Wells Fargo champion Homa happy to be known for more than his tweets
Max Homa admits that prior to his three-stroke win at the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday, he was known more for his funny tweets than his golfing talent.
Homa had built up a reputation as a very funny guy on the social media platform, telling the San Francisco Chronicle back in February: “I probably have a fairly large fan base compared to what I deserve for my golf.”
But Homa no longer needs to feel uncomfortable about that disparity after his sensational win at Quail Hollow on Sunday.
With a victory under his belt, and two years of playing privileges on tour secured along with a spot in the PGA Championship, he can continue tweeting to his heart’s content.
“It’ll be nice hopefully to be known not just as the Twitter funny guy, but hopefully as a decent golfer now,” he said.
Certainly his followers on Twitter will be hoping he doesn’t stop producing tweets like this now that he’s a big shot on tour:
Had a few caddies hit me up recently hoping to team up. They heard they usually get weekends off which is apparently a great selling point

I don’t think I’d be nervous on the first tee at my first Masters. It’s always been a dream of mine to play that tournament. I’d jump right past nervous and skip straight to violently ill, unfit to be in public

Golf is even more frustrating when ur game feels good and u post a bad number rather than when u just flat out suck

Despite 6 years of Hebrew school and the completion of my Bar Mitzvah, the most Jewish I’ve ever felt came after looking at a home with extravagant Christmas lights and immediately thinking “that electric bill must be brutal”

Didn’t play well but was fortunate enough to have a stranger watch me pee into a cup after the round so it’s actually been a pretty solid day all-in-all

I don’t use a green reading book because if I did, I wouldn’t be able to blame my caddy when I missed

I’m rooting for Talor Gooch because he’s one of my best friends. I’m also rooting for him because he has a last name that makes me feel less insecure about my own
