“I’m looking forward to being back in Los Angeles for the Genesis Open,” Woods said. “It’s always great to be able to play at Riviera and I am very proud of the impact the Genesis Open has been able to make on education through my foundation.”
Woods returns to The Riviera Country Club in 2019 having put together an unforgettable 2018 season. With memorable final-round surges at The Open Championship and PGA Championship, Woods capped off the 2018 season with a victory in the TOUR Championship. The win was his 80th career PGA TOUR victory and his first since 2013.
The Riviera Country Club is the site of Woods’ first PGA TOUR event in 1992, competing on a sponsor’s exemption as an amateur. Woods’ TGR Live manages the Genesis Open and proceeds from the tournament benefit his TGR Foundation.
