The Genesis Invitational Prop Bets: Can Si Woo Kim, Adam Svensson Shine at Riviera Country Club?

Sadly, there were no returns last week on our two selections. Nico Galletti did fantastically well to get through the cutline, but unfortunately stalled over the weekend. Kevin Yu dropped five shots in three holes in round two to completely undo his steady start and miss the cut.

The PGA Tour returns to California this week for the third signature event of the year, at the iconic Riviera Country Club. Tiger Woods is back as host, competing alongside the best PGA tour players in a reduced field of 70. Riviera Country Club is special, the players always rave about how much they enjoy competing there each year. It's easy on the eye, but demands a lot of the players from tee to green. It's tricky and strategic nature has made it a difficult course to crack on first visit over the years. Therefore, making course form that little bit more important this week, not necessarily good finishes, more course experience.

Below I've targeted two players to come out on top of their category.

The Genesis Invitational Prop Bets

Si Woo Kim Top Asian Player +400 Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Si Woo Kim has had a solid start to the year, he hasn't missed a cut and looks to be trending towards a big week. In his last three starts he has finished 25th, 14th and 12th last week at the Phoenix Open. His ballstriking has been superb, gaining strokes off the tee and on approach in each of his five starts this year. Si Woo at his best has always been known for his touch and creativity around the greens, and that seems to be back to it's best the last couple of weeks; ranking 11th for strokes gained around the greens in his last two starts. Si Woo has been quite a volatile player over the years and his record here sums that up. He has only ever shown up here once in eight starts and that was a 3rd place finish back in 2019. That year he was coming into the event in excellent form, where he was 4th at Pebble Beach the week before. He arrives this week in similar shape, the game is there, all he needs is a better week on the greens. He has twice finished inside the top 10 for strokes gained putting at Riviera over the years which is encouraging to see.

There are six players in the top Asian market with Tom Kim slight favorite. I don't fear anyone in this market bar Matsuyama who has been playing a bit better recently. Hideki has a decent record at Riviera with three top 10 finishes over the years. Although, he has only managed a best of T39th in his last three visits. His ballstriking has also been poor for his standards the last couple of starts. We know the upside with Si Woo, he is a four time winner with bags of ability. He will sometimes drive you crazy with his course management and decisions but he's always an entertaining watch. I expect him to do well this week.

Adam Svensson Top Canadian Player +400 Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Adam Svensson has yet to get going this year, his best finish from five starts came at the Sony Open, finishing T30th. Although, there are signs to suggest he isn't far away from a big performance. Svensson is at his best when his irons are firing and despite a quiet start to the year, he still ranks 36th for strokes gained approach. He missed the cut at the Phoenix Open last week by a shot yet still gained over a stroke off the tee. Svensson had an impressive debut at Riviera Country Club last year finishing 9th. This course hasn't been kind to debutants over the years, so for him to have such a top finish is certainly eyecatching.

He easily stands out as the best value in the Top Canadian market. Nick Taylor has missed the cut twice and finished T56th after each of his three wins. Adam Hadwin looks a bit out of sorts at the moment. Mackenzie Hughes has been underwhelming in his last couple of starts with 64th and 71st place finishes. He also has a poor record at Riviera with 32nd being his best result from five starts. That leaves favourite in the market, Corey Conners, who is coming into this event in steady form. He was 28th at the Phoenix Open, closed with a round of 66 so he will be looking to carry that momentum over into this week. On paper, Conners looks a decent fit for Riviera. He is a fantastic ballstriker with outstanding form at Augusta. For some reason it has never worked out for him here, he has missed the cut three times with a best finish of 61st in four starts. He has to be taken on, and Svensson for me looks the man to beat.

Adam Svensson First Round Leader +10000 Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

I couldn't resist chancing him in the first round leader market. Since earning his PGA Tour card back a couple of years ago, Svensson has been inside the top 10, nine times, after round one. He got off to a strong start in this event last year where he was 7th after round one. Svensson is one of those players that can catch fire at any point. Given his recent signs and his performance here last year, he looks an attractive bet in this market.

There doesn't seem to be any draw bias from what I've looked at. The wind picks up slightly in the afternoon but with warmer temperatures.

Svensson will tee off in the morning at 8:32 a.m. PST.
