Perhaps you’ve heard the big news. Charley Hoffman, Grayson Murray, Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Kevin Yu and Matthieu Pavon will be teeing off this week at the Genesis Invitational after clinching spots through the Aon Swing 5.

Also, Tiger Woods is back.

The 15-time major champion will tee off on the PGA Tour for the first time since his Masters third-round WD last April. An ankle injury with surgery to follow sidelined Woods for most of the year, but the TaylorMade man will play host (and golf) at this year’s Genesis, putting him back in the mix for this season’s majors.

The PGA Tour’s third signature event of the season boasts a $20 million purse and one of the strongest fields of the budding year. Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Xander Schauffele, Wyndham Clark, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Matt Fitzpatrick, Brian Harman and Ludvig Åberg will all be on hand to Riviera Country Club, looking for a nice early-season win … and a $4 million first-place prize money payout.

Last year’s winner (and three-time Genesis victor) Jon Rahm will not be partaking in this year’s festivities, because of, well, yeah, his jump to LIV Golf. He won the 2023 event with a 17-under score, besting Max Homa by two shots. The Spaniard will be there in spirit, but certainly not in person.

The winner will receive 700 FedEx Cup points and that $4 million share of the $20 million purse.

A compact and shrewd design by George C. Thomas Jr. and associate William P. Bell, Riviera features everything from a long Redan par 3 to a bunker in the middle of a green to an alternate-fairway par 4. With its 18th green at the base of a natural amphitheater, and its primary rough consisting of club-grabbing Kikuyu, Riviera seems tailor-made as a tournament venue. It hosted a PGA Championship in 1995, a U.S. Senior Open in 1998 and a U.S. Amateur in 2017, but no U.S. Open since 1948. Riviera was recently awarded the 2031 U.S. Open, and it will also host the 2028 Olympics. But it’s the site of an annual PGA Tour event, which is even better exposure to the golf world.
