PACIFIC PALISADES—Tiger Woods will be playing at the Genesis Open at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades for the first time since 2006.
The Genesis Open takes place from February 13, 2017 to February 19, and it is where he made his PGA Tour debut in 1992 at age 16.
“I’m very excited to come back to Riviera and compete in the Genesis Open,” Woods said in a release announcing his participation. “This is where it all started for me. It was my first PGA Tour event. I was 16 years old, I weighed about 105 pounds. It was a life-changing moment for me.”
The Genesis Open is the tournament Woods has played the most without a win. He has 79 tournament victories in total, but has not won on tour since 2013. His return to golf earlier this month was for the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas where he finished 15 of 17 golfers. Aside from playing at the Genesis Open next year, he has not announced any other appearances yet.
TGR Live will host the Genesis Open tournament to benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation. Tickets for the Genesis Open are available now starting at $15.
