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

03 March 2018

Woods, 42, announced in a tweet that he plans to play in the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook, followed by the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill the following week.

It will be the first time Woods has played the Valspar tournament and his first competitive event at Innisbrook resort's Copperhead course since his early pro days at a 1996 two-player event pairing PGA and LPGA talent.

Woods' legendary career appeared to be in jeopardy last April following his fourth back surgery in the span of three years.

Woods had the most encouraging result of his comeback at last week's Honda Classic where he earned a share of 12th place.

They'd been expected to return to work Thursday after striking a week earlier, but some strikers said they weren't satisfied. Ryan Weld, R-Brooke; Charles Clements, R-Wetzel; and Mike Maroney, R-Marshall, voted not to consider SB 4145 on Thursday.

It was long expected that Woods would play the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he has not competed since the last of his eight victories at Bay Hill in 2013.

Should Woods remain in good health, a first appearance at a major since the 2015 US PGA Championship could be in the offing at Augusta in April.

Woods, who had spinal-fusion surgery 10 months ago, has been erratic off the tee but has displayed solid scrambling skills to record two top-25 finishes and reach 389th in the world.

Last week's rating for the Honda Classic were the highest since 2013, the past year Woods reached No. 1 in the world rankings and won five times. "And I think he needs to contend again and get into the hunt", said Chamblee.

Russ' teammate Paul George agreed with Westbrook's sentiment. "You know Zaza, you know his history". "You know nobody pushed him". Initial replays appeared to prove that Zaza may have done it on objective because of the slow nature of his fall.

"I don't think he's all the way there and all the way back". "I'm starting to get into it quicker, feel the pace, feel the shots and get a better sense of it".

"I missed the golf ball in the correct spots and I had control of my ball".

Woods aims to play twice before next month's Masters. Each and every time I've come out to tournaments, I'm getting the feel of the round faster.
