Woods aims to reverse Riviera fortunes

Woods aims to reverse Riviera fortunes

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. "It's something that I think is important because the foundation and the work we do, in my opinion, is bigger than my name". "And I play terrible". Some of the holes have really changed.

"The old yardage books are out the window", he said. What are the best spots to get the most reps?

"So I've got to do a little bit more homework (Wednesday) in the pro-am".

So what should we expect from Tiger this week?

"Obviously to get myself to No. 1 in the world was huge for me", Johnson admitted.

"I felt we could all see how bad I was driving it (at Torrey Pines), so I was able to clean that up a little bit", said Woods, who was sidelined for 10 months a year ago while recovering from spinal fusion surgery.

"I didn't know if I would ever get back to this point and all the well wishes along the way have really blown my mind".

"I think now (the young players) are starting to see me as a competitor because I'm starting to come back again", Woods said Tuesday.

"The hardest thing for people to understand who weren't out here when Tiger was at the peak of his powers is how much of an aura he carried with him", fellow Masters and PLAYERS champion Adam Scott says.

DJ boasts sensational course form of 1-4-2-2 and he has two other top fives at Riviera but he's idled when hitting the front at two of his last four events (Pebble last week and the WGC-HSBC) and has paid the price.

Johnson, for his part, is bullish on his own skills, despite failing to wrap up a victory for the seventh time in 12 tries when entering the final round with a share of a 54-hole lead or better, according to the Associated Press. Phil Mickelson also is in the field.

It's been happening for an bad long time and starting with his top 10 at Pebble Beach last week and reading backwards the Englishman's results read: 8-8-11-19-7-5-33-4-5-13-5-11-5.

Not a Sky Sports customer and want to watch the Genesis Open?

Woods will make his first appearance at Riviera since 2006.

McIlroy has contested the $7.2m Genesis-backed event just once before in his career and it was a 2016 showing he would rather forget. Dating back to the first event of the season in the fall, Steele has not finished outside of the top 30 in any of his six events played. The World No.1 is an obvious pick for glory, but given his short price it's perhaps worth looking at the multi-talented chasing pack: McIlroy, Spieth, and Thomas. T-4 here in 2015.

"Even like last week [at Pebble Beach, where he finished tied for second] I didn't feel like I had my best stuff, but I still was there in contention with a chance to win on Sunday, which shows me that my game is definitely getting back to where it was".

Alex Noren: Followed up his play-off defeat to Jason Day with a T21 last week.

He also acknowledged last week that Riviera is "a flawless course" for those that are striking it well.
