Tiger Woods commits to Valspar and Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published:

Tiger Woods has that he is will be playing at both the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in the next two weeks.

Woods announced on social media that following a week of recovery he has committed to both Valspar and the AP Invitational the next two weeks. 

It's another good sign for Woods and comes a few days after he posted a T12 finish at the Honda Classic last week and said his game was on track for the Masters April - which has always been the focus of his comeback. 

Woods has typically skipped the week prior to Augusta (the Houston Open) in order to have proper preparation for The Masters, and given he has admitted he needs tournament reps under his belt, entering both the Valspar and AP Invitational was a move many had predicted.

The Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course, which has a field that includes Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy, will be his fourth PGA Tour of the season, and will be a first tournament appearance for him. Conversley, Woods has won a record eight times at Bay Hill, although hasn't played there since 2013.
