Tiger Woods to play in Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor next week

He also said he will play the following week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods, who had spinal-fusion surgery 10 months ago, has been erratic off the tee but has displayed solid scrambling skills to record two top-25 finishes and reach 389th in the world.

Chamblee said impressive outings would offer a timely pre-Masters boost for the former champion but added that he saw everything he needed to see from Woods at the Honda Classic to know he could be a contender at Augusta National. "I'm starting to get into it quicker, feel the pace, feel the shots and get a better sense of it".

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.

It will be the first time Woods has played the Valspar tournament, but it looks like Tiger is serious about getting himself properly ready for another Masters challenge.

However, things took a turn when a country artist took the stage, and Blake Shelton was blocked from pursuing the contestant. The Voice has always been a positive show, but it's about to get a little dirty with the coaches and we're okay with that.

"This is great for us, and we've put together a plan with hopeful anticipation", West said.

He was, however, widely expected to be at Bay Hill for the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he is an eight-times victor. Four back surgeries have kept him out of that event since winning that tournament. That is considered a good sign given all his health issues.

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.

In 2012, Woods won at Bay Hill for his first PGA Tour victory since a sex scandal at the end of 2009 upended his life and his golf game. Since then, it has never fit into Woods' schedule. He can not mathematically qualify for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas and it is highly unlikely that he'll play the Shell Houston Open the week prior to going to Augusta. Jordan Speith is also expected to join the field.
