"We could all see how bad I was driving it, and I was able to clean that up a little bit", Woods said.
Riviera's 10th hole is often described as the best short par 4 on the planet, with architect George C. Thomas giving the PGA Tour stars at the Genesis Open a variety of options on the 315-yard gem.
"So the old yardage books are out the window", Woods said. As a whole, Schneiderjans' game has been strong this season, as he ranks 10 in scoring average at 69.8. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. The greens have gotten more pin locations than I remember; they've added a few sections around here.
Woods opened his 2018 campaign with a 23 place finish at Torrey Pines last month, and says the new generation of players will still be intimidated seeing his name on a leaderboard. Woods replied it was in 1992, when he was 16. In last year's tournament, Thomas placed 39.
It was two years ago, when he got off to a slow start his second year on tour, that he cashed in on an offer from Jack Nicklaus to call if he ever needed anything. "For a while there that wasn't the case". So, the more tournaments he plays, the higher his and everyone else's expectations will elevate. For instance, more than one tour player's golf ball has been completely swallowed by the giant trees on the long par-5 11th.

The team batting 1st has won 19 games, while the team bowling first has also won 19 times . It was Jasprit Bumrah who dismissed the skipper to give India the first break through.
You wait an age for a journeyman to end their PGA TOUR title drought, and then two come along at once! 144 players will compete at PGA National Resort & Spa in the tournament that comes with a $6.6 million purse. In three events this year, Johnson has finished in the top 10 of all three including a win and a runner-up finish.
Woods doesn't have an answer for his struggles at Riviera. "It's very simple. It's just one of those weird things. This is just a golf course that you get excited to go and play".
"But also, I don't want to play too much".
Woods said he was pleased with his performance at the Farmers Insurance Open, but he realized he needed to work on his performance off the tee. Thomas recalls being nervous the first time he met Woods on the back of the practice range at TPC Sawgrass in his rookie season.
"Be able to go at it full bore again", Woods said. "Even with not having my best stuff, I felt like I still should have been a lot closer". Because it's more stout, it doesn't have much play. In the weeks leading up to his most recent return in the Bahamas, Woods played with Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Daniel Berger and Dustin Johnson.
"It'd be a great sign if I do play", Woods told reporters at Riviera, "And I think it'd be a smart sign if I don't play". That's different than it used to be.
