Max had a very solid 2020, posting four top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour. This built upon a breakthrough year in 2019 where he won the Wells Fargo Championship, 3 weeks before his wedding.
He continued his climb up the rankings in 2021 with wins at The Genesis Inviatational and Fortinet Championship, ending the year 34th in the world. Max won again in 2022 at Wells Fargo.
Max is also famous on twitter for ‘roasting’ his twitter followers golf swings and gets called The PGA Tour’s Twitter King. It all began when a twitter follower tweeted him asking him to ‘Roast my golf swing like you’re Gordon Ramsay roasting food”. Ever since then requests have flooded in and amusingly, he doesn’t show much mercy! Fellow professionals Justin Thomas and Eddie Pepperell have also been on the receiving end.
Max got married in May 2019 and it was his 30th Birthday in November 2020. It was no surprise Homa bagged another win in 2021 having reached that landmark age.
Pressure Performance Analysis
Both Homa’s Korn Ferry Tour victories were via final round charges from off the pace and four of his PGA Tour wins were converted from behind. He is best supported from slightly behind the leaders. His Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set to ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.
✅ Trailed Justin Lower by 1 shot at the Fortinet Championship. Shot 68 to win by 1 shot, with a bit of help from Danny Willett who 3 putted from around 5ft on the last.
✅ Came from 2 shots behind at the Wells Fargo Championship to win by 2 shots with a 68.
❌ Began the final round of the Phoenix Open 3 shots behind Sahith Theegala. Shot 71 to finish 14th, an average to poor showing.
✅ Came from 2 shots behind at the Fortinet Championship to win by 1 shot with a 65.
❌ Began the final round of the Valspar Championship 1 shot behind the leaders. Shot 74 to finish 7 shots behind Sam Burns.
✅ Began the final round of the Genesis Invitational 2 shots behind Sam Burns and shot 66 to reach a playoff with Tony Finau. He missed a 3ft putt on the 18th for birdie to win without a playoff but did well to compose himself to defeat Finau in the playoff.
❌ Began the final round of the American Express joint leading with Si Woo Kim. Shot 76 - a whole 12 shots worse than Kim and 16 shot worse than Patrick Cantlay! Worst score out of the top 40 that day.
➖ Started the final round 3 shots behind at the 2020 Genesis Open, shooting 70 to maintain 5th place, 3 shots behind eventual winner Adam Scott.
✅ Homa’s made his breakthrough win at the Wells Fargo Championship where he entered the final round with a tie for the lead with Joel Dahmen and Jason Dufner. It was the first time he had held at least a share of the lead on the PGA Tour and he shot a 67 to finish 3 shots ahead of Dahmen. Afterwards, Homa accredited that performance to his experiences winning on the Korn Ferry Tour in previous years.
✅ He came from 7 shots back on Sunday to win the Rust-Oleum Championship by one shot, with a final round 67.
✅ He started the final round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am 2 shots back and shot a 63 to win by a stroke.
