Having finished in a tie for 12th at last week's Honda Classic - his third start of the year - the former world No.1 had been leaving people guessing about when he might make his next start as he continues his return from injury.

The 42-year-old may be making his debut in the Valspar Championship but has a great record at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. This will be the first time Woods plays two stretches of back-to-back events before the Masters since 2006.

Tiger Woods committed on Friday to play in next week's Valspar Championship and the following week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Presuming he completes these two events, Woods will have played five tournaments before the Masters.

Woods, 42, showed more than a few glimpses of his vintage best at last week's Honda Classic where, despite playing on one of the most hard courses on the PGA Tour, he entered the weekend only four shots off the lead.

Adam Hadwin is the defending champion at the Valspar Championship, which will be held March 8-11 on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook.

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". He has not competed at Bay Hill since he won in 2013 due to four back surgeries that kept him out of the event. "I told you guys at Torrey, try and get everything situated for April and I feel like I'm right on track for that".

Woods' appearance now at both the Valspar and Bay Hill is sure to send spectator numbers soaring as was the case in all three events he's contested this year on the PGA Tour.

"I need to keep playing tournaments", Woods said after the Honda Classic. Each and every time I've come out to tournaments, I'm getting the feel of the round faster.

Tiger Woods hopes to get 144 more tournament holes in before Augusta.
