What an extraordinary rise for Max Homa who has won the Wells Fargo Championship with a -4 under 67 final round, Justin Rose took 3rd place. A distinguished amateur Homa won the 2013 NCAA individual title and played in the Walker Cup alongside Justin Thomas. But his professional career got off to a shaky start which saw him going back to the web.com tour. After getting through Q School again in 2017 he made only $18000 all season after making only two cuts. He said that he was streaky, very bad.
This season didnt start well either. Homa began as 836th in the World Rankings and he missed the first six cuts. He says that the improvement has been in his driving (in the week of the PGA Championship Max won the Long Drive Competition) and also his attitiude, he says he doesnt get down on himself.
He’s now won $1.42 million with this win, what a comeback. Looks like his caddie is a member of ZZ Top.
