Returning Tiger goes for first-ever win at Riviera


LOS ANGELES, California (AFP) — Tiger Woods will make his first PGA Tour appearance of the year at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles on 15 to 18 February, the golfer confirmed on Wednesday.

“Excited to be host next week,” Woods posted on social media of the $20-million tournament that guarantees the winner $4 million.
He has not won in Genesis in the 12 times he has played.

The 48-year-old last competed in an official PGA Tour event at the 2023 Masters tournament in April but played in two events in December.

Woods played with his son Charlie at the PNC Championship in Orlando on 18 December after playing in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas earlier in the month.

The 15-times major champion has struggled since suffering severe leg injuries in a 2021 car crash and he underwent ankle surgery after the Masters in April.

The Genesis Invitational was won last year by Jon Rahm, one of the six champions over the last 10 years to have jumped ship to LIV Golf.
