Tiger Woods made his 2023 golf debut at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. this week, sinking three key birdies to finish two-under par after round one of the Genesis Invitational.

The 82-time PGA Tour winner wasn't as sharp playing Friday in round two. Woods shot three-over in the second round, and now sits 10 strokes off tournament leader Keith Mitchell.

Woods is tied for 67th place, with round two play in progress for a little less than half the field. But a lot can change in 18 holes, and the Genesis leaderboard promises to be in flux throughout the second day.

Here's a look at where Woods stands and what the projected cut line is at Riviera before the weekend:

When does Tiger Woods tee off today?

Woods teed off this morning at 7:24 a.m. PT (10:24 a.m. ET).

Joining Woods at Riviera on Friday are two top 10-ranked golfers in the world, Rory McIlroy (No. 2) and Justin Thomas (No. 7), which made it a star-studded grouping to follow.

Rory finished two-under on the round and sits tied for fifth place on the leaderboard with a score of six strokes under par through the first two rounds.

Thomas wasn't as clean. Like Woods, he shot two-over part in round two and sits tied for 36th on the leaderboard with a combined score of one-under through two rounds.

Where can I watch Tiger Woods today?

The Golf Channel and Peacock will broadcast and stream the second round of the 2023 Genesis Invitational on Friday.

Streaming coverage on the Golf Channel is all day while Peacock's begins at noon and concludes at 6 p.m. PT.

What is the cut line at the 2023 Genesis Invitational?

The 132-player field projects to have a cut line of even par. Tiger Woods sits one stroke below the projected cut line at Riviera.

The cut line is more likely to move to a shot under par (-1) on Friday than regress to one-over par, according to reports.

Some of the world's best players climbed up the leaderboard on the first day at Riviera, including Jon Rahm, Max Homa and Collin Morikawa -- currently the three favorites to win the tournament over Mitchell.
