Oppenheim shoots 66 to qualify for Genesis Open at Rivera Country Club

Woods aims to reverse Riviera fortunes

Are you heading out to watch the Genesis Open action at Riviera Country Club in person this week?

Tiger Woods plays his shot from the fifth tee during the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines South on January 27, 2018 in San Diego, California.

Just like the students at his Learning Center in Anaheim, Tiger Woods is doing some homework over the next two days before teeing off in the first round of the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club. Johnson finished T-2 at Pebble Beach this past weekend and has played some excellent golf to open the season, ranking first in total strokes gained at 3.2 and first in scoring average at 68.7.

Woods finished t-23 at Torrey Pines last month, showcasing an improved short game and solid command over his swing. Live coverage begins on Thursday from 2.30pm on Sky Sports Golf and 4pm on Sky Sports Main Event. Last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, heavy favourite Dustin Johnson was the easy winning call as he is a "horse for the course" at Pebble.

"Phil says, 'When I'm done playing, I have a couple of things with your game that will take you to the next level".

"I'm starting to understand my body more with this back that's different than it used to be".

He also acknowledged last week that Riviera is "a flawless course" for those that are striking it well. DJ opened his week with a 5-under 66 previous year to sit in a share of second place.

During the flight, Thomas asked Woods when he played in the tournament as an amateur.

Since then many Episcopal churches across the country have joined in to offer Ashes to Go , particularly at key commuter lines. The Catholic Church and a few other Christian denominations observe the occasion in fasting, abstinence, and prayer.

"As for the guys who are on tour who are young, I can handle myself", the world No 550 said.

Woods and Riviera go way back. It also has deep Hollywood roots, from being featured in films such as Follow The Sun, The Caddy and Pat and Mike, to including a membership that is a who's-who of the biggest box office names from the past hundred years. He's a core play for me this week. "I'm trying to get through that process, get to that point". He already has a win and a runner-up finish in his two PGA Tour starts this year, so expect the world's top-ranked golfer to be in contention once again.

Paul Casey: Casey still hasn't missed since the 2017 Sony Open, and has two top-10 finishes in his last two starts. However, he has played well this season with a pair of top-10 finishes at the Hero World Challenge and QBE Shootout - both unofficial PGA Tour events. And I want something to live in perpetuity that doesn't have to do with me.

Jordan Spieth: Struggling with the putter a little at the moment, but a real threat if he sorts that out.

It's an ironic place for him considering Woods, with his run of dominance that lasted for almost two decades, spent so much of his career putting his peers in position to have to catch up to him.

Alex Noren, who lost in a playoff to Jason Day at Torrey Pines looks poised for another good finish, and Thomas Pieters returns after finishing t-2 here previous year.

Woods then added, "It would be a great sign if I do play and a smart sign if I didn't play, " joking with reporters about his intentional ambiguity.
