Former Cal Golfer Max Homa cleans up podcast and wins PGA event

Former Cal golfer Max Homa had a podcast that was popular, funny, and really pretty good, but he had to give it up for the sake of his golf game.

The renewed focus on his job paid off in a win about 50 miles from Campus Cal when Homa claimed an individual win at the Fortinet Championship in Napa, California on Sunday.

Homa praised his renewed outlook after giving up his podcast.

“I love it,” he said, “but at one point it didn’t do me a favor to put back all the bad things that happened. It wasn’t healthy for me,” Homa said. “My game is getting to the point where it could be really good.”

Homa won for the second time and third time on the PGA Tour this year. He won at Riviera in Los Angeles in February.

“I was in full control today. I had a really good warm up, hit my wedges really well. The only bogey I did was somehow get it right, so I just felt like I had one good control. It just feels really good. “

Homa was three shots behind Maverick McNealy with seven holes remaining, but he flipped it, starting with a key hit from the rough at the 12th hole. He pocketed the 95-yard shot for an Eagle-2 on the par-4 hole and added three birdies on his round of 7 under par 65.

The key eagle:

“You want a tiger [Woods] Wait a minute, “said Homa.” He’s managed to win from everywhere. Sometimes when you put yourself in that state of mind, great things happen. “

Homa took his second title of the year and his third of his career on the PGA Tour. He won at Riviera in Los Angeles in February.

Homa, 30, followed the eagle with a birdie on the 13th hole, and he also had birdies on the 16th par-5 and the 17th par-4, sinking an 18-foot putt on the latter. He parried the par-5 in 18th place and landed at 19-under 269.

Homa won for the second time and third time on the PGA Tour this year. He won at Riviera in Los Angeles in February.
