Looking to regain the form that had him No. 1 in the world for a record 683 weeks, Woods on Friday announced he will play in next week's Valspar Championship at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor. And former PGA Tour victor Brandel Chamblee believes it is only a matter of time before Woods contends for a trophy.

The commitment to Valspar, held in Florida, is somewhat surprising given that Woods, 42, has never played in the event before. "The more I play tournament golf, the better I'll get at it".

Woods was pleased with his ballstriking all week in tough, windy conditions and stressed the importance of playing in enough tournaments before the Masters.

Woods' next two starts likely will be his last prior to the Masters, which will be April 5-8 at Augusta National Golf Club.

Woods has missed the Masters three of the last four years because of four back operations, the most recent a fusion surgery last April.

Tiger Woods may only be three starts into his PGA Tour return but some experts feel the former world number one has shown he still has what it takes to make a meteoric rise up the rankings. That was the goal when I first came back - try and get everything situated for April. "And I think he needs to contend again and get into the hunt", said Chamblee."But it will surprise nobody if he's very close to the lead all through that tournament, the Masters". With the 2018 Masters just a month away, Woods aims to continue making progress ahead of the event he's won four times by getting in some additional work.

In contrast, Woods is certainly no stranger to the Bayhill course in suburban Orlando having won eight Arnold Palmer Invitational " s including four in succession from 2000. "And I feel like I'm right on track for that".

Now it has its most appealing collection of players. Jordan Speith is also expected to join the field.
