PGA TOUR: Genesis Invitational odds, tips, predictions, date, course guide, prize money and how to watch

The PGA TOUR's third Signature Event of the year will see the world's top players tee it up at the Riviera Country Club for the Genesis Invitational.

The tournament was first held in 1926 and has been contested every year since 1944 under various guises and is now best known as the Genesis Invitational.

It's notable for being the first professional tournament of Tiger Woods in 1996, when the future major winner made a hole-in-one.

The tournament is a designated Signature Event for the 2024 season and will attract a stellar field. The tournament will be without its defending champion, however, following Jon Rahm's defection to LIV Golf.
