Tiger Woods adds another start in Tampa to pre-Masters run

Brandel Chamblee believes there's an '80 percent chance' Tiger Woods plays Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods casting a shadow larger than ever

Innisbrook became part of the PGA Tour schedule in 2000.

Woods is a four-times Masters champion but has not competed in the first major of the year since 2015 due to a back injury that some felt would spell the end of his illustrious career.

So that's that. Golf fans want to see Tiger and that's why you'll see nearly every one of his shots in every tournament he plays whether he is in the lead or not.

The decision to play the Valspar and Arnold Palmer events means Woods will play in all three Florida tournaments leading up to the Masters, which will be held April 5-8 at Augusta National.

Woods has made three starts in the 2017-18 PGA TOUR season, including a tie for 12th in his last start at 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. He missed the cut at Riviera, where he never won even at his best.

The 42-year-old may be making his debut in the Valspar Championship but has a great record at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

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

"I need to keep building on it", said Woods last week to reporters at ther Honda Classic. "And I feel like I'm right on track for that". Though he hasn't played many Tour events in the past few years, Woods won the 2013 Players Championships, which is the second-highest ranking category on the list.

There was a good feeling about this return from the start, and Woods continues to deliver. Along with Woods, players who also have entered include Rory McIlroy for the first time, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson.
