Woods shot even par last week at PGA National to place solo 12th in the Honda Classic, by far his most promising tournament start since 2015.

It means Woods will now join Rory McIlroy who will also be contesting the Valspar Championship for a first time and in what will be McIlroy's sixth event ahead of the Masters.

Tiger Woods tweeted Friday morning of his plans to play the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational during the next two weeks.

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

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.

At the time Woods said that he felt instant relief and that he wasn't done competing or winning.

Tiger Woods is back and will be in contention for the US Masters Tournament title in April, according to former PGA Tour golfer David Feherty. "Keep building my body, keep building towards April".

Woods ranks second all-time with 79 PGA Tour wins, his last coming in August 2013. That was the goal when I first came back.

"I've been away from tournament golf for so long that I'm starting to feel the rounds", Woods said Sunday following the Honda Classic.

Woods, 42, showed more than a few glimpses of his vintage best at last week's Honda Classic where, despite playing on one of the most hard courses on the PGA Tour, he entered the weekend only four shots off the lead.

"Certainly there's hurdles to overcome, but the sharpness of his golf swing and his game look very, very good", said Duval."You can see that as much as anything I think it was some competitive rust he was fighting".
