After adding to his soaring P/L with 200/1 each-way tip Scott Stallings last week, Dave Tindall picks out three bets for the PGA Tour's Genesis Open in California.
Tiger Woods played his first professional tournament at Riviera as a teenager in 1992, shooting 72-75 to miss the cut.
The 2018 Genesis Open is the next tournament up on the PGA Tour.
A T5 in the Waste Management Phoenix Open followed by T2 at Pebble Beach represent his first back-to-back top fives on the PGA Tour since 2013. Though Tiger played his first tour event as a 16-year-old amateur at Riviera, it's a track on which he has never won.
It's an amazingly long time for someone of such talent and this week's Genesis Open at Riviera must give him a great chance of ending the drought. Live coverage begins on Thursday from 2.30pm on Sky Sports Golf and 4pm on Sky Sports Main Event.
Previous year rain and fog meant that many players had to compete 36-holes on Sunday. "I've always played well around here", said Casey after his near-miss. "The more tournaments I play in, the more I'll be able to get a better understanding of that". "This is just a golf course that you get excited to go and play".
Our ESPN and FantasyGolfInsider experts have laid out the players whom they believe have the skills to succeed and provide big fantasy point totals. "Now I'm playing against him and trying to beat him, instead of watching on TV and rooting for him". "I was telling JT (Thomas) last night when we were flying out here that it's interesting that I'm making little subtle changes in my posture and my game and my swing because I'm starting to understand my body a little bit more with this back".
Woods will be playing the first two rounds with Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas. Indeed, with his first top-20 outcome since 2015 within reach at the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods had to settle for a share of 23rd place, thanks largely to drives that found only 17 of 56 fairways all week at Torrey Pines.
"I don't care how they react", Woods said when asked how he expected today's young breed to deal with what he hopes is his re-emergence as a serious challenger. Going for the green isn't necessarily easier, with only a small flat area to land and many shots funneling to a collection area left of the green. "I went with a shaft that's a little more stout".
Dustin Johnson - Dustin Johnson is back to being Dustin Johnson, finishing runner-up or better in three of his last four events.
The Scot is teeing it up at Riviera for the ninth year running and his performances are getting better and better. He finished 27th on the Web.com Tour's Regular Season money list in 2017, missing his TOUR card by about $7,000, but had two top-5 finishes in the four Finals events. Steele also has been very solid at Riviera over the years, having made the cut in each of his last six appearances.
"I just want to be real smart about it", Woods said. In addition to strong course history, Johnson is now toting great form as he's finished first or second in all three of his early-season starts.
