Max Homa Witb Genesis

Max Homa claimed his second PGA Tour victory at the Genesis Invitational with the help of a new Scotty Cameron putter.

Despite that agonising three-foot missed putt on the 72nd hole, Homa had a brilliant week on the greens at Riviera.

He recently swapped out his Scotty Cameron T5W, which had been in his bag for about two years, for a new Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11.5 model. Across the four rounds he ranked seventh in strokes Gained: Putting and third in the putts per GIR stats.

Another key to the American’s success was his stellar play from the tee. Using his Titleist TSi3 driver he ranked second in Stroked Gained: Off the Tee.

Homa also carries an older TS3 3-wood and a fresh TSi2 7-wood at the long end of his set. His irons of choice are the Titleist 620 MB blades.

Perhaps Homa’s most memorable highlight from the tournament will be the brilliant chip shot he hit when he found his ball nestled against a tree on the first playoff hole.
