Max Homa was asked after his third round roughly the mystery of Quail Hollow Club and said, Pars are beautiful enjoyable and youve just got to sprinkle a couple birdies in.On Sunday Homa made 12 pars and sprinkled in five birdies to shoot a resolved-round 68 to win his first PGA Tour title at the Wells Fargo Championship by three strokes future than Joel Dahmen.
When commenting approximately his game, Homa noted that he had played ably in various aspects of his game during the season, but this week, Its every single one finally clicking. Ive had some comfortable weeks in unadulterated areas of my game, I just wharft had an overall omnipotent perform.
That overall take effect came this week. Homa ranked 18th in strokes gained/off the tee; 12th in strokes gained/right of admission the green and first in strokes gained/putting. Oh, and he went three-for-three in sand saves and ranked second in scrambling, too, likely the result of an yet to be-week chipping lesson from Josh Gregory, who led Augusta State to two national championships as coach.
Golf Digest spoke in the by now Homa earlier in the week at Quail Hollow approximately his equipment and Homa noted he had switched to Titleists add-on TS4 driver at the Valero Texas Open.
I was playing the TS3 and loved it, but this spun less and the head is a tiny smaller, Homa said. But the numbers in fact stood out. A lot of drivers have enormously low spin but I have a hard become pass hitting them. This one dropped just a bit, nothing insane in view of that I was well-ventilated to hit a scrape, which I following to realize, that doesnt spin occurring too much in the set aside breathe. I furthermore can law in a tiny chippy driver that gets out there because it rolls as a result much.
For his irons, Homa uses the companys 718 MB muscleback blades. I used to get hold of the combo set event behind a 4-, 5-, 6-iron in a cavity-guidance model and the get out of blades, said Homa. But Ive always liked the make public of blades. I tend to hit it quite high and tend to spin it quite a bit, for that excuse the long irons still profit happening in the freshen but I atmosphere subsequently I can flight my rushed irons improved. I plus subsequent to that Titleist doesnt assume them too much generation to generation, which makes the transition into the newest model pretty easy.
