Tiger Woods to play Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational

  • Tiger Woods announces that he will play in two more tournaments

Tiger Woods has confirmed via Twitter that he will play in two imminent events - the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational - as he prepares for another Masters challenge.

Tiger Woods is back and will be in contention for the US Masters Tournament title in April, according to former PGA Tour golfer David Feherty.

The golf world expected Woods to play Bay Hill, where he has nearly a.500 record in his 17 starts.

It means Woods will now join Rory McIlroy who will also be contesting the Valspar Championship for a first time and in what will be McIlroy's sixth event ahead of the Masters. That's his best result on TOUR since a T-10 at the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

Woods is still able to enter most PGA Tour events whenever he'd like to because he has a high ranking on the PGA Tour priority list. Those are expected to be his final two tournament before heading to Augusta, where he has won four times but not since 2005.

There were a couple of failed comebacks in there but now it looks like the 14-time major victor is now at a place where he is genuinely able to compete at a high level after undergoing back fusion surgery.

In contrast, Woods is certainly no stranger to the Bayhill course in suburban Orlando having won eight Arnold Palmer Invitational " s including four in succession from 2000. "So I think it would be a very good thing for him to go play Valspar". That ties the record for most wins in a single PGA Tour event by one player.

At the WGC-Mexico Championship, India's Shubhankar Sharma upstaged the big names by eagling the par-four first hole en route to a two-shot halfway lead on Friday. The Spanish duo of Sergio Garcia (65) and Rafa Cabrera Bello (67) were in a share of second.

"I need to keep building on it", said Woods last week to reporters at ther Honda Classic.
