Tiger commits to Farmers Insurance Open, Genesis Invitational

Woods will play his first tournament of 2020 at Torrey Pines in the Farmers Insurance Open, beginning January 23rd.

Woods's win at the ZOZO Championship in Japan back in October took him to 82 wins on tour equalling the record held by Sam Snead. "The fact that Tiger will have his first opportunity to set the all-time record for PGA Tour wins at the Farmers Insurance Open is truly fitting", said Century Club of San Diego CEO Marty Gorsich.

The announcement, made on his Twitter account on Thursday, wasn't exactly a surprise.

He has a history of success at Torrey Pines, winning eight times at the oceanside layout, most recently in 2013.

English Premier League Report: Crystal Palace v Arsenal 11 January
Gabriel Martinelli, 6 - nearly worked himself a chance in the final quarter of an hour but was crowded out by Palace defenders. It was there that the Arsenal captain expressed his regret and disappointment over the ill-timed lunge that saw him dismissed.

Spieth, 26, will seek to add this year's tournament championship to his list of victories, which include the 2015 Masters, 2015 U.S. Open and 2017 Open Championship. He'll be going for PGA Tour win No. 83.

The 2019 golf season was a pretty great one for Tiger Woods. This year marks the first that the Genesis has been upgraded from an Open to an invitational, reducing the field to 120 and granting the champion a three-year exemption on Tour.

Tiger joins an already strong filed which includes the likes of Rory McIlroy, John Rahm, Justin Rose, and Phil Mickelson. Areas open to the public include the Grey Goose 19th Hole, which will feature an elevated viewing deck that provides panoramic views of the course and specialty drinks including the signature cocktail, the "Torrey Breeze".
