Max Homa carded a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-am on the host course, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The Berkeley product is 4-for-8 this season and sits 80th in the FedExCup standings thanks to a T6 at the Sony Open. Today's effort is notable because it equals his career low on the PGA TOUR. Granted, this is just his 18th start, but that fact is better than any alternative. Homa hit 13 greens in regulation and buried seven birdies, including an eight-yarder from just off the putting surface at the par-4 13th. His only miscue was a bogey-5 at 11. Up next in his rotation is the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club.

Max Homa concluded his week in the Sony Open with a final-round 1-under-par 36-33=69 to secure a top-10 finish at 12-under 268.

This goes in the books as the first top 10 of the 2014-15 season for Homa, and the second of his career. He had to battle to earn his result, as he squared two bogeys and settled for 10 pars on his first 12 holes. He finished by circling birdies on three of his final six holes, all from inside of seven feet. He will move from 99th in the FedExCup standings to inside the top 55.

Max Homa blitzed Waialae Country Club for a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the Sony Open to take control of the clubhouse at 11-under 199.

The round was the lowest of Homa's career and featured six birdies, one eagle and one bogey. He began his day on the 10th hole with an 18'7" birdie and answered it with another on he par-3 11th. After a bogey on the par-4 13th and a birdie from 18'10" on the par-4 15th, he provided the real highlight of his round when he holed out for eagle from 120 yards on the par-4 16th hole. He added a trio of birdies on the front nine, his back, to end the afternoon. While Homa isn't technically a rookie, 2014-15 is his first full season on the PGA TOUR. This is easily his best chance to win a PGA TOUR event.
Jan 17 - 8:17 PM

Max Homa showcased his upside over the fall and will enter 2015 ranked 91st in the FedExCup standings.

Homa signed for three top 45s in five attempts while ranking a lowly 212th in driving accuracy. The University of Cal product possesses a lot of potential, and will surely pop up near the top of leaderboards all season long. Homa is still young, just 24 years old, so gamers should expect an up-and-down 2014-15 season.

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 Frys.com 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.

Max Homa sits 4-under-par 72-68=140 at the midpoint of the Frys.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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.

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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com Tour regular season money list. This was just his sixth career start on the Web.com Tour.

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.

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 Web.com 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 Web.com Tour cuts this year, amassing $3,380 to date. It appears that total will take a big jump at Kinderlou Forest GC this week.

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 Web.com Tour via the Web.com 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.

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 Web.com Tour, so expect him to fight for a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card there if this week doesn't go as he hopes.
