JUNIOR CLINIC

Sharpen your golf skills with help from the PGA TOUR's best players. On Saturday, Feb. 18, the Genesis Open is hosting a clinic for young golf fans. The free clinic will take place on The Riviera Country Club driving range. Learn from PGA TOUR pros in a small group setting and pick up tips to take your game to the next level.

Noted for its spectacular beauty and challenging design, The Riviera Country Club is recognized as one of the best courses on the PGA TOUR. The annual site of the Genesis Open, the course was designed by George C. Thomas and opened for play in 1927.

Former Golf Hall of Famer and current NBC Golf analyst Johnny Miller once said: "Riviera is definitely one of the greatest no-nonsense golf courses in the world. It requires a player to play every club in his bag and every shot in his game."

Perhaps this is why Riviera has hosted many of golf's greatest events, including the U.S. Open, PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open. Its roster of past champions is impressive and includes Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Tom Watson, Ernie Els, Fred Couples, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson.
