Max Homa has his sights set on El Camaleón Golf Club for the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
Homa has made two of his four cuts in his first full season on the PGA TOUR, tying for 39th at the Open and sharing 43rd at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He is not a rookie, as he racked up too many starts prior to the beginning of this season on previous sponsor exemptions to qualify. He has never played this event before. Nov 12 - 1:45 PM

Max Homa sits 4-under-par 72-68=140 at the midpoint of the Open, six shots back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The first-time PGA TOUR member isn't eligible to be Rookie of the Year, but he's expected to contribute to the impact of the youth. He's not wasting any time at Silverado, having already buried 10 birdies, including six in today's walk. Three of them stretched 11-14 feet. He's also squared two bogeys in each round and a double bogey on Thursday, but the pieces are in place for a run on the weekend.

Max Homa will enter the 2014-15 season with his PGA TOUR card in hand and 29th in the opening reshuffle.

The young prospect has made the most of his time on the Tour and will now attempt to make it big on the PGA TOUR. The pedigree is strong with this Golden Bear as he was first-team All-American as a senior which included winning the individual 2013 NCAA Division I Championship. The sky is the limit for Homa, and gamers should keep close tabs on him this season.

With the conclusion of today's WinCo Foods Portland Open, the top 25 on the Tour money list have earned 2014-15 PGA TOUR cards.

Max Homa shared 60th place at Pumpkin Ridge today and finished comfortably at 17th in earnings thanks to a win and another two top 10s. Because he made eight starts on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, he will not qualify as a rookie in his first year with a card. However, 13 of his fellow graduates are rookie eligible. The other 24 grads (* = 2014-15 PGA TOUR rookie): *Carlos Ortiz (1st); *Andrew Putnam (2nd); *Zack Sucher (3rd); *Adam Hadwin (4th); *Justin Thomas (5th); Alex Cejka (6th); *Blayne Barber (7th); *Tony Finau (8th); Jason Gore (9th); Steven Alker (10th); Andres Gonzales (11th); *Jon Curran (12th); Derek Fathauer (13th); Cameron Percy (14th); *Daniel Berger (15th); *Jonathan Randolph (16th); *Mark Hubbard (18th); Steve Wheatcroft (19th); Ryan Armour (20th); *Byron Smith (21st); Bill Lunde (22nd); Fabian Gomez (23rd); *Roger Sloan (24th); Kyle Reifers (25th). All but Ortiz (exempt from reshuffle) will compete in the Tour Finals for opening reshuffle position.

Max Homa lit up Lakewood Country Club for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the opening round of the Cleveland Open to take the 18-hole lead by two strokes.

Homa picked off four birdies on his outward nine, then added three more coming to the clubhouse. That he is in the lead should not be a surprise to anyone following the Tour. He placed seventh at the South Georgia Classic before breaking through with the victory at the BMW Charity Pro-Am. He followed that up with a T11 in the Rex Hospital Open. It's clear that the off week didn't cool him off. His 1.462 putting average was the third best of the day.
Jun 5 - 7:32 PM

Max Homa crafted a bogey-free 8-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am to pop the top of his first Tour victory.

Homa spent much of the first part of 2014 unsuccessfully trying to earn Special Temporary Membership on the PGA TOUR. Now that he's fully devoted to the Tour, the dividends have been immediate. He preceded this week's 20-under 266 win with a solo seventh in the South Georgia Classic two weeks ago. His final lap around Thornblade Club featured an eagle and six birdies. While it's not a mathematical certainty, he's essentially earned enough money to lock up a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card by virtue of a likely top-25 finish in the Tour regular season money list. This was just his sixth career start on the Tour.
May 18 - 5:47 PM

Max Homa carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the South Georgia Classic to hold the overnight lead at 9-under 135.

There was no hope for the second round concluding before nightfall on Friday, as lengthy weather delays on Thursday rendered that impossible. The good news is that every player is at least off and running in the second round, and with a full day on Saturday and forecasts predicting clear weather the rest of the way, the tournament should conclude on Sunday. While Homa is the clubhouse leader, Carlos Ortiz has reached 5-under on his round and 10-under for the tournament through 30 holes.
May 2 - 9:03 PM

Max Homa returned on Friday morning to polish off his first round of the South Georgia Classic with a 5-under-par 34-33=67 and tied Jeff Curl and Carlos Ortiz for the lead.

Homa is fresh from exhausting his final sponsor exemption on the PGA TOUR last week in Louisiana and has wasted no time in getting to work on the Tour. The budding star seems destined for PGA TOUR success sooner rather than later, as further suggested by his six birdies to just one bogey in the opening round. He's made just two of his three Tour cuts this year, amassing $3,380 to date. It appears that total will take a big jump at Kinderlou Forest GC this week.
May 2 - 12:57 PM

Max Homa signed for a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to finish the week at 4-under 284.

At the time of his posting, he was outside the top 50 at TPC Louisiana. This was Homa's last available sponsor exemption of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, and he will come up well short of the 164 FedExCup points needed when the week began to secure Special Temporary Membership. He does enjoy status on the Tour via the Tour Q School, so the expectation is that he will now focus his attention on that circuit as a means to acquire a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. He would need to open qualify for any additional PGA TOUR starts this season. While Brooks Koepka successfully did that this week in New Orleans, Koepka needed just seven FEC points for STM. Homa's hole is much deeper, thus the strategy should be different.
Apr 27 - 11:50 AM

Max Homa will use his final sponsor exemption of 2013-14 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Players with no PGA TOUR status are allowed a maximum of seven invites in any given season. Homa has netted 114 non-member FedExCup points in his first six starts, but needs 164 more this week to qualify for Special Temporary Membership. He has status on the Tour, so expect him to fight for a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card there if this week doesn't go as he hopes.
Apr 22 - 9:41 PM

Max Homa completed 36 holes of the Puerto Rico Open in 1-under-par 73-70=143 to make the cut on the number.

The non-member connected birdies on holes 2-5 at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico in his second round on what was his inward nine to climb inside the bubble. It's his third payday in six starts this season, five of which via sponsor exemptions. Homa is one of 80 golfers with a tee time in the third round, so a second cut of low 70 and ties will fall after 54 holes. No matter what happens on the weekend, he's already in the field at next week's Valspar Championship via a sponsor exemption, but he could save it with a top 10 in Puerto Rico.
Mar 8 - 12:21 AM

The second round of the Northern Trust Open was suspended for darkness at 5:50 p.m. PT.

They played all day, but six golfers still have exactly two holes to complete. Max Homa is one of them. He's even on his round and 2-over on the tournament, so he'll need to pick up at least one stroke on the remaining par 4 at the eighth and ninth holes to have a chance to pick up his first paycheck since the Shriners. Play is scheduled to resume at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday. The third round is scheduled to begin at about 7:45 a.m. with threesome off split tees. Homa is a non-member on the PGA TOUR but he's fully exempt for the first 12 events on the Tour.
Feb 14 - 9:17 PM

Max Homa circled two eagles on his way to a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and ends the week at 10-under 274.

The eagles came on back-to-back holes for Homa, dropping a 5'3" putt on the par-5 ninth before holing out from 152 yards on the par-4 10th. In two PGA TOUR tournaments to start the 2013-14 season, he is already well on his way to assuring himself a spot in the 2014 Tour finals. Though he has no status, non-members who earn no worse than the equivalent of 200th place in the FedExCup standings qualify for the Finals. Such is the fickle nature of professional golf, he is now off to Pinehurst, N.C., to compete in the first stage of the Tour Q School at Pinewild Country Club. Much like Jordan Spieth 10 months ago, we really have no idea what the new season will look like for Homa, but he's shown immediate flashes that require our attention going forward.

Max Homa is 6-under-par 69-70-68=207 through 54 holes of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Homa is in the field on a top-10 exemption from last week's Open where he was under par in all four rounds, so he really hasn't walked off a course yet with reason to hang his head. Thus far at TPC Summerlin, he's poured in 14 birdies. Today's loop featured five birdies, the longest of which from just 11'11" at the 12th hole, but he also fanned on four tries inside nine feet, two of which leading to both bogeys on his card.

Max Homa has been added to the published field of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Homa earned an exemption into the field of 132 at TPC Summerlin with his top 10 at the Open. (He tied for ninth.) The non-member collected $135,000 and 75 FedExCup points for his effort. It was his first start as a professional.
