Tiger plans to add Genesis Open to 2018 schedule

Powered by National Club Golfer

Tiger Woods hopes to head to Riviera in February, according to reports.

The Tiger Woods 2018 schedule will include the Genesis Open on the PGA Tour in February, according to a report from Golfweek.

The American publication claims a source “with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed Woods’ plans”, though the source “was not authorised to speak publicly”.

After finishing in a tie for 9th in his latest comeback at the Hero World Challenge, Woods’ upcoming schedule was immediately on the mind of golf fans across the globe.

Speaking after his final round at Albany Golf Club, Woods said: “We’re going to sit down here and we’re going to figure out what’s the best way for me to build my schedule for the major championships.”

Woods has a lifetime exemption at The Masters as a former champion, while 2018 marks the last of his 10-year exemption at the US Open.

The Open Championship offers exemption to past champions up to the age of 60, while the PGA Championship also offers lifetime entry.

When pressed on the matter, Woods added: “Play enough, but don’t play too much.”

This time last year, Woods followed up a 15th-place finish at the Hero World Challenge by ambitiously announcing he would play four tournaments in five weeks.

He managed to play the Farmers Insurance Open, where he missed the cut, before heading to the Dubai Desert Classic, where he withdrew after an opening-round 77

That was the last we saw of him in competitive action until December.

Woods is expected to add another appearance at Torrey Pines, the Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational between now and Augusta.
