  • This year's purse is $9.3 million, with the winner's share at $1,674,000.
  • This year's tournament is hosted by Tiger Woods, who is in search of his 83rd career PGA Tour victory, which would break his tie with Sam Snead for the most in history.

  • This is the first year the event has been played as an invitational, which means a reduced field (120 players down from 144); better incentives (three-year tour exemption for winner instead of normal two); and a larger purse (up nearly $2 million compared to last year).
  • The change in status puts the Genesis Invitational on the same level as the prestigious Memorial Tournament (hosted by Jack Nicklaus) and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
