Valspar-Woods, 1st Ld-Writethru,422

Valspar-Woods, 1st Ld-Writethru,422

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

From the time Woods returned - first at his unofficial Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas last December and then when he resumed a PGA Tour schedule - he has said he was trying to ready his game for Augusta National.

But those predictions may have been premature as Woods has shown no ill effects in his latest comeback from the back problems that plagued him for years.

By contrast, Woods is an eight-time victor of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, most recently 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.

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.

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. He also missed the cut last month at Riviera.

"I don't think he's all the way there and all the way back".

"I need to keep building on it", Woods said. That was the goal when I first came back - try and get everything situated for April.

"I missed the golf ball in the correct spots and I had control of my ball".
