2019 Genesis Open leaderboard: Jordan Spieth leads after weather-shortened first day

It was a long, soggy first round of the 2019 Genesis Open on Thursday at Riviera Country Club, and in the end, exactly zero golfers finished their first 18 holes. In a somewhat odd turn of events, players will be off at their normal start time of 6:40 am. PT to start the day, but the rain came not long after. The first groups had played just three holes, and the tournament officials actually decided to wipe out the results and restart the event later in the afternoon after rain dissipated.

When the tournament finally started, it was a familiar face who raced out in front. Jordan Spieth is 5 under after 1

2 holes and has been knocked out with Sung Kang at the end of Thursday (neither finished his first round). Due to the lengthy delay, and because Riviera only experiences about 11 hours of sunlight, there is a good chance Friday's rounds will push into Saturday and Saturday in Sunday. With more rain in the forecast, there is a chance that the event will not end on Sunday evening.

Regardless, the show will go on, and with as stars and superstars as they are at this event, it should be a great one. Here's a brief recap of everything that happened on Day 1 at Riviera. Jordan Spieth and Sung Kang (-5): Spieth found himself near the top of the first round leaderboard last week at AT & T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, too.

Hopefully for him this one takes more than that one did as he tumbled all the way to T45 by the end of the week. Regardless, it should be encouraging him to be sniffing leads two Thursdays in a row. Also, it's (incredibly) early, but it's No. 2 in the field in strokes gained around the green and No. 3 in putting

Last place – Charley Hoffman (+6): It was a rough day for Hoffman, who managed two doubles through 16 holes. Although it was not as rough as the day this club for the snake on the Web.com Tour . [19690090] Other contenders – Patrick Rodgers (-4), Jimmy Walker (-4), Tony Finau (-3): There's a long way to go but the top of this board is shaping

What did Tiger Woods do? A whole lot of nothing. Woods had a tee time just after noon local time, but he never even sniffed it. He's probably going to play his first round and at least a bit more on Friday at a place where he missed the cut in 2018.

Who had a lousy day Matt Kuchar's day was not great. While the golf had to take center stage, the rain delay allowed us to talk about his saga from the Mayakoba Golf Classic involving a fall-in caddie last fall.

State of the day: Only four times since 2005 have the events of a round been erased and restarted. The explanation for why this happened was as odd as it actually happened.

Shot of the day: Phil Mickelson made a four on the 4th 10th hole and never putted. He hit it in three bunkers but still made par. It also did not count due to the restart. Mickelson made a somewhat more traditional par next time around.

What to Watch on Day 2: It's hopefully going to be a busy one as the Thursday morning wave finishes their rounds at 7am.m. local time and we move on to the Thursday afternoon group. That same group (the one with Tiger) is likely to be doubling up (weather-allowing) as they're scheduled to go off first in Round 2, which will hopefully get underway later in the day on Friday.
