Sports News | Tiger Woods Makes It Official: His 2024 Debut Will Come Next Week at Riviera

Los Angeles, Feb 8 (AP) Tiger Woods confirmed he will make his first PGA Tour start since the Masters at the Genesis Invitational next week at Riviera, a tournament he hosts.


Woods posted on social media Wednesday that he was ‘excited to be a playing host” when the PGA Tour’s next signature event with a USD 20 million purse starts on Feb. 15.
