2024 Genesis Invitational PGA Tour sleeper, longshot picks at Riviera

2024 Genesis Invitational PGA Tour sleeper, longshot picks at Riviera

A stacked field is in Los Angeles for the PGA Tour’s third signature event of the year, the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club.

Although world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Max Homa and Justin Thomas will tee it up Thursday, all eyes will be on Tiger Woods.

Woods hasn’t played an official Tour event since the Masters last spring but did play a few times in December at the Hero World Challenge and PNC Championship.

The 15-time major winner spent Monday night announcing his new apparel line, Sun Day Red.

Although the best players in the world are set to do battle in LA, there are several sleepers to keep an eye on.
