Golf: Bubba Watson scripts his L.A. story, winning again at Riviera even while moonlighting on the court. Riviera still has Tiger Woods’ number, though, and a piece of history is up for bid.
Greg DePalma, Jeff Shain and Pro Golf Weekly‘s Joel Cook ponder how Ted Potter Jr. held off Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson at Pebble Beach, before turning their attention to the Genesis Open at historic Riviera Country Club. Johnson is defending champion, while Tiger Woods ends an 11-year absence at a hometown course he’s never tamed.
One would be hard-pressed to find a golf course anywhere that is more aesthetically appealing than Pebble Beach, a famous golf haven basking in the beauty of the California coastline. A five-hour drive south, however, is something very close.
Greg DePalma and PSN managing editor Jeff Shain preview the Genesis Open – a new name though Riviera County Club has been a West Coast Swing staple since the 1940s. Bubba Watson is defending champion in a field that includes world No.1 Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Pebble Beach winner Jordan Spieth.
