A demanding and historic route

The Riviera Country Club is an 18-hole, par 71 golf course that measures 7 yards (322 meters). It was designed by George C. Thomas Jr. et William P. Bell in 1926 and has hosted many prestigious events, such as the U.S. Open, PGA Championship ou the Presidents Cup. The course is renowned for its difficulty, with narrow fairways, deep bunkers, fast greens and signature holes, such as hole No. 6, which has a bunker in the middle of the green, or hole No. 10, a par 4 short but tricky.

A classic format and a playoff in the event of a tie

The Genesis Invitational 2024 follows a classic 72-hole format, with four rounds of 18 holes. The 70 players are divided into groups of three for the first two days, with departures in the morning and afternoon. The same groups play together in the first two rounds, with all groups playing in the same window.

A cut is made after 36 holes for the first 50 players and ties, as well as those who are less than 10 shots behind the leader. All players who make the cut are eligible to complete the tournament. For the third and fourth rounds, groups and starting times are established based on each player's total score after two and three rounds, respectively.

The winner will benefit from a two-year exemption on the circuit and an exemption for the Masters, the PGA Championship, the Players and the Sentry in 2025. In the event of a tie after 72 holes, a playoff is organized according to PGA Tour rules. The 2024 Genesis Invitational playoff format is a sudden death format, with holes 18, 18, 17 and then 18 repeated, played by qualified players. Players compete hole by hole until a winner is determined by a player with the lowest score among the remaining players.

The Genesis Invitational 2024 is an important tournament for players, who can earn points towards the world golf rankings, the FedExCup and Ryder Cup. The winner of the tournament earns 700 FedEx Cup points, as well as 70 World Golf Ranking points, with points available based on the strength of the field.
