The Genesis Invitational
Game Changing Moments – Tiger’s debut in 1992
Tiger Woods’ connection with Riviera is a natural one. It’s an hour away from where Woods was born in Cypress, California. As a kid, he attended the Los Angeles Open at Riviera with his father. Most notably, it was where he made his first PGA TOUR start as a 16-year-old amateur.
Game Changing Moments – the first paycheck
At the start of the 1962 PGA TOUR season, Jack Nicklaus was no stranger to professional tournament golf. Prior to the ‘62 season, Nicklaus had teed it up in 19 events over the previous five seasons. The Los Angeles Open in early January was his first start of the new campaign.

Babe Didrikson Zaharias was one of the greatest athletes of the 20th century and arguably one of, if not the greatest female athlete of all time. Born in 1911, Mildred Ella Didrikson was given the nickname Babe after drawing comparisons to Babe Ruth and the way the two athletes dominated the sports world.
