  • McGirt returns to Riviera for Genesis Open

Tiger returns to action for his second PGA Tour event this year and Dustin Johnson defends at the 2018 Genesis Open.

"I just want to be real smart about it", Woods said. Winner's share: $1,296,000. Television: Thursday, 2-6 p.m. (Golf Channel); Friday, 4-8 p.m. (Golf Channel); Saturday, 2-3:30 p.m. (Golf Channel), 4-7 p.m. (CBS); Sunday, 1-2:45 p.m. (Golf Channel), 3-6:30 p.m. (CBS).

"Some of the holes have really changed", Woods said. The bunkers are deeper, they seem to be bigger. "And I can't wait to get started".

Adam Scott and Charl Schwartzel, two stars struggling for form, have found success here and could get back on track this week.

And it's a trait Woods hasn't lost, despite not having won on the PGA Tour since 2013, as he battled various back injuries. Thomas, who like Woods lives in Florida, hitched a ride with Woods on his plane for the flight out to Los Angeles. Although he's likely to be highly-owned in tournaments, he's the top overall play on the board. He finished T34 here last year and was 16 the year before.

"I've been away from the game a pretty long time", he said. "For a while there that wasn't the case". And they would pick my brain. "But now it's more of a playing competitor".

"I'm sorry, but that put things into perspective for me really fast", Woods said with a laugh. Indeed, with his first top-20 outcome since 2015 within reach at the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods had to settle for a share of 23rd place, thanks largely to drives that found only 17 of 56 fairways all week at Torrey Pines. When he has played, he hasn't won - an oddity for a player who has 79 career victories, including 14 majors. In three events this year, Johnson has finished in the top 10 of all three including a win and a runner-up finish. "I'll start worrying about Augusta the week after match play ends". "It's very simple. It's just one of those weird things".

"I'm looking forward to that challenge because it's my favourite course on tour".

With Tiger Woods back in the fold, an a number of thrilling playoffs dominating the West Coast Swing, golf has been entertaining so far this year. "For me, it's a huge motivator to continue to do what I'm doing, continue to work hard in the gym, to continue to work hard on my golf game, and for me a bonus is it proves that what I'm doing and the way that I'm doing things is working". "I have a long way to go". "I needed a little more loft, so I added a degree of loft on it".

In his last three appearances at the historic course in Pacific Palisades, Calif., McGirt has an average finish of 13th.

Woods cautions that this is only his third event since he's returned from back surgery. "But they know I'm playing in a tournament, and so are they".

"He asked me when did I play in this tournament as an amateur", Woods said. That's different than it used to be. There's also a history of golfers winning this event multiple times within one another.

"He's one of those players that when he gets it going, there are not a whole lot of guys better than him". But also I don't wan't to play too much.

Back up the price grid and Brendan Steele at 50s is a decent price in his home State and on greens he grew up on and I really like Alex Noren on this course which is flawless for his left-to-right ball flight but we've really ducked him at 35s.
