Valspar Championship officials are reporting that Tiger Woods is a possibility to play the March 8-11 PGA Tour event a Innisbrook Resort.
Woods has never played tournament in his preparation for the Masters.
But his low world ranking makes it extremely unlikely he’ll be eligible for either World Golf Championship before the year’s first major. So if he’s looking to make another start before heading to Augusta, it would probably have to come at a PGA Tour stop he’s never previously visited. Enter the Valspar Championship.
Earlier this week, the Tampa tournament released its tentative field list and Woods was included on it for the first time since the tournament began in 2000. Woods hasn’t committed to playing in the event March 8-11, but he’s listed under “UNDECIDED (Possible).”
Valspar already has an impressive field with Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Bubba Watson and Gary Woodland committed to play.
