Genesis Invitational Power Rankings
Scottie Scheffler +750
Since the beginning of December, Scottie Scheffler has played five events on the PGA Tour. In those five tournaments just mentioned, Scheffler has accumulated five top six finishes, including a third place result at last week's 2024 Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Scottie Scheffler also checks the box for me when it comes to previous event/course history. Since 2021, Scheffler has played the Genesis Invitational three times. In the three events just noted, Scheffler accumulated three top 20 finishes, including a seventh place result in 2022.
Rory McIlroy +850
Rory McIlroy has accumulated three top seven finishes in his last five tournaments played (DP World and PGA Tours combined), including a win at the 2024 Hero Dubai Desert Classic three weeks ago.
Similar to Scheffler, McIlroy has posted quality results at the Riviera Country Club in the past. McIlroy finished fifth at the 2020 Genesis Invitational.

Max Homa +1600
Homa has accumulated two top 14 finishes in his last four events played on the PGA Tour, including a 13th result at the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open.
It is also noteworthy that Max Homa always seems to play well in his home state of California. I fully expect that trend to continue this week.

The talented Australian arrives at this week's event in rather good form. Day has accumulated three top 11 finishes in his last five tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a sixth place result at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
