PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. — Vincennes golfer Adam Schenk topped Tiger Woods and posted a better score than nearly the entire field at The Genesis Invitational on Thursday, forging a tie for second place with a 4-under-par 67.
It was the best first-round showing for Schenk in his third year on the PGA Tour, who played the first 13 holes in 5-under and was alone in second place before a bogey stalled his ascent up the leaderboard. Scott Stallings, who was also at 4-under, still had holes to play Thursday evening and may drop Schenk to third by the end of the round.
Matt Kuchar claimed the first-round lead with a 7-under score.
Schenk's birdie putts were five feet on the par-5 first, nine feet on the par-3 sixth, 14 feet on the par-4 ninth, two feet on the par-5 11th and 14 feet on the par-4 13th. His bogey came on the par-3 16th.
Woods, who has never won at the Riviera Country Club, was at 2-under and in a tie for 16th place
Schenk has the first tee time today, 9:45 a.m. EST, on the 10th hole with Indiana native Patrick Rodgers and Joel Dahmen.
