Woods to play at Valspar Championship, Arnold Palmer Invitational

Screenshot at Feb 26

Tiger Woods has announced he will play in the Valspar Championships and Arnold Palmer Invitational over the next two weeks. And former PGA Tour victor Brandel Chamblee believes it is only a matter of time before Woods contends for a trophy. The Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course will represent Woods' fourth PGA Tour start of the season.

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

Tiger had limited options for pre-Masters events because he is ineligible for the World Golf Chanmpionships tournaments this week in Mexico and the Match Play later this month.

Woods has missed the Masters three of the last four years because of four back operations, the most recent a fusion surgery last April.

Woods shot even par last week at PGA National to place solo 12th in the Honda Classic, by far his most promising tournament start since 2015.

"I need to keep building on it", said Woods last week to reporters at ther Honda Classic. That was the goal when I first came back.

Golf Channel and NBC analyst David Duval believes the Valspar Championship will help Woods' preparations ahead of the April 5-8 event at Augusta National. "I told you guys at Torrey, try and get everything situated for April and I feel like I'm right on track for that". 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.

"I've been away from tournament golf for so long that I'm starting to feel the rounds", Woods said Sunday following the Honda Classic. Along with Woods, players who also have entered include Rory McIlroy for the first time, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson.
