Feb, 2024

According to Golfweek, Tiger Woods has decided on a caddie for his return to professional golf at the Genesis Invitational this week.

Veteran caddie Lance Bennett is Woods’ choice to loop for him at historic Riviera Country Club. This season, Bennett has been on the bag talented rookie Adrien Dumont de Chassart, who isn’t in the field this week. As of now, Dumont de Chassart isn’t in the field of the PLAYERS Championship or The Masters, so he should be available for Woods then as well.

Previously, Bennett has been on the bags of Sungjae Im and Davis Riley on the PGA Tour as well as Matt Kuchar back in 2012. He also worked with a few LPGA players such as Juli Inkster, Paula Creamer and Lorena Ochoa.

Woods spent the better part of the last decade working with Joe LaCava, who began working for Tiger in 2012, before taking up a full-time gig with Patrick Cantlay last year.

Everything is now in place for Woods tee it up once again on Thursday at Riviera.
