Max Homa wins fourth PGA TOUR title at Wells Fargo
Forgive Max Homa if he was a little emotional Sunday. He and his wife Lacey recently found out that they would be having their first child, and then he went out and won the Wells Fargo Championship for the second time and earned his fourth PGA TOUR win. “I feel like life’s good,” Homa said. “I’ve got a good life, and I’m playing some good golf.” It was the fourth TOUR win for the 31-year-old Homa and his second this season following a victory at the Fortinet Championship in September in Napa, California. On Sunday, Homa battled the cold, wet conditions better than anyone in the field and finished with a final-round, 2-under 68 to win by two shots over Matt Fitzpatrick, Cameron Young and Keegan Bradley. Homa moved up 14 spots to No. 6 in the FedExCup standings after picking up 500 points. “Sometimes my life feels too good to be true and this is one of those cases,” Homa said.
