"I've been away from tournament golf for so long that I'm starting to feel the rounds", Woods said Sunday following the Honda.
And given his superb showing last week at PGA National who would bet against Woods winning an 80th PGA Tour event ahead of returing to Augusta National for a first occasion since finishing T17th in 2015. 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.
Both events are near his home in Florida with the Valspar taking place at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor and the Arnold Palmer, which Woods has won eight times, being hosted at Bay Hill in Orlando. There was a good feeling about this return from the start, and Woods continues to deliver. Tiger Woods is adding another tournament as he tries to get his game ready for 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.
The 42-year-old had limited options for pre-Masters stops because he is ineligible for the World Golf Chanmpionships tournaments this week in Mexico or the Match Play later this month.
"This is great for us, and we've put together a plan with hopeful anticipation", West said.
Sharma, who entered the week ranked first on the European Tour after early-season victories in South Africa and Malaysia, said: "I've definitely proven to myself I belong here and I can play with the big boys".
Woods will be making his debut in the Valspar Championship.
The 14-time major champion remained in contention through the majority of the tournament with the type of steady play that has eluded him for several years.
