On Monday, Woods flew in his private jet with one of those young stars, Justin Thomas, from Florida to L.A. for this week's Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club. Tiger Woods is also playing this week and has 40/1 odds to win.

The PGA Tour is heading to Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, this week for the 2018 Genesis Open. One last stat to note on Tiger: this is one of Tiger's only tournaments where he's made 10+ starts and hasn't won. Still looking for his second PGA Tour victory, and was runner-up here in 2015.

Paul Casey (DraftKings $10,200 FanDuel $11,600): On Sunday at Pebble, Casey had a run of four birdies in a row to get to -12, within 2 of the lead before a double on the par-3 7th derailed his round.

Johnson tops the betting at 5/1, which is no surprise considering the American came top of the pile past year, and was runner-up in each of the 2014 and 2015 editions.

"I think (younger players) are starting to see me as a competitor because I'm starting to come back again". He last played at Riviera in 2006, when had to withdraw because of the flu.

"I've got a lot of room for improvement and a long way to go", Woods said about managing expectations.

The American people are smart people. "We face a complex volatile and challenging threat environment", he said. Coats said the White House was receiving all relevant information needed to direct strategy.


"The name of the foundation going forward is going to be TGR Foundation", Woods said.

Woods will have to shore up his play off the tee if he's to have any chance of contending, let alone battling Johnson down the stretch.

Bubba Watson, 50/1, is a two-time champion at the event (2014 & 2016), but his form in the last couple of years has been very patchy, with his last win dating back two years ago.

The 38-year-old has four top-30 finishes, including a pair of top 10s, in six starts this season and is coming off a tie for 26th in last week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. So although I'm not going to be with the longest guys out here, I'm in the top third again and I feel like I can compete from there. Though Tiger played his first tour event as a 16-year-old amateur at Riviera, it's a track on which he has never won. McIlroy has failed to crack the top 20 in his last five tournaments on American soil.

But with his ailing back now on the mend and after finishing 23rd in his comeback at the Farmers Insurance Open last month, the Californian believes he's still got the right stuff in the heat of battle. And I want something to live in perpetuity that doesn't have to do with me. That makes this week at Riviera compelling to see if he fixed his driving woes from Torrey Pines while maintaining his sharp short game and putting. He was T2 in his first outing here last year, and although this is his first start in the United States of America this year, he's had an encouraging start to the year - finishing T5 in Abu Dhabi before a T32 in Dubai. Although he's likely to be highly-owned in tournaments, he's the top overall play on the board.

Woods then added, "It would be a great sign if I do play and a smart sign if I didn't play, " joking with reporters about his intentional ambiguity.
