Tiger Woods could potentially participate in his first official PGA Tour event since his 2021 car crash.
That tournament takes place next week.
Woods is actually the tournament host of the elevated event. Woods made his debut at Riviera in 1992 whilst he was still in high school.
He played on a sponsor exemption and missed the cut by six strokes. Remarkably, Woods has never won on the course that is closest to his home.
Woods has not played in an official PGA Tour event since he crashed his Genesis SUV on 23 February 2021.
The 15-time major champ, according to the police report, was driving at more than twice the speed limit in the Los Angeles hills when he crashed.
He was taken to the Harbor-UCLA Medical Centre and suffered "significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity".
Woods later revealed that there was a 50 per cent chance his right leg was going to be amputated.
He made his return to professional golf at the 86th Masters last April and made the cut but he struggled over the weekend.
Woods also missed the cut at the 150th Open Championship last July. He later described how 2022 was the "toughest" but "most rewarding" year in his illustrious career.
Tiger announces 2023 Charlie Sifford Memorial exemption...
Since 2009, an exemption has been given to a minority golfer to the Genesis Invitational.
In 2017, the exemption was re-named the Charlie Sifford Memorial Exemption in honour of the first African American to play on the PGA Tour.
This year Woods announced Marcus Byrd would receive the invite for the tournament, played over Feb 16-19.
