Twofer Tuesday: Genesis Invitational

To paraphrase Randy Newman, Twofer Tuesday loves LA as it heads out west to the Genesis Invitational.

Riviera Country Club, aka "Hogan's Alley", is a legendary track that the Tour loves as well. Tiger is the host of this event and that only adds to its status. A par-71 measuring 7322 yards, the course may be most well known for the par-3 6th hole which has a bunker right in the middle of the green... or perhaps for the driveable par-4 10th, which only measures 315 yards but always seems to cause a lot more trouble for players than the numbers would lead you to expect.

Max Homa is the defending champ but I understand that all ten of the OWGR Top10 are playing this week. He'll have his hands full.

I, of course, always have my hands full (or is it empty?) when it comes to my Twofer Tuesday picks. Let's see how I do this week.

  • My first pick is Hideki Matsuyama. Hideki has a good record here and he's coming off his Sony Open victory a mere month ago. This is the kind of course he should do well on again.
  • My other pick is Dustin Johnson. I won't lie, I'm playing the odds here as DJ has 10 Top10s in 14 tries. We'll see if he can do it again.

GC's live coverage begins at 4pm ET on Thursday. (Yes, more prime time golf!) PGA TOUR LIVE's coverage begins at 9:45am ET and you can find their schedule at the bottom of the page at this link. This course always gives us a great tournament so it's going to be fun going back this week.
