Tiger Woods announces that he will play in two more tournaments

Woods was pleased with his ballstriking all week in tough, windy conditions and stressed the importance of playing in enough tournaments before the Masters.

Former PGA Tour golfer David Feherty has known Woods for decades and says the American has rediscovered his swagger.

The golf world expected Woods to play Bay Hill, where he has nearly a.500 record in his 17 starts.

The commitment to Valspar, held in Florida, is somewhat surprising given that Woods, 42, has never played in the event before.

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.

Adam Hadwin is the defending champion at the Valspar Championship, which will be held March 8-11 on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook.

The former world No.1 has played in three PGA Tour events since returning from his latest injury lay-off, with his most recent appearance an encouraging 12th-placed finish at the Honda Classic last weekend. It marked his best PGA Tour result since a tie for 10th at the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

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

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

There were a couple of failed comebacks in there but now it looks like the 14-time major victor is now at a place where he is genuinely able to compete at a high level after undergoing back fusion surgery.

Woods will be making his debut in the Valspar Championship.

"I need to keep building on it", Woods said. Each and every time I've come out to tournaments, I'm getting the feel of the round faster.

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