Tiger Woods opens Genesis with 1-over 72 in return to action

tiger woods

Tiger Woods ended an uneven day with an eventful bogey to shoot a 1-over-par 72 at the first round of the Genesis Invitational on Thursday in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

Woods, the tournament host at Riviera Country Club, played his first round of an official PGA Tour event since the Masters 10 months ago after recovering from ankle surgery.

He carded five birdies and five bogeys through 17 holes, never lower than 1 under par or higher than 1 over. But he hit a surprise shank from the 18th fairway that sprayed far right.

His recovery shot, a stinger past a large tree, gave him 15 feet for par but the ensuing putt slipped left of the hole.

At the third signature event of the 2024 season, the top 50 players and ties will make the cut after 36 holes. Woods was tied for 55th when his round concluded, eight strokes behind leader Patrick Cantlay (7-under 64).
