Genesis Open host Tiger Woods had to wait longer than expected to get things going at Riviera Country Club.
Woods was unable to begin his round Thursday due to a 7-hour rain delay and tees off for Round 1 at 11:32 a.m. ET Friday morning. It will be just his fifth competitive round of 2019 coming off his season debut at the Farmers Insurance Open, where Woods finished strong for a T-20 at Torrey Pines.
This will also make for a lot of golf in a short period of time, with Woods trying to squeeze 72 holes in three days before heading to Mexico for next week’s WGC-Mexico Championship.
We’ll be following Woods’ first round shot by shot below.
Hole No. 1: Par 5, 506 yards
