Genesis Invitational 2024 PGA Tour picks, odds, course history

2023 Genesis Invitational

Genesis Invitational. Riviera Country Club. Tiger Woods.

Does it get any better than that?

The PGA Tour’s third signature event of the season is here and a loaded field has made its way to Los Angeles, including the tournament host.

Woods last played at the PNC Championship in December, after finishing 18th at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. His last official Tour start came at the Masters last April.

The 15-time major champion will be joined by world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay and Max Homa.

Reigning champion Jon Rahm is not in L.A. to defend his title thanks to his recent move to LIV Golf.

Justin Thomas (10/1): T-12

Sam Burns (20/1): T-3

Min Woo Lee (28/1): T-71

J.T. Poston (30/1): Cut

Beau Hossler (50/1): T-41

Close call with Burns, but the year of underdog winners continues. Does that end at Riviera? I’m sure the Tour would like one of its stars to shake Tiger’s hand Sunday afternoon.
