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.

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.

The 42-year-old Woods made the announcement via Twitter, adding the Valspar tournament in Palm Harbor, Fla., to his schedule for the first time.

The four-time Masters victor announced Friday that before he heads to Magnolia Lane he will start two PGA Tour events - next week's Valspar Championship, which he has never played, and the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he owns eight of his 79 tour victories. 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. 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. "Keep building my body, keep building towards April".

Tiger Woods may well be the most captivating athlete of all time.

According to reports, Mueller has been looking into the financial dealings of a number of Trump family members, including Kushner. A Citigroup spokeswoman said the firm's relationship with Kushner Companies was not connected to Kushner's White House role.

"I don't think he's all the way there and all the way back".

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. "I told you guys at Torrey, try and get everything situated for April and I feel like I'm right on track for that".

In his career, Tiger has 79 PGA TOUR victories. "I'm starting to get into it quicker, feel the pace, feel the shots and get a better sense of it".

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