  • Genesis Open Power Rankings: Top ten players to ride with at Riviera

"It's very simple. It's just one of those weird things".

"My feet", said Woods.

He has six top-10s in 88 career TOUR starts, highlighted by T4 finishes at the 2016 Barbasol Championship and 2014 Puerto Rico Open. Following last week's T-8 result at Pebble Beach, he now returns to the comfort of Riviera, where he reached a playoff three years ago.

His scheduled return in 2017 was foiled by yet more back trouble.

"I'd like to eventually win tournaments again but right now I'm going through the process to get to that point", Woods said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

Tiger Woods: T23 and T9 in his last two starts, although admittedly is just looking to get tournament reps under his belt. Also, with length being a path to success at Riviera in the past, SG: Off the Tee will also be important in determining strong golfers for our lineups.

He's been so close, so many times over the past few years, but it's time for Casey to finally win again. Noren must improve his short game if he's going to win in loaded fields like this one, but I'll still take a stab with him and +4500 odds this week. He finished 3-under and T-23 at the Farmers Insurance Open last month.

Tiger Woods continues his comeback this week at Riviera Country Club, where he'll be paired with Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas in the first two rounds of the Genesis Open.

Past year rain and fog meant that many players had to compete 36-holes on Sunday. "I went with a shaft that's a little more stout".

Nevertheless, there was an echo of the fiery competitor who once seemed certain to eclipse Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 major titles when Woods talked about contending with today's rising stars.


Twice a Canadian has won this event and it was Mike Weir both times, in 2003 & '04.

"He asked me when did I play in this tournament as an amateur", Woods said.

Because he was played fairly well and got through his last tournament with no pain, expectations for Woods are starting to grow. "I'm sure they feel the same way", Woods said.

"Those are things that I could never have figured that out on my own not in a tournament setting because in a tournament setting, things are ramped up".

The 14-time Major victor (42) was outgunned by seven shots by McIlroy when they were last paired together in the final round of the 2015 Masters.

However, Woods acknowledged that he was leery of a physical setback that could derail his plans for a Masters campaign in April.

That was a full year before Thomas was even born. "This is still all new to me and I just want to be real smart about it".

After Torrey Pines, Woods said, he was sore - not his back, but his feet.

"The yardage book on No. 12 when I used to play is a 1-iron and a pitching wedge, now it's a driver and a 7-iron, 6-iron, somewhere in there". The more tournaments I play in, the more I'll be able to get a better understanding of that.
