Genesis Open Preview: Tiger Looks to Tame Riviera

This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.

I'm making a slight adjustment to the preview format this week, specifically to the "one-and-done" section, which previously centered around an "optimal" pick and "buyer beware" pick. While the latter will stick around, for now, I'm ditching the "optimal" pick in favor of a three-tier platform. The tiers will be broken into highly owned, moderately owned and slightly owned. The ownership levels are estimates, of course, but after doing this for 20-some years, I have a pretty good feel for ownership levels.

If you are mid-pack, then you could go with a moderately owned golfer and give yourself a chance to make a move without taking too much of a risk. If you are in catch-up mode, you'll likely want to focus on the lightly owned option.

This week:

Last Year:
Bubba Watson shot a final-round 69 on his way to a two-stroke victory over Kevin Na and Tony Finau.
