Tiger Woods returns to the PGA Tour 

Woods will be making his first appearance of 2024. He was last in action at the Hero World Challenge in early December 2023, carding a score of even par to finish in 18th place. Prior to that, he was in the field for the Masters in April, where he had to withdraw due to injury in the third round. 

The 48-year-old Woods has been slowed by a range of injuries in recent years. In 2023, he played in only three events, and he was in just four the season prior to that. However, his star power remains through the roof. Whenever the 15-time major winner is in the field, there’s heightened interest from both a viewing and betting perspective.  

Woods’ career record at the Genesis Invitational 

In addition to being in the field this week, Woods is also the designated tournament host for the Genesis. It’s a tournament that also holds some historical significance on his lengthy resume. Back in 1992, when this event was known as the Los Angeles Open, a then-amateur Woods was just 16 years old as he competed in a PGA Tour event for the first time. 

All told, he has made 15 appearances at this event, including last season, but has never claimed victory here. Here’s a look back at the history for Woods at the Genesis Invitational.

Genesis Invitational overview 

The Genesis Invitational will take place this Thursday through Sunday at the Riviera Country Club, a par-71 that stretches for 7,322 yards. The defending champion is Jon Rahm, who won last year’s event by carding a -17, two strokes ahead of second-place finisher Max Homa. Rahm is not in the field for this year’s edition.
