championships are top of the list along with the Majors.

"But to be honest, I am looking more towards the Masters. It is still early in my schedule and my game is a work in progress.

"Of the four strokeplay events that I have played this year I have contended in three - so it is coming along nicely."

Harrington will tee it up at Doral for the third time after finishing 52nd and 26th in the Ford Championship at the water-strewn Miami layout in 2005 and 2006.

The WGC-CA Championship is a new event for the course, replacing the WGC-American Express Championship on the schedule.

An elite 74 man field will tee it up on Thursday with Woods bidding to win his 13th WGC title from 24 attempts.

Since the WGC series started in 1999, Woods has won five CA (formerly Amex) Championships.

He also has won the last two tournaments played at Doral's Blue Course, though the course has been toughened up with installation of faster greens and deeper rough.
