Woods, 42, will play in next week’s Valspar Championship near Tampa and the following week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, continuing his comeback after a long lay-off with a back injury. It will be Woods’ first time competing in the Valspar tournament, however, the American is no stranger to the Palmer event, which he has won eight times. The Fourteen-time major winner, which includes four Masters titles, has missed the past two Augusta tournaments but is expected to play next month. Woods had surgery on his troublesome back last April and was sidelined for almost 10 months, but has recently found some form after his return, finishing 12th in the Honda Classic, which moved the former world number one up to 389th in the world rankings.

Focus on form (FonF) is an approach to language education in which learners are made aware of the grammatical form of language features that they are already able to use communicatively. It is contrasted with focus on forms , which is limited solely to the explicit focus on language features

"To focus " can be transitive or intransitive. You can focus your camera, and you can focus on your camera. When you use the transitive in active voice, it imphasizes your intention. I focused my attention on getting the ball over the plate.

Tiger Woods is determined to keep enjoyment levels high as he seeks to continue his recent resurgence at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

After a miserable few years punctuated by four back surgeries, Woods has gradually returned to form in 2018 and generated huge excitement last time out on his way to a second-placed finish at the Valspar Championship.

The 14-time major champion, whose last PGA Tour victory came in 2013, now turns his attention to Bay Hill and a tournament he has won eight times.

Asked in a news conference what his expectations were this week, Woods replied: "Just keep getting better, just keep making mental improvements ... and I think I've done that [so far].

"Each and every week I've learned from what I've done and more importantly, I'm learning my body. I'm learning how I can swing it and not swing it. These are all things that are new.

"I'm still learning. I'm getting a lot better at it, which is nice, and I think you're starting to see the fruits of that now, the little tweaks I've made, and I'm excited about it.

"What I keep saying is, 'Just enjoy this'. If you would have asked me at the Presidents Cup last year [whether I would play on Tour again], I didn't know."

Tiger Woods at the Valspar Championship - the big questions ahead of round three

  Tiger Woods at the Valspar Championship - the big questions ahead of round three Tiger Woods is in contention at the Valspar Championship and here are some of the things you need to know ahead of round three.The sight of Tiger Woods challenging at the top of a PGA Tour leaderboard is not an unfamiliar one, but certainly one that has not been seen too often in recent times.

I’d much rather focus on enjoying the company of others as opposed to ‘getting ready’ to hit the ground running on January 1. Eating. Some form of exercise. A Boomerang – A curved, flat piece of wood that can be thrown so as to be able to be returned to the thrower.

On the web, the “ return ” key will submit the form by default, necessitating the next/previous buttons. We’ll focus on emulating the native functionality, relying on the “ return ” key to tab through the form and submit it when complete.

"The least amount of pain I felt was hitting a driver. It was any time I bent over that far to hit a putt or a chip, that my back pain was off the charts," he explained.

"So I couldn't chip, I couldn't putt. That was the hard part. Your scoring is around the greens and I wasn't able to practice, so that part was difficult. Now that I'm feeling better, I'm able to dedicate some time to it again."

There was widespread surprise at the Valspar Championship when Woods, who will play alongside Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama in the first two rounds this week, recorded the fastest clubhouse speed seen on the PGA Tour this season with one of his drives.

"If I knew [how that happened], I would tell you," said the 42-year-old with a grin. "I don't know! It just happened.

"I went through a number of years where I just couldn't get speed. Now all of a sudden, it's just happening.

"What we think, amongst my inner circle, is that I was living in so much pain, I didn't know it. And I was going through that slide of just protecting it, playing around it. Now I don't feel like I'm swinging very hard, but it's producing some incredible speeds, which I'm not against.

"I finally have got to a point where my back is good enough, where I can let my hands tell me what to do. I don't have those [back] issues anymore, so I can trust my hands again. I've gone back to a lot of the stuff I used to do with my dad and how he first taught me how to play golf."
