A PGA tournament with a strong field? Sign me up.
This week, we arrive at the Genesis Open which will be played at the notable Riviera Golf Course in Los Angeles, California. To make things even better, this is shaping up to be the strongest field to date for the year with guys like Rory, JT, DJ, and TIGER!!!
I should probably add Bryson into that list too, I think it’s safe to say he is a notable player in the golfing world now.
And you still have Finau, Rahm, Fleetwood, Spieth in the field too. This field is absolutely insane for a regular PGA event.
One thing about Tiger, he loves playing this California stretch of courses, but historically he has never played well here, and it’s also his first time playing this course in 12 years. With that being said, it’s Tiger Woods, I’d watch him hit golf balls into the ocean at Venice Beach if I could.
Unfortunately, Justin Rose and Brooks Koepka who are #1 and #2 in the world respectively will not be in the field this week. We will likely have to wait until next months Players Championship to see the whole gang back together.
This is definitely making up for last weeks Pro-Am tournament which is always underwhelming to watch, not to mention that they always use Pebble Beach as the course to do it which is a shame.
Anyways, back to the Genesis Open, I think its fantastic that we have this strong of a field for a tournament in February. Looking forward to watching it!
