Genesis Invitational format and rules: Is there a cut?

The Genesis Invitational represents the third signature event of the year, but unlike the previous two signature events with limited fields and no cuts, the Genesis Invitational is set to implement a cut after 36 holes of play.

The top 50 players and ties in this 70-man field will advance through to the weekend at Riviera Country Club, along with any player who finds themselves within ten strokes of the leader following the completion of play on Friday.

Genesis Invitational: 2024 Prize purse and winner's share

The purse for the Genesis Invitational is set at a massive $20 million in 2024 with the champion at Riviera on Sunday set to take home the $4 million winner's share; right around 20% of this week's overall purse. As was the case with both The Sentry and the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the $20 million that is up for grabs at this year's signature events is amongst the biggest purses on offer this season.
