He has also announced that he will play the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on February 23rd which will be his fourth tournament in five weeks.

Woods made his first appearance since August 2015 at the recent Hero World Challenge at Albany in The Bahamas where, despite finishing 15th in a 17-man field, he showed glimpses of great golf to finish as joint birdie-leader for the week.

The 14-time major is second on the all-time PGA Tour wins list, three behind Sam Snead who has 82 and six ahead of Jack Nicklaus with 73.
