Tiger Woods opens with a 72 at Riviera

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tiger Woods started by losing his golf ball in the tree and ended by playing from the wrong hole.

In his return to Riviera for the first time in 12 years, he played reasonably well the rest of the way for a 1-over 72 that left him in the middle of the pack and five shots behind the early leaders Thursday in the Genesis Open.

More sunshine made Riviera a stout test. Tom Hoge was at 4-under 67 as the morning side of the draw was finishing. Justin Thomas had a 69 playing in the same group with Woods and Rory McIlroy (71).

Woods had five birdies to make up for his double bogey on the par-5 11th hole when he couldn't find his ball in the tree.
