Genesis Open

Recommended Posts

I am already bored of the PB PA. Looking forward to the return of Bubba, hopefully he can defend his title. Always an exciting player to watch. Another great field this week. Absent is world number 1 Justin Rose, but we will get to see the Open Champ, Francesco Molinari for the first time at this event. A few other players will be there as well.

It’s here. Monday of the Genisis. Can’t wait till Thursday’s Bubba tee shot.

I am taking him to defend.

Who you got?

Hunter Mahan?

He will get all of the attention for sure. I just hope we get a Bubba featured group. There’s nothing like watching his poetry in motion.

I’m rooting for Cameron Champ this week. I’m hoping to see him hang with the big dogs. It will be fun to watch him and DJ in the same group to see the long ball

I want to say Rory for my fantasy team, but my heart just isn't in it. I'd rather see Bubba or someone else win.

DJ has played well at Pacific Palisades and I wouldn’t count him out, especially with a pretty strong win at the Saudi International last week.

Well since he is in the field, that makes him my pick!  He has got to win 1, right?

Bubba and DJ are great picks but I'm going with JT this week. His irons have been on point and the greens at Rivera are some of the toughest to hit on tour.... Rooting again for Stallings! Great finish last week and solid showing here last year. Praying the Air Density is variable so DeChambeau's yardage calcuations are off...

You can bet he'll be checking the barometer before play.....and then complain that it wasn't calibrated correctly. I'm rooting for anyone but Dechambeau or Rahm

Yeah that would be some group to watch.

Mr. I throw my clubs and smash the heck out of them and Mr. I’m Smarter than all of you so I am not even going to try and make you understand.

No thanks. I don’t mind Rahm but BAD is on my list of not to watch. Great golfer, great dude I’m sure. If I wanted a science lesson I’d watch Weird Science or Bill Nye the science guy.

Yeah I'm not a big Rahm fan. He seems like Sergio on roids and that includes driving distance and roid rage... He's insanely talented but I don't like the childish antics. 

Bryson is on fire but in this field I'm not sure I see him coming out on top... even if the Air Density is constant...

Tiger has only played there 12 times and has never won.  If he were to win, it would be the start of a really great season for him, but I'm going with another SoCal player... Xander Schauffele.

This is one of my favourite tournaments every year. I love the course at Riviera and although I will never get to, I would LOVE to play there someday. Just an awesome layout with so many unique and challenging holes. The 10th is maybe the best short par 4 I've ever seen. 

I'd love to see Tony Finau pull this one out, he's such a great driver of the golf ball, but I don't know if he can putt well enough. Seeing Bubba defend would be awesome but I'd also be okay with Spieth pulling this one out and starting himself on a good track for this year.

Last year for the Genesis Open.  

Starting next year, the PGA Tour gives a nod to Tiger as a modern day golf icon by elevating the status of the Genesis Open to an invitational, ala the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Memorial; raising the purse by $1.9M to $9.3M.  

Sounds great... unless you are one of the 24 players in the field this week that can't play next year because an invitational reduces the field size to 120.  Oh well, the rich get richer!
