“I won, but tomorrow I will be changing my son’s diaper again. But you’ll feel much better than usual. Even if my son gets annoyed, he will just smile. He won it hard, so he feels great.”
Max Homa (33, USA) overcame the inferiority of 5 strokes and rose to the top of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Farmers Insurance Open (total prize money of 8.7 million dollars). After winning the Fortinet Championship at the opening game in September of last year, he won his second win of the season and his sixth win on the PGA Tour in four months.
In the final 4th round of the tournament held on the 29th (Korean time) at Torrey Pines South Course in San Diego, California, USA, Homa recorded 7 birdies and 1 bogey, recording 6 under par 66 strokes. Although he started in a tie for 4th place, 5 strokes behind leader Sam Rider (USA), he recorded a total of 13 under par and 275 strokes, winning the come-from-behind championship and winning prize money of 1,566,000 dollars (approximately 1.93 billion won). 먹튀검증
Four of his six wins on the PGA Tour have been won in his hometown of California. The Genesis Invitational, which won the second championship in 2021, will be held in Los Angeles, and the Fortinet Championship, which won two consecutive championships in 2021 and 2022, will be held in Napa. This tournament was also held in San Diego, California.
When Homa, a native of Los Angeles and an avid fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers of the Major League Baseball (MLB), won the championship in San Diego, the Associated Press recalled, “Homa did what the Dodgers couldn’t do last year.” This is because it is in this San Diego area that the Dodgers lost to the San Diego Padres in the National League Division Series held last October and failed to advance to the championship series.
Perhaps because of that, Homa said that he received a lot of harsh criticism from local fans who visited the venue throughout this tournament. “I like to dress up and wear a hat with the Dodgers logo on it in this area,” he said.
