Tiger Woods commits to Valspar Championship, Arnold Palmer Invitational

  • If Tiger Plays, 2018 Masters Tickets Could Be Most Expensive Ever

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.

He is now eighth in the betting for next month's Masters, where he announced himself with victory in 1997 before adding three more titles in 2001, 2002 and 2005.

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. Both events are near his home in Florida with the Valspar taking place at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor and the Arnold Palmer, which Woods has won eight times, being hosted at Bay Hill in Orlando.

Tiger Woods has confirmed via Twitter that he will play in two imminent events - the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational - as he prepares for another Masters challenge. 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.

However as Woods has not qualified for this current week's WGC - Mexico Championship or the March 15th WGC - Dell Technology Match-Play Championship in Austin, Texas it has limited where he can play hence entering the Valspar.


This will be the first Valspar Championship appearance for Woods.

"It means keep building my body, keep building towards April". That was the goal when I first came back.

It has become clear that many players on the PGA Tour are pulling for Tiger Woods on this most recent comeback.

These will likely be Woods' final two starts before the Masters and allow him two full weeks off before heading to Augusta National.

There was a good feeling about this return from the start, and Woods continues to deliver.
