Tiger Returns to Where it All Started – Riviera

Tiger Woods will take part in the Genesis Open February 13-19 at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles.

It’s the site of his PGA Tour debut in 1992 when he was 16.

It will be his first time playing the tournament since 2006. This is his first confirmed date for the 2017 season after playing the Hero World Challenge two weeks ago in The Bahamas.

The Tiger Woods’ Foundation will manage the tournament in a sponsorship with the PGA Tour and Genesis.

Back in 1992, Woods missed the cut at the Nissan Los Angeles Open, shooting a 72-75. It was one of 34 tournaments he competed in as an amateur, the last of which was the 1996 Open Championship, in which he finished tied for 22nd.

The following spring he would win the 1997 Masters.
