Rory McIlroy to play in the 2018 Genesis Open
Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy announced today he is committed to play in the 2018 Genesis Open. McIlroy will join the world’s best golfers at The Rivera Country Club February 12-18. The 2018 Genesis Open will be McIlroy’s second competitive tournament at Riviera, having first played in 2016.
“I’m excited to return to Riviera for the 2018 Genesis Open,” McIlroy said. “Riviera is one of the best tests on the PGA TOUR and I’m looking forward to being back in Los Angeles this February.”
Currently the No. 10 ranked golfer in the world, McIlroy represents the incredible field that has become expected at Riviera. The former top ranked player in the world has 13 PGA TOUR victories, is a four-time European Ryder Cup Team member and claimed the 2016 FedExCup, winning two legs of the FedExCup Playoffs to earn the season-long title.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Rory back to Riviera for the Genesis Open. Adding his star power to our field is a real treat for our fans and the entire Los Angeles area,” said Mike Antolini, Vice President of Championships for TGR Live. “His commitment reinforces the Genesis Open as one of the most popular tournaments on the PGA TOUR.”
McIlroy joins defending champ and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson as early commitments to play in the 2018 Genesis Open.
