After his highly anticipated return at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods has made an announcement via Twitter that he will next be playing in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines and the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club.
Ironically, Torrey Pines was where Woods won his last major championship in 2008. As for the Genesis Open at Riviera, Woods is the host of the tournament, like he was at the Hero World Challenge.
A California native, the 14-time major champion looks forward to playing in these west coast tournament.
“I’m very excited to be back at Riviera,” Woods said via GenesisOpen.com. “I haven’t played at Riviera in a tournament in a very long time. To be able to play in an event that I used to come to as an amateur, as a junior and now as the tournament host, that is on one of the most historic sites in all of golf, it’s a dream come true.”
Woods, who has continued to deal with injury issues since he won five times and the Player of the Year in 2012, is in a questionable spot now. Once again, only time will tell if he’ll win again or not.
Here’s hoping, for his own sake, that he can stay healthy and out on the golf course. He’s in his early 40’s which is still very young for a professional golfer.
That’s all you can ask for at this point is to stay healthy. The competition will continue to be fierce for Woods though, with so many young players and rekindled stars like Justin Rose.
With the merge of the young and the experienced ones, I really think this is going to be an insane 2018 season of golf. Kick back, relax, and let’s see where this goes!
