Woods decided Friday to play in the Valspar Championship next week at Innisbrook, along with the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill the following week.
The commitment to Valspar, held in Florida, is somewhat surprising given that Woods, 42, has never played in the event before. It will be his first start at the event since his last win in 2013.
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.
Woods has won the Arnold Palmer Invitational eight times. He was scheduled to play in the event in 2014 but withdrew due to back pain. Though he made the cut on the number at Torrey Pines, he surmounted a Sunday charge to finish T-23 at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Having finished in a tie for 12th at last week's Honda Classic - his third start of the year - the former world No.1 had been leaving people guessing about when he might make his next start as he continues his return from injury. He said he was surprised how quickly he was progressing with his new swing following a fourth back surgery last April and that he's right on track in his pre-Masters build up.
"It means keep building my body, keep building towards April".
