Homa closes with 65 to win Fortinet
NAPA, Calif. (AP) Max Homa's decision to give up his popular and often comical golf podcast to concentrate on his game already is paying off.
Homa holed out from the rough from 95 yards for eagle on the par-4 12th to start a back-nine comeback and added three birdies for a 7-under 65 and a one-stroke victory Sunday in the season-opening Fortinet Championship.
"I had full control today," said Homa, who saved par out of the sand three times. "I had a really good warmup, hit my wedges really well. The only bogey I made was going kind of right at it, so just felt like I had good control. It just feels really nice."
