Tiger Woods is back on the course this weekend at The Genesis Invitational in California. Woods just wrapped up his opening round at the Riviera Country Club.

Overall, it was not a bad day for Tiger. He finished up at -2, shooting a 69. That is five strokes off the pace of leader Matt Kuchar, whose first round 64 leads the way.

Four players are tied for second place at -4. Nearly a dozen golfers who tied for sixth place, three back of Kuchar.

Without a doubt, Woods' best moments of the afternoon were his two scoring holes where he took time to honor Kobe Bryant. He eagled the first hole from 24 feet, 8 inches away--a fitting tribute for Kobe. Woods also acknowledged Bryant after a birdie on No. 8.

You can see in the second video below that the flag on the eighth hole is purple and gold for Kobe.

You can stick with The Spun for updates on Tiger's progress throughout the weekend. The 44-year-old golfer is preparing for the first major of the 2020 season: The Masters, which is two months away.

Tiger has some catching up to do here at Riviera, but his first day at least has him in position to have an impact on the tournament.
