Max Homa with Fortinet trophy

My Twofer Tuesday picks got off to a rough start this season. I had Jon Rahm (MC) and Will Zalatoris (T11). Jon apparently got sick and Will bogeyed the 15th to drop out of the Top10. I was so close!

  • Top10s: 0 for 2
  • Winners: 0 for 1

There's not much I can add to what Max Homa did. While the rest of the field struggled, Homa calmly went -5 on the final seven holes to win by one. Maverick McNealy's double-bogey on 17 ended his run at the title and will sting for a while.

But what caught my attention was not what Max said about getting his third PGA Tour win but what he said about his wife. Apparently, as pgatour.com summed it up:

Although the Fortinet was his third TOUR win, it was the first witnessed by his wife, Lacey. He joked afterward that she had only seen one top-10 finish from him, so it was about time.
Clearly such an august moment in time cannot be overlooked. Therefore I have devoted his newest Limerick Summary to this significant occasion. Congrats, Max!

The field helped him, that much is true
But Max knew what he had to do…
And do it, he did.
For his wife this was big
Since she finally SAW him come through.
