Tiger commits to back-to-back Valspar, Arnold Palmer events

Woods decided Friday to play in the Valspar Championship next week at Innisbrook, along with the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill the following week.

"He's close to winning a golf tournament", said former PGA Tour victor and Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee. This will be the first time Woods plays two stretches of back-to-back events before the Masters since 2006.

Woods tweeted that he committed to play both tournaments after a "good recovery week".

Presuming he completes these two events, Woods will have played five tournaments before the Masters.

The former world No.1 has played in three PGA Tour events since returning from his latest injury lay-off, with his most recent appearance an encouraging 12th-placed finish at the Honda Classic last weekend. He missed the cut at Riviera, where he never won even at his best.

Tiger Woods appears to be back, finally, and while the 42-year-old's game isn't quite sharp enough to win on the PGA Tour yet, the mere fact that he's healthy and still able to make birdies has given the game of golf a major boost. "And I think he needs to contend again and get into the hunt", said Chamblee."But it will surprise nobody if he's very close to the lead all through that tournament, the Masters".

"I need to keep playing tournaments", Woods said after the Honda Classic. "I told you guys at Torrey, try and get everything situated for April and I feel like I'm right on track for that". Along with Woods, players who also have entered include Rory McIlroy for the first time, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson. With the 2018 Masters just a month away, Woods aims to continue making progress ahead of the event he's won four times by getting in some additional work.
