2020 Genesis Invitational tee times, pairings: When Tiger Woods, field start Round 1 on Thursday

A loaded field means big-time featured groups this week at the 2020 Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club. 

Obviously, any group Tiger Woods is in is going to be monster (shout out to last year when Rory McIlroy said Tiger gives up two shots a tournament because of the circus always following him around), and he’s grouped with another top-10 guy in Justin Thomas as well as his pal, Steve Stricker.

Speaking of McIlroy, he’s in a monster group of his own with Patrick Cantlay (my pick this week) and two-time winner Dustin Johnson. Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson (both multiple-time winners here) get the No. 2 player in the world (as of this week), Brooks Koepka.

All of these are astoundingly compelling, and they’re not the only great threesomes, either. I listed a few more of the greats below with a link to all 120 tee times in the field on Thursday morning at Riviera.
