In a week when many golfers have turned to the Web.com Tour to find their next big star‚ Max Homa has put on quite a show. After a dramatic week in the Florida Open‚ he won the Wells Fargo Championship and a PGA Tour title. Homa's confidence has been steadily building since he gave up his popular podcast to focus on his career. In a grueling Wells Fargo Championship‚ he showed his best golf and claimed victory by two strokes. The weather was a factor as well. The rain often blankets the D.C. metro area‚ so the steady downpour on Sunday gave the course extra heft. The gloomy weather lent itself to Homa's round‚ which had major championship undertones. The three-perfect-shot birdie at the par-five opening hole set the tone. From there‚ Homa poured in three consecutive putting shots‚ one for par and one for birdie.

The rain dominated the course‚ and that added heft to Max Homas
round. The Washington metro area is often plagued by rain‚ and this one was no exception. The steady downpour gave Homa's round major championship undertones. In addition to a nine-foot par putt on 11 at the eleventh hole‚ Homa poured in a seven-footer on 12 and a 13-foot birdie on 15 to win by two strokes. The former college student was two shots back before making the turn. Homa birdied the difficult opening hole and bogeyed the second. He then double-bogeyed the par-five second hole and double-bogeyed the fourth hole‚ but he recovered and birdied the next four holes to take a three-shot lead with three holes left.
Homa's confidence is sky high
Max Homa's recent turnaround from the ashes of his off-course woes is on full display in the Wells Fargo Championship. After winning the PGA Championship at Southern Hills‚ the Canadian finished sixth in the Presidents Cup standings and won the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. After a year off‚ Quail Hollow welcomed the event in style with a saline-filled course. In a day of intense competition‚ Homa and Bradley had a seesaw finish over five holes. But‚ the youngster made his intentions clear with a three-shot birdie on the opening hole. When Bradley double bogeyed the par-5 second‚ Homa held a one-shot lead. After a birdie on the par-4 14th‚ Bradley double bogeyed the par-5 second‚ and Homa finished with a birdie on the par-five fourth.
