Tiger Woods to play for ninth Arnold Palmer Invitational win

04 March 2018

It will be the first time Woods has played the Valspar tournament, but it looks like Tiger is serious about getting himself properly ready for another Masters challenge.

Woods hasn't played Bay Hill since he won there for a record eighth time in 2013. He has, however, previously played at Innisbrook - at the 1996 JC Penney Mixed Team event when he was paired with former U.S. Women's Amateur champion Kelli Kuehne.

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Tiger Woods is adding another tournament to his schedule on his road to the Masters.

It appeared Randolph, the 266th-ranked player in the world, would have had a place in next week's Valspar Championship, but a Friday morning decision by Woods meant Randolph's spot was no more. For the sake of comparison, in his last two truly healthy years (2012-13) Woods also played five tournaments prior to the Masters.

Woods tweeted that he committed to play both tournaments after a "good recovery week". "And I think he needs to contend again and get into the hunt", said Chamblee. "I told you guys at Torrey, (I'll) try and get everything situated for April and I feel like I'm right on track for that".

The 42-year-old will be making his debut in the Valspar Championships but will hope to recreate old glories at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Last week's performance by Woods was so encouraging that his odds to win the April 5-8 Masters dropped to 16-1, according to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook.

"I feel like I've really hit the ball well", Woods said after the Honda Classic.

Tiger Woods' return to golf has been a positive one with the 14-time major victor recently earning his first top-15 finish since 2015.
