The PGA Tour brings its unique form of drama to Hollywood this week and Riviera Country Club. The world’s best will tee it up on the iconic Pacific Palisades track and you can watch it before the rest of the world exclusively on PGA TOUR LIVE.

The newly-named Genesis Open boasts a field that includes 19 of the top-30 players in the Official World Golf Rankings. Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson and last week’s winner Jordan Spieth headline the star-studded field. That foursome of stars are only a few of the players you’ll be able to see in early-round coverage on PGA TOUR LIVE before the television window opens.

Also featured in the morning streams are the likes of Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia, Jim Furyk, Justin Rose, Hideki Matsuyama, Bubba Watson, Bill Haas and Justin Thomas.
