Tiger Woods has confirmed when he will next tee it up on the PGA Tour. With only the top 64 players in the world qualified to enter match play later this month, he'll sit that one out as well and will enter the Valspar on the strength of a 12th-place finish at the Honda.
As much as that aggravates me as a golf fan. Like I said, get back in the gym.
Tiger Woods is scheduled to make his first Masters start since 2013 this spring.
The 14-times major champion, whose third-round 69 was his lowest on the PGA Tour since 2015, finished eight shots off the pace in 12th for perhaps his boldest statement yet of the year. And former PGA Tour victor Brandel Chamblee believes it is only a matter of time before Woods contends for a trophy.
"It's probably a tie between his club head speed and his ability to get the ball up and down again that surprised me the most". This will be the first time Woods plays two stretches of back-to-back events before the Masters since 2006.
It's been a relatively positive display thus far for Woods in his latest comeback endeavor.
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. That was the goal when I first came back. "He's certainly getting terrible close very bad quickly".
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.
In addition to his four Masters titles, Woods has won the PGA Championship four times, the U.S. Open three times and the British Open three times.
"I watched him a little last week and he looks really good", Feherty told Omnisport on Friday.
