Max Homa Facts
- Max, in his senior year (2012-13) at The University of California, Berkeley, was included in the ‘First Team All-Pac-12‘. The Pac-12 Conference is an athletic conference that operates in the Western United States, participating in 24 sports in the NCAA‘s Division I – the highest level of intercollegiate athletics sanctioned by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association – a nonprofit organization that regulates student athletics among about 1,100 schools in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico) in the United States.
- He also won the Pac-12 Championship that season which included an opening-round 9-under-par score of 61. The score broke the course record at the North Course of The Los Angeles Country Club, a golf and country club located in Los Angeles, California. It also tied the then record for the lowest round posted in the United States.
- For his performances in the 2012-13 season, Max was named in the ‘First Team All-American’ as well as the ‘All-Nicklaus Team’ by the GCAA (Golf Coaches Association of America – a non-profit, professional association of men’s collegiate golf coaches). The latter selection is named after Jack Nicklaus – a retired American professional golfer and golf course designer who is widely considered to be one of the greatest golfers of all time. Max also won the individual event of the 2013 edition of the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship.
- Legendary baseball manager Thomas Charles Lasorda aka Tommy Lasorda (who was at the helm of the Los Angeles Dodgers (Max’s favorite baseball team) from 1976 through 1996) had jokingly promised in 2017 that he would give Max a call whenever he would win his first PGA Tour event, provided that he was still alive by then. Tommy kept that promise and made a congratulatory call when Max achieved that feat by winning the Wells Fargo Championship in May 2019. Tommy passed away in January 2021 (aged 93).
- In 2022, Max won the Presidents Cup, a biennial series of men’s golf matches between a team representing the United States and a team representing the rest of the world minus Europe. He won all 4 of the matches that he played in the competition, the 2nd-best performance by an individual player – only behind Jordan Spieth who won all 5 of his matches.
- Max is known to carry 2 coins while playing, as a good luck charm. One of those coins is from 1991, the birth year of Lacey, his wife. The other coin is from 2018, when he brought home his pet dog, Scotty, a yellow labrador.
