Max Homa Wins Wells Fargo Championship

POTOMAC, Md. — Max Homa braved the elements all week at TPC Avenel Farm with solid play, wet conditions outlasting Keegan Bradley, firing a final round 68 for a two-shot victory in the Wells Fargo Championship. Homa’s 322-yard drive on the 72nd hole found the fairway and a routine par closed the deal. After tapping in for his fourth career victory, Homa and his wife, Lacey, announced they were expecting their first child on Mother’s Day.

“Sometimes my life feels too good to be true,” he said. “This was one of those cases. It was cool, you know, having the perspective of knowing whether I won or didn’t win, I’m going to have a little boy with my beautiful wife.”

Homa, two shots behind Bradley to start the day, rallied to win his second at the Wells Fargo Championship (’19). He also won earlier in the fall wrap around portion of the season to became one of five players this season with more than one win. Homa’s 8-under 272 total was enough to win by two shots over Bradley, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Cameron Young.

Rory McIlroy also shot a final round 68 on Sunday to finish solo fifth at 4-under. “Had my chances,” said McIlroy. “Played the last eight holes 1 over, which whenever you give yourself a chance and got within three, obviously not the way you want to finish. But played well. Some of those pin positions on the back were tricky and tough to get close to.”

Keegan Bradley was disappointed with his performance on Sunday, “I didn’t play my best golf today,” said Bradley. “It was choppy, and then I had a couple of good stretches, but I had a chance there at the end. So I’m proud of that aspect of it, but I’m pretty bummed.”
