Tiger Woods to continue comeback next week

The 42-year-old Woods made the announcement via Twitter, adding the Valspar tournament in Palm Harbor, Fla., to his schedule for the first time.

Tiger Woods has committed to playing consecutive weeks at the next two PGA Tour events in what will likely be his final tournaments ahead of the Masters.

It has been ten years now since Woods has won a major and with the last few years hampered by injury, there were concerns that the public would never see Tiger Woods back on the course again.

Woods finished in 12th place in the Honda Classic at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Florida in February, in what was only his third PGA Tour start since his comeback after spine surgery. 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. He would normally get his pre-Masters work in at this week's WGC Mexico Championship or the WGC Dell Match Play at the end of March, but because his world ranking is so low, he is unable to get into those tournaments.

Should he improve that form in the build-up to the US Masters, then Feherty says Woods will firmly be in the mix for a fifth US Masters title. "Keep building my body, keep building towards April".

Tiger Woods is scheduled to make his first Masters start since 2013 this spring.

"I don't think he's all the way there and all the way back". That was the goal when I first came back - try and get everything situated for April.

"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.

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