Genesis Open

The Genesis Invitational

Feb. 13-16, 2025

WHERE LEGENDS ARE MADE

This February, the PGA TOUR returns to Los Angeles and greatness will be unleashed on the greens. Tournament host Tiger Woods welcomes an elite field to compete at the iconic Riviera Country Club during the 2024 tournament. The Genesis Invitational is where legacies are defined, legends are born and the stars shine brightest. Join us at The Riviera Country Club, February 13-16, 2025.

My eight-year golf journey: how it shapes my motivation for my future.

As a TGR Learning Lab member, I had the honor of attending the 2024 Genesis Invitational, hosted by Tiger Woods. It was a time of opportunity, and I’m very thankful to represent the programs TGR Foundation has to offer. I first attended in 2019 and was extremely delighted to have been invited back. It felt like a reunion. I went with other TGR Learning Lab members to experience the tournament as spectators, take a glimpse behind the scenes, and explore possible careers.

Hideki’s day

A perfect round vaulted Hideki Matsuyama to a three-shot victory at The Riviera Country Club in the 2024 Genesis Invitational. Nine birdies on the round propelled the 2021 Masters champion to a final-round 62, one shot off the course record. Matsuyama’s 62 in the final round is the best final round score at Riviera on the PGA TOUR.

Eighteen holes to go

Moving day lived up to its billing Saturday at The Riviera Country Club during the third round of the 2024 Genesis Invitational. Patrick Cantlay continues to hold the lead as he has after each round this week but what was a comfortable cushion has shrunk to two shots. Cantlay’s 14-under-par 199 through 54 holes leads Xander Schauffele and Will Zalatoris, who are tied for second at 12-under.

Cantlay creates a cushion

Patrick Cantlay teed off Round 2 of the 2024 Genesis Invitational with the 18-hole lead. Throughout the afternoon, the Long Beach, Calif. native cushioned his margin on the field, posting the clubhouse lead at 13-under-par 129 after 36-holes. The trio of Jason Day, Luke List and Mackenzie Hughes are tied for second at 8-under, five shots back.

Can’t Stop Cantlay

The Riviera Country Club felt very familiar for Patrick Cantlay on Thursday during the first round of the 2024 Genesis Invitational. The UCLA product surged to the top of the leaderboard with a 7-under-par 64 to hold the first-round lead by one shot over Cam Davis, Luke List and Jason Day.

Arnold Palmer Invitational: Bay Hill’s final 4 holes will separate best from the rest

Regarded as one of the most challenging golf courses on the PGA Tour, Bay Hill’s final four holes will play a pivotal role yet again.

Share All sharing options for: Arnold Palmer Invitational: Bay Hill’s final 4 holes will separate best from the rest

Scottie Scheffler, PGA Tour, Arnold Palmer Invitational

The PGA Tour returns to Bay Hill Club & Lodge for the Arnold Palmer Invitational , the fourth Signature Event of the 2024 Season.

This week’s field is loaded, but so is the golf course, which is loaded with trouble.

Water comes into play on nine holes, and if the wind picks it up, it turns Bay Hill into a U.S. Open -like atmosphere.

Since 2020, only one winner has finished double-digits under par. Bryson DeChambeau did so in 2021, shooting 11-under for the week to win by one.

Hence, mitigating mistakes is paramount. But to do that, players must find the fairway off the tee to succeed at Arnie’s Place.

“I think there’s a premium on driving the golf ball in the fairway, and I think you have to play really smart around this place,” Patrick Cantlay said Tuesday.

“There are some really tricky hole locations, and if you get out of position, it’s really important to get the ball to the correct spot if you want to have a chance at scoring. It’s definitely one of the harder stops on Tour.”

With temperatures in the mid-80s all week and wind gusts swirling up to 20-25 miles per hour, this course will only get more challenging as the championship wears on.

That should entertain golf fans everywhere.

Knowing this, let’s explore the final four holes at Bay Hill, which will play a pivotal role in determining the winner:

Hole 15 - Par 4, 467 Yards

Rory McIlroy, PGA Tour, Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard

After Bay Hill kicks players in the mouth for 14 holes, you arrive at the difficult par-4 15th gasping for air. But the 15th offers little reprieve—much like the rest of the golf course.

Last year, this dogleg right par-4 ranked as the third most challenging hole during the tournament. It requires a 250-yard carry over a bunker at the corner of the dogleg, as the fairway narrows significantly beyond the trap.

At the 300-yard mark off the tee, the fairway is only 21 yards wide, leaving very little room for error. Magnolia trees on either side make the target look smaller than it appears, making this one of the most difficult driving holes on the property.

Players will then face a second shot into a green protected by three sand traps.

Two guard the front of the green, while the third sits to the back and left.

The putting surface is somewhat tricky. It generally slopes from back to front, but it has subtle mounds on the front left and front right that will cause fits. A significant drop off to the left of the green—between the two bunkers—will also collect any pulled tee-shot. The left side of this green generally slopes in that direction as well.

Anyone making a four here will leave the 15th satisfied.

Hole 16 - Par 5, 511 Yards

Adam Scott, PGA Tour, Arnold Palmer Invitational

During the 2023 Arnold Palmer Invitational, more players made birdie at the par-5 16th than not. This hole is one of the easiest on the PGA Tour, as it played nearly a half-stroke under par last year.

But weirdly, this hole creates more pressure for the player.

Tour pros expect to make a birdie-four here, which heightens the tension late in the round, especially down the stretch on Sunday. Should they fail to make birdie here, they’re essentially losing a stroke to the rest of the field.

The 16th at Bay Hill doglegs to the right, but not as severely as the tough par-4 15th.

Two bunkers sit on either side of the fairway roughly 300 yards from the teeing ground, and only the big bombers can clear them. To carry the trap on the right, a 345-yard carry is required.

But finding this fairway is critical to making birdie here. It’s about 34 yards wide at the 300-yard mark, an expansive fairway by Bay Hill standards.

Then, players will have a mid-to-long iron into a green protected by three sand traps and water.

The water comes into play much more so on the left side, as a pond will collect anything pulled. But a stream that flows into that pond runs about 25 yards short of the green. Any mishit short will find the water, too.

Hole 17 - Par 3, 221 Yards

Bay Hill, Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard

The penultimate hole at Arnie’s Place is an absolute brute.

A massive ‘beach bunker’ protects this kidney-shaped green, while a stream gently meanders around the back right portion of it.

The pond in front of the large bunker should not come into play, although a terrible mishit could end up there.

Two other sand traps sit beside this green: one to the front left, and one to the back left.

But the great thing about this gorgeous hole is that players tee off from an elevated tee, giving them an incredible view of this par-3. It also serves as an advantage, as the player can likely hit one club down instead of mustering the full 220-yard shot.

Nevertheless, whoever finds this green off the tee will be pleased.

The green primarily slopes from back to front, towards the beach bunker, and also towards the front left portion of the green.

Hole 18 - Par 4, 458 Yards

PGA Tour, Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard

No hole carries more prestige at Bay Hill than its finisher, the tough par-4 18th.

Surely, you have seen the highlights of Tiger Woods eliciting massive fist-pumps on this boomerang-shaped green.

But this hole has plenty more to it than its putting surface, which slopes severely towards the pond it is shaped around.

The tee shot is pretty straightforward.

Out-of-bounds lurks down the left side, but a player will only re-load if they really pull their tee shot.

Thick, gnarly rough runs down both sides of the fairway. The large pond that sits by the green comes into play 330 yards from the tee box on the right-hand side, but players rarely reach the water with their drives.

Like most holes at Bay Hill, finding the fairway is crucial here. A lay-up to the left will likely ensue if a player misses it. The rough that lines this fairway will not allow a shot to carry the water onto the green.

The second shot cannot be missed short and right, or it will find the water or perhaps even the rocks that line this green.

Three sand traps protect this green’s left and back sides, forcing the player to pick a narrow target.

It is an incredible finishing hole, one that can yield birdies. But double bogeys also lurk, making it one of the more entertaining closing holes on the PGA Tour.

2024 American Express TV coverage: How to watch the final round on Sunday

Nick Dunlap's third-round 60 tied the record for a low score by an amateur in a PGA Tour event

Getty Images

The final group in Sunday’s final round of the American Express is a pro-am, but the amateur is not just any Joe.

On the strength of a 12-under 60 on Saturday , University of Alabama sophomore Nick Dunlap sits atop the leaderboard in La Quinta, Calif. He is 27 under for the week, three shots clear of Sam Burns . If the 20-year-old can hold on, he’ll become the first amateur to win on Tour since Phil Mickelson in 1991.

“I’ve always said pressure is a privilege,” Dunlap said, who is playing the Amex on a sponsor’s exemption. “I got a great opportunity to be here, and to feel what I felt on 16, 17, 18, hopefully if I keep playing well, it is only going to magnify.”

Aside from Burns, Dunlap’s closest pursuer is former Alabama golfer and two-time major winner Justin Thomas , who is four shots back and will also be in the final group.

Dunlap, Burns and Thomas will tee off at 2:02 ET on PGA West’s Dye Stadium Course. You can check out the complete Round 4 tee times below.

2024 Masters odds: Surprising PGA picks, weekend predictions from golf model that's nailed 10 majors

Sportsline's golf model ran 10,000 simulations of the final two rounds of the masters 2024 at augusta national golf club.

pga tour final course

The weather at Augusta National is expected to be magnificent on Saturday and Sunday, which will be a welcome sight for the 2024 Masters field following windy conditions during Friday's second round. Plenty of golfers struggled to stay in contention heading into the weekend, as just eight golfers finished in red numbers. Scottie Scheffler, Max Homa and Bryson DeChambeau are tied for the lead at 6 under, with Scheffler listed as the +115 favorite (risk $100 to win $115) in the 2024 Masters odds. DeChambeau follows at +450, while Homa is +500 to round out the top 2024 Masters contenders.

Everyone else in the field has their work cut out for them heading into the weekend. Collin Morikawa (14-1), Ludvig Aberg (22-1) and Nicolai Hojgaard (25-1) are the only other golfers inside of 30-1 on the PGA odds board, so which golfers should you target with your 2024 Masters bets? Before locking in any 2024 Masters Saturday picks, be sure to  see the 2024 Masters predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine .

SportsLine's proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model is up nearly $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure's model predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned nearly $1,000.

The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm's second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022.

In addition, McClure's best bets included Nick Taylor (70-1) winning the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic. This same model has also nailed a whopping 10 majors entering the weekend, including the past two Masters. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that two rounds are in the books at the 2024 Masters, SportsLine simulated the final round 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2024 Masters leaderboard .

Top 2024 Masters predictions 

One surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 Masters: Cameron Davis, who enters Saturday tied for fifth place, stumbles down the stretch and doesn't even crack the top 10. Davis shot 3 under in friendlier conditions on Thursday, but he was able to post a solid round of even-par on Friday. The 29-year-old lacks experience playing near the top of the leaderboard at Augusta, though. 

Davis finished outside the top 40 last year in his first trip to the Masters and has finished outside the top 35 in four of his other five major tournament appearances. He only has one PGA Tour victory to his name, which came at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in 2021. The model expects the pressure and lack of experience to be too much for Davis to overcome, calling for him to ultimately fall out of the top 10 altogether. 

Another surprise: Ludvig Aberg, a 22-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 24-year-old might be one of the most inexperienced golfers in the field, but he handled Friday's conditions better than anyone. He carded the lowest second-round score at Augusta National this year, shooting 3 under to move into solo seventh place.

Aberg wrapped up his college career at Texas Tech last summer as the top-ranked amateur in the world, winning the Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus Player of the Year awards. He followed that up with a DP World Tour win in September and a PGA Tour win in November. Aberg has been rapidly climbing the world rankings, and he has given himself a chance to join elite company with a win in his first major tournament appearance this weekend.  See who else to pick here .

How to make 2024 Masters picks

The model is targeting three other golfers with odds of 50-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. Anyone who backs these longshots could hit it big. You can only see the model's Masters picks here .

So who will win the Masters 2024, and which long shots stun the golfing world? Check out the 2024 Masters odds below and then visit SportsLine to see the projected 2024 Masters leaderboard, all from the model that's nailed 10 golf majors, including last year's Masters and Open Championship .

2024 season

Our new ranking of every PGA Tour course—from best to worst

There are plenty of reasons why a course is selected to host a PGA Tour event beyond its architectural merits. Of course, the layout must sufficiently test the best players in the world, but the regional market, logistics and history all play important roles in landing a tour event as well.

That said, it’s no secret the tour travels to many of our country’s finest courses. Of the 32 events played in the United States during the 2024 PGA Tour season, 16 are currently ranked on at least one of Golf Digest's national rankings— America's 100 Greatest , Second 100 Greatest and 100 Greatest Public .

In this guide, we rank the 32 U.S. courses that will host a PGA Tour event or major championship this season, based on the scores from our 1,800 course-ranking panelists. (This list only includes events played in the U.S.—there are five international events scheduled this season. Also note that we only rank the primary course at multi-course events such as Torrey Pines and Pebble Beach.)

1. Augusta National Golf Club (Masters Tournament)

Augusta National Golf Club

Augusta, GA

  • 100 Greatest
  • Best In State

There will be no surprise with the No. 1 course on this list. Augusta National has been ranked first, second or third on our biennial America's 100 Greatest Courses ranking in each edition. The club made a significant change in the fall of 2022, lengthening the par-5 13th hole by about 30 yards . No club has tinkered with its golf course as often or as effectively over the decades as has Augusta National Golf Club, mainly to keep it competitive for the annual Masters Tournament, an event it has conducted since 1934, with time off during WWII. All that tinkering has resulted in an amalgamation of design ideas, with a routing by Alister Mackenzie and Bobby Jones, some Perry Maxwell greens, some Trent Jones water hazards, some Jack Nicklaus mounds and swales and, most recently, extensive rebunkering and tree planting by Tom Fazio. The tinkering continued in the summer of 2018 as the club lengthened the par-4 fifth by extending its back tee on newly acquired land. Soon to come, the lengthening of the famed par-5 13th.

Kapalua: Plantation

Kapalua: Plantation

Lahaina, hi.

From Golf Digest Architecture Editor emeritus Ron Whitten:  Most golf fans are familiar with Kapalua Golf Club’s Plantation Course, home of the PGA Tour's opening event each year. Located on the north shore of the Hawaiian island of Maui, the Plantation was built from open, windswept pineapple fields on the pronounced slope of a volcano and is irrigated by sprinklers pressured solely by gravity. As the first design collaboration by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, it unveiled their joint admiration for old-style courses. The blind drive on the fourth, the cut-the-corner drives on the fifth and sixth are all based on tee shots found at National Golf Links. So, too, are its punchbowl green and strings of diagonal bunkers. It's also a massive course, built on a huge scale, Coore says, to accommodate the wind and the slope and the fact that it gets mostly resort play.

Orlando, fl.

From Golf Digest Architecture Editor emeritus Ron Whitten:  I've always been fascinated by the design of Bay Hill, Arnold Palmer's home course for over 45 years (although Tiger Woods owns it, competitively-speaking, as he's won there eight times.) For one thing, it's rather hilly, a rarity in Florida (although not in the Orlando market) and dotted with sinkhole ponds incorporated in the design in dramatic ways.

I always thought the wrap-around-a-lake par-5 sixth was Dick Wilson's version of Robert Trent Jones's decade-older 13th at The Dunes Club at Myrtle Beach. Each of the two rivals had claimed the other was always stealing his ideas. But the hole I like best at Bay Hill is the par-4 eighth, a lovely dogleg-right with a diagonal green perched above a small circular pond. OK, I admit that it reminds me of the sixth at Hazeltine National, another Trent Jones product, but I don't think Wilson picked Trent's pocket on this one, as both courses were built about the same time, in the early 1960s.

One of five courses at PGA National, the Champion Course has hosted the Honda Classic since 2007. (The event dates back to 1972, though with Honda pulling out as a tournament sponsor, the event is in question going forward.) Originally designed by Tom and George Fazio for tournament play, Jack Nicklaus redesigned the course in 2014, creating the infamous three-hole stretch aptly named "The Bear Trap." Routinely one of the toughest courses on tour, The Champion is a true ball-striking test that plays a lot differently than most courses, where winning scores push over 20 under par.

Hideki Matsuyama posts final-round 62 to win The Genesis Invitational

Daily Wrap Up

Change Text Size

LOS ANGELES — Hideki Matsuyama set the Riviera record for the lowest closing round by a winner Sunday in The Genesis Invitational, giving the Japanese star another record that means far more to him.

Matsuyama rallied from a six-shot deficit with a 9-under 62 at The Riviera Country Club, punctuated by consecutive shots inside a foot, to win for the ninth time on the PGA TOUR. That breaks the record for Asian-born players he shared with K.J. Choi of South Korea.

Matsuyama finished at 17-under 267 for a three-shot victory over Will Zalatoris (69) and Luke List (68).

"I'm trying to think if that was the most impressive round I've ever seen in person," said J.T. Poston, Matsuyama's playing partner on Sunday. "It's definitely the best I've ever seen on TOUR. He had like four birdie putts that were like this -- " (Poston put his two index fingers 6 inches apart). "He hit a couple bad drives, but then recovered nicely and never even really had that long of a par putt. It was impressive."

Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, best friends playing in the final group, faded in the middle of the back nine and tied for fourth.

It was Matsuyama’s first victory since his playoff win at the Sony Open two years ago, after which Shigeki Maruyama sent him a text to remind him of a conversation they once had about becoming the most prolific PGA TOUR winner of Asian players.

Hideki Matsuyama sticks tee shot 6 inches from the hole at Genesis

This one looked unlikely at the start of a final round in which Cantlay had a two-shot lead and looked to be in total control of his game. But it was a struggle from the start for Cantlay, who couldn’t find fairways or greens or make many putts that mattered.

Cantlay missed a 12-foot birdie attempt on the easy par-5 opening hole, and then didn’t have another birdie putt until the sixth hole. He closed with a 72.

Cantlay played with Schauffele, who struggled just as much. Schauffele got back in the mix with a tough birdie on the par-4 10th and holing a bunker shot for eagle on the par-5 11th. He bogeyed the next three holes and rallied at the end for a 70.

List set the early pace. Zalatoris took the lead in the middle of the back nine. At one point there was a five-way tie for the lead heading to the tough stretch on the back nine at Riviera.

And then Matsuyama seized control with sheer brilliance. His approach to the tough 15th carried the bunker and rolled out to 8 inches.

“The second shot on 15 was probably the best shot I had,” he said through his interpreter.

On the par-3 16th, he let the club dangle as he followed the flight, unsure where it would go until he heard the crowd cheer for a shot that rolled to within 6 inches. He got up-and-down for a third straight birdie on the par-5 17th to stretch his lead to three shots, and by then, no one could catch him.

Matsuyama’s final act was a sharp-breaking 4-footer for par on the final hole, and he clinched his fist — a rare show of emotion by the Japanese star — when it dropped. His 62 broke, by one, the Riviera record for best closing round by a winner set by Doug Tewell in 1986.

Matsuyama had struggled the last two years, starting with a neck and back injury at Bay Hill in March 2022. He had only six top-10s worldwide during that stretch and fell out of the top 50 in the world.

“Ever since that injury, I was worried every week something bad might happen,” Matsuyama said. “This week I had no issue. I played without any worries. That really helped.”

The win was worth $4 million from the $20 million purse and moves him to No. 20 in the world with the entire major season ahead of him. Matsuyama now has 18 wins worldwide, eight on the Japan Golf Tour and the unofficial Hero World Challenge, also hosted by Tiger Woods.

"I was watching all day," Woods said on X, formerly Twitter. "Seeing a record breaking 62 and coming from six shots back is truly special."
