The Big Cat is back.
Tiger Woods, for the first time since the Masters last April, will play in an official PGA Tour event. Yes, he played a few times in December at the Hero World Challenge and PNC Championship, but this time, it’s the real deal.
The Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, is the PGA Tour’s third signature event of the year, and thanks to its elevated status, the field is loaded. Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Max Homa, Viktor Hovland, Jordan Spieth and dozens of other stars will tee it up come Thursday morning.
In 14 starts at Riviera, Woods is winless. His best finish came in 1999 when he was the runner-up. At last year’s Genesis, Woods made the cut and eventually tied for 45th.
On Monday, Woods announced his new life-style apparel brand in collaboration with TaylorMade, “Sun Day Red.”
This week will be the first time he wears the clothes in competition.
