Expert picks for the Genesis Open

Woods aims to reverse Riviera fortunes

He last played the tournament in 2006, and he might have remained estranged from Riviera if he hadn't taken over as tournament host previous year. He said, "That was the year before I was born".

He won't commit to playing in next week's Honda Classic in Florida until he sees how his body responds to his second tournament of the year. "It's one of my favorite courses that we play all year".

So who wins the 2018 Genesis Open this year? If the 42-year-old does triumph it will be his landmark 80th PGA tour success, which would draw him to within two of Sam Snead's all-time record. With a legitimate chance to shoot 59, he would bogey his final two holes and finish with a nine-under 62.

Woods made his eagerly anticipated return to the sport last month at the Farmers Insurance Open, finishing in a promising T23 - his first top-25 standing since 2015.

"I love the golf course, I love the layout, it fits my eye...and I play very bad", continued Woods, now ranked 550th in the world.

Minnie Driver Quits Oxfam Ambassador Role After Prostitution Scandal
Reportedly, Juan Alberto Fuentes, Chairman of the charity was arrested in Guatemala on Tuesday. Oxfam is not the first non-governmental organisation to be accused of abuse.

Dustin Johnson reached the world number one spot at the Genesis Open past year.

"I don't care how they react", Woods said, when asked about the possibility of dissing a close friend.

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 ideal for his left-to-right ball flight but we've really ducked him at 35s.

"I'm not used to walking", he said. And if there as one event that could inspire a breakthrough performance, it would probably be the Genesis Open considering he won it in 2014 and 2016.

Matt Kuchar: Hasn't finished better than T8 here in his last 10 appearances, and despite a T62 at Pebble Beach, he still comes in to this event with three top-10s in his last four starts. Then, of course, there was the sock-footed, stair slip early in the week at the Masters.

Fractious politics, high national debt pose security threats, says USA intelligence director
Asked by committee vice chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., whether they agreed that Russian activity is undiminished, all agreed with Coats.

"Eventually I'd like to win tournaments", Woods said.

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. Riviera is summarily described as the thinking man's golf course, and bit of experience with the layout - specifically the tricky pin positions - is a huge asset. Finally, in November and December, he felt he could swing the way he wanted to and could hit the shots he wanted to hit. For £6.99 you can get a day pass, if you just wish to watch one of the rounds, or for just £10.99 you can get a week pass to see the whole tournament.

"It's a good sore, it's just different". You could make a case Fleetwood is hitting the ball better than anybody in the game right now and should have much lower odds than what he has now.

He likes the course and it suits but can he jump from MC to victor in the space of a week?

"I felt like it was a place that really suited my game", he added.

"The name of the foundation going forward is going to be TGR Foundation", Woods said.
