2023 Genesis Invitational tee times, pairings: When Tiger Woods, field start Round 1 on Thursday at Riviera
Tiger Woods is officially back. By joining the 2023 Genesis Invitational, the 15-time major champion will break the hiatus from the PGA Tour, which dates back to the 2020 Zozo Championship. Although he has since played in major championships, Woods’ participation in the “regular” tournament did not go unnoticed and was a welcome surprise given his leg and foot injuries.
Tiger will take on buddies Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas on Thursday and Friday at the Riviera. The first round on Thursday will be at 3:04 pm ET, while their starting time on Friday is at 10:24 am. Woods isn’t the only player on the field you should be looking out for as he is 19 of the top 20 players in the official world. The golf ratings went to Pacific Palisades in California.
Led by world No. 1 Scotty Scheffler, the three-horse race at the top of the world of golf looks to be taking shape just as players head to the finish line, i.e. Masters 2023, less than two months away. Scheffler is paired with fellow world champions Jordan Spit and Collin Morikawa. This trio will play at 15:15 on Thursday and 10:25 on Friday.
John Rahm rounds out the elite of the game and he will have the opportunity to reclaim the world number one spot if he wins at the Riviera Country Club. Ram is in a group with Patrick Cantley and Victor Hovland. This trio will start at 10:24 on Thursday and at 15:04 on Friday.
Here’s a look at all the big groups in the first two rounds this week at the Riviera.
