Tiger Woods to contine comeback at Arnold Palmer Classic
World number one Tiger Woods will continue his return from injury at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando next week.
Woods finished tied for ninth in the WGC-CA Championship in Doral last week, which was his first strokeplay event since returning from an eight month lay-off after reconstructive knee surgery.
Prior to that Woods played in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, losing in the second round.
“I’ve had good success there,” Woods, the defending champion and a five-times winner at the Arnold Palmer event, said on his personal website.
“We all love to support Arnold’s tournament—he helped put professional golf on the map. Plus, I get to sleep in my own bed,” said Woods, who lives close to the Bay Hill course.
Last year, Woods won the event in dramatic fashion with a 25-foot putt on the last hole for birdie to beat Bart Bryant by one stroke.
