Enjoy the elite field at the WM Phoenix Open? Wait until you take a look at the Genesis Invitational odds board.
Following a great week at TPC Scottsdale that saw Scottie Scheffler retake the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking, the PGA TOUR moves to Los Angeles for the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club, where Tiger Woods is serving as the host while also teeing it up in the field.
Right now, three players stand atop the rest on TOUR: Scheffler, Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy.
In a one-year span between the last two WM Phoenix Opens, Scheffler now has five wins, including the Masters. In his last six PGA Tour starts, Scheffler’s worst finish it T11, which came at The American Express in January.
Rahm hasn’t been too shabby either. In six PGA TOUR starts this season, his resume has finishes of T4-T8-1-1-T7-3. The Spaniard will look to bounce back after falling five shots shy of Scheffler in Phoenix.
McIlroy has only made two starts on TOUR this season. He won the CJ Cup last fall, and he made his U.S. debut in Phoenix, where he finished T32 at 4-under. He is still No. 2 in the world, sandwiched in between Scheffler and Rahm.
Otherwise, most players will be making the short trip from Phoenix to Los Angeles. There will be nine top-10 players in the field this week compared to the eight who were in Phoenix. Will Zalatoris will return this week after not playing at TPC Scottsdale.
Riviera Country Club presents different greens for players this week (Poa Annua). The rough may be a bit more penalizing compared to TPC Scottsdale.
In terms of distance, Riviera is similar to TPC Scottsdale at 7,322 yards as a par 71. It’s nothing hugely long, but the winning score is usually in the low teens.
You’ll notice a trend in years past about some of the winners at Riviera: They’re bombers.
J.B. Holmes, Bubba Watson (a three-time winner) and Dustin Johnson all tend to hit the ball further than the average TOUR player. Niemann and Homa are elite ball strikers who fit most courses on Tour.
