Tiger Woods has been absent from all PGA tournaments after hosting the Hero World Challenge December 2019, where he made an outstanding comeback in his first full season on the PGA Tour since 2015.
The San Diego, Farmers Insurance Open tournament 2019 would feature Rory McIlroy and the current world #1 Justin Rose and a host of others. Woods has won this tournament seven (7) times; 1999, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2013. Among the competitions Woods plan to participate in this year is the Riviera Country Club, Genesis Open.
In his statement “I’m looking forward to being back in Los Angeles for the Genesis Open,” Woods said. “It’s always great to be able to play at Riviera and I am very proud of the impact the Genesis Open has been able to make on education through my foundation.”
In response Peter Ripa, Farmers Insurance Open tournament director said: “We couldn’t be happier to have Tiger back in our field. He really launched his fairytale comeback season right here last January, and he has enjoyed incredible success at Torrey Pines Golf Course and in our tournament over the years.”
Woods is keen to achieve his 81st win to get within one of all-time record holder Sam Snead (82). He has enjoyed a good run in the Florida swing and was just one shot behind Paul Casey at the Valspar Championship before posting a top-five finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He led The Open midway through the final round before fading down the stretch, while he was edged out by Brooks Koepka at the PGA Championship before claiming his first PGA Tour title for five years amid memorable scenes at the season-ending Tour Championship.
