Tiger Woods commits to next two tournaments: Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational

  Tiger Woods commits to next two tournaments: Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational With the two starts, Tiger Woods will play four of five weeks, an encouraging nod to the status of his surgically repaired back. He also would have at least five starts before heading down Magnolia Lane for the Masters, which he has won four times.“After a good recovery week I’m committing to play the @ValsparChamp and @APinv next two weeks,” Woods tweeted.In last week’s Honda Classic, Woods, who missed a year of play after having spinal fusion surgery last year, finished 12th, his best placement since tying for 10th in the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

Woods will play again this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and following his runner-up at Innisbrook, Golf Channel 's Justin Ray dropped this eerie stat involving Tiger and Phil -- and Bay Hill.

Here's hoping Mickelson will remember the 21-year-old from India is a player — not a media member. They met for the first time when Sharma approached Mickelson on the putting green Saturday, a story Sharma retold to the press that evening."Me and my caddie, we both went up to him," Sharma said.
