48-year-old ‘golf emperor’ Tiger Woods passed the cut at the Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars), a special tournament on the PGA Tour.

Woods lost 3 strokes in the 2nd round of the tournament held at the Riviera Country Club (par 71, 7322 yards) in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, California on the 18th (Korean time) and went to the weekend round with a total of 1 over par 143 strokes. On the first day, he hit 2 under par with a long shot of 338 yards and a birdie in 3 holes in a row at the last minute.

Woods, who limped and took a difficult step at the Open in July last year, is poised to continue the 4th round as a host in this tournament he hosts. In an interview after the tournament, Woods said, “I wanted to show a good performance in the tournament I hosted.”

With 82 victories, tied for the most on the PGA Tour, including 15 majors, Woods conquered numerous courses on which he played, and even set records for some courses. Of course, after he was injured in a horrific car accident two days after finishing this event in 2021, his schedule was all messed up, but he’s clearly on his way to winning and breaking new records.

For Woods, Riviera Golf Club has as special memories as Ben Hogan’s winning record, so he is participating in this tournament for the 15th time, even if it is forced. Here’s a look at how Woods has performed in his last 14 contests. For reference, Riviera has hosted this tournament 59 times, starting with the LA Open in 1929.

In his last game, Woods finished second twice (1998-99), finished in the top 10 4 times, finished in the top 20 9 times, and passed the cut 10 times. There were 3 miscuts and 1 withdrawal.

1993: Miss Cut
Woods, who also played in the invitational the following year, was a year older and slightly taller, but shot 74-78 for a total of 152, also seven shots short of the cut.

In his first appearance since his T-20 pro debut, he shot a 2-under-par 69 on the final day for a total of 3-under-par 281 and finished in a tie for 20th. That year, Masters champion Nick Faldo won by three strokes with 272 strokes from second place.

1998: Second place in overtime
Riviera hosted the US Senior Open at the end of 1998, which was held at Valencia CC. Woods finished tied with Billy Mayfair with a 12-under 272 with scores of 65-66 over the weekend’s two games. On the first hole (18th) of the extension, Woods missed the fairway and lost by bogey. This was the only overtime loss.

1999: T-2
The venue returned to the Riviera, after Woods won the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines. After finishing the third round with a bogey-free 65, he entered the final round two strokes behind leader Ted Triva, but failed to make several birdie chances. In the end, he missed the birdie on the last hole and finished with a two-stroke gap to champion Ernie Els, who scored 270 at 14 under par with 12 under par, and tied for second place with Tribar and Davis Love III.
