On Friday Woods confirmed that he'll play in next week's Valspar Championships, as well as the ensuing Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Tiger Woods is back and will be in contention for the US Masters Tournament title in April, according to former PGA Tour golfer David Feherty.

Though it will also be Woods first appearance in "Arnie's event" since winning for an eighth time in 2013.

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. Mickelson, now 47, has four top-10s in seven events on the PGA Tour this season, and in his last three starts at Phoenix, Pebble Beach and Riviera has finished T5, T2 and T6, respectively.

He had the best result of his comeback at last week's Honda Classic where he earned a share of 12th place.

It was Woods' best finish since a tie for 10th at the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

Church at Jesus' traditional burial site reopens after protests
Christian leaders made a decision to reopen the church after Israel on Tuesday suspended tax measures they oppose. CBN News reports, the Church is located on the site believed to be where Jesus was crucified and resurrected.

These will likely be Woods' final two starts before the Masters and allow him two full weeks off before heading to Augusta National.

The Valspar Championship often gets overlooked in the Florida swing because it competes for players against the Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational, and previously a World Golf Championship at Doral.

There were a couple of failed comebacks in there but now it looks like the 14-time major victor is now at a place where he is genuinely able to compete at a high level after undergoing back fusion surgery.

"And you don't have to drive it a ton there".

In his WGC debut, the 21-year-old added a five-under 66 to his opening-round 65 for an 11-under 131 total. "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".
