“I’m excited to get back out there,” said the 42-year-old Woods, who tied for 32nd at the Masters in his last start. “I took some time off and worked hard in the gym. I’ve made good progress and want to keep moving forward.”
Woods began the year at No. 656 in the Official World Golf Ranking, but has climbed to No. 91. He posted three top 12 finishes on the Florida circuit, highlighted by a second-place showing at the Valspar Championship.
