The decision to add one more event to his schedule shouldn't come as a surprise. Woods has won Arnold Palmer's event six times in his career ('00, '01, '02, '03, '08 and '09), and played the event every year, except 2010, since his first full season on tour in 1997. If ever there was a place to grab a final tuneup prior to the first major of the year, Bay Hill would certainly be the venue.
Unlike in years past, Woods' schedule leading up to the Masters is surprisingly full (he apparently wasn't lying when he said he needed more "reps" this season). Bay Hill will mark a stretch of four tournaments in six weeks before he arrives at Augusta.
That's a lot of golf, folks. While additional reps are never a bad thing, it'll be interesting to see if they have any effect (positive or negative) on Woods' game when he tees it up at the Masters.
