Max Homa rallied from a devastating missed putt on No. 18 to win The Genesis Invitational in a playoff on Sunday afternoon.
The 30-year-old California native beat Tony Finau in a playoff on Sunday afternoon. Homa now has two PGA Tour victories, with this one coming at Tiger Woods’ tournament.
Homa beat Finau in a playoff after missing a birdie putt to win the tournament outright on the 18th hole. He had a three-foot birdie putt for the win that lipped out of the cup.
This was pretty devastating:

Homa didn’t let the missed birdie putt affect him mentally, though, as he stayed strong and beat Finau in a playoff.
Aaron Rodgers – who, like Homa, attended the University of California-Berkeley – was a proud alum on Sunday evening.

Homa had a pretty great quote following his win, too.
“Been watching this tournament my whole life. It’s why I fell in love with golf … I was too scared to talk to Tiger the other day but he’s forced to talk to me now so it’s gonna be pretty awesome,” the California native told CBS Sports.
