Tiger Woods adds Valspar, Bay Hill to his pre-Masters schedule

Woods has made three starts in the 2017-18 PGA TOUR season, including a tie for 12th in his last start at The Honda Classic.

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.

This will be the first time Woods, working his way back after a fourth back surgery, has played in the PGA Tour's annual stop in Pinellas County, though he played at Innisbrook when the course hosted the JCPenney Classic, a mixed-team event, in the 1990s.

Woods tweeted his intentions saying simply: "After a good recovery week I'm committing to play in the @ValsparChamp and @APinv next two weeks". Though he hasn't played many Tour events in the past few years, Woods won the 2013 Players Championships, which is the second-highest ranking category on the list. He can not mathematically qualify for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas and it is highly unlikely that he'll play the Shell Houston Open the week prior to going to Augusta.

Conor McGregor Responds To Being Stripped Of UFC Lightweight Title
Brian Ortega has been named as Max Holloways replacement, and will put his five fight winning streak on the line against Edgar. He has not defended the title for 15 months and UFC president Dana White says that means his belt will be taken away.

The decision to play the Valspar and Arnold Palmer events means Woods will play in all three Florida tournaments leading up to the Masters, which will be held April 5-8 at Augusta National.

It will be his first time participating in the event.

Should he improve that form in the build-up to the US Masters, then Feherty says Woods will firmly be in the mix for a fifth US Masters title. "Keep building my body, keep building towards April. I told you guys at Torrey, try and get everything situated for April and I feel like I'm right on track for that".

Woods recorded excellent swing speed off the tee, hit the greens in regulation in a majority of the holes in the final round, and recorded a 361-yard drive at the Honda Classic. Each and every time I've come out to tournaments, I'm getting the feel of the round faster.
