‘Golf Emperor’ Tiger Woods is back. The return stage is the Genesis Invitational sponsored by a Korean company.
Tiger Woods (47), who disappeared from the regular tour after being eliminated from the PGA Tour Open Cut in July last year, is coming on the 17th (Korean time) at the Riviera Country Club (par 71) in Palisades, California, USA. He was named on the list of players for the opening Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars).
Whether Woods recovers or not is not the issue. The heat of the competition is heating up just by the news that he will participate. There is also a prospect that cloud galleries will be crowded.
Riviera Country Club has a relationship with Woods, who first participated in the PGA Tour as an invited player in 1992 when he was 16 years old. Since 2018, Woods has grown his size by taking on the official host. This year, he will also play a dual role as host and player.
He is also interested in competing for first place on the PGA Tour. This is because it is the second tournament this season in which Scotty Scheffler (USA), Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), and John Rahm (Spain), who are building a solid top-three system, all participate. 스포츠토토
Korean brothers such as Kim Joo-hyung, Lim Seong-jae, Kim Si-woo, Lee Gyeong-hoon, and Kim Seong-hyun also compete for the title. Kim Young-soo (33), winner of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Genesis Championship last year, will participate as an invited player.
