Round 4 Interview With:

Max Homa

Sunday May 5, 2019

MAX HOMA: Like I'm in a dream, I think. Yeah, I didn't know if this day would ever come let alone just keep my card, but it's been very validating. I've been working my tail off and I've been seeing a lot of great results, and my gosh, it's cool to do it here because I love this place as much as anyone.

Q. You're now a PGA TOUR winner. What does that do for your career going forward?

MAX HOMA: We'll see, but right now it feels like everything. It's great for my family, my fiancÈe. I'm getting married in a few months. It's just everything's good now.

I'm usually good with words, but I don't think I have any. It's a little job security and it's fun. I got to do it alongside one of my best friends in the world. Man, that felt very, very good.

Q. I thought really the key to the back nine, you birdied 10 and 11 and then you make three five foot par putts at 12, 13 and 14. That was kind of you didn't lose any shots there, you built your lead. That was huge.

MAX HOMA: Yeah, that was huge. The putt on 14 was the biggest. You know, 12, 13 I was kind of in a rhythm there. And 14, played it poorly with my wedge shot and had five feet and get the horn. So not ideal trying to get your first win having to wait about an hour to hit that putt. I kept telling Joe out there, it was weird, I was nervous, I felt like I was going to throw up half the way, but my hands did not act like that. I felt like everything was just settled perfectly and I just had to control my stomach.

Q. This was the season where I think you missed six cuts in a row and then 10th at AT&T. What was your attitude coming in here this week?

MAX HOMA: Yeah, a lot of the missed cuts came in the fall and just kind of I was inconsistent on the Web last season. I knew my good golf was really good, but I just couldn't sustain it. So once I started the wraparound I didn't make the cut at Hawaii or whatever, but I started hitting it well, started driving it well. I've been playing quite well since Phoenix. Gosh, thinking back to that, I Mondayed into Phoenix, so I've been playing quite well, driving it great and that's usually my bugaboo. Got out here this week and I've always loved this golf course and I knew it set up for me if I can hit the driver well, and I hit it well enough and then obviously rolled it pretty good, too.

Q. So win, the money, FedExCup points, now 35th in the standings.

MAX HOMA: Holy cow.

Q. So many things have changed on your schedule right now.

MAX HOMA: Yeah, that's going to be the first time I could choose my schedule. I usually just go where they tell me to go. It's great for my family. My fiancÈe, we're getting married in November. That takes a little pressure off that. It's all good, man. I worked hard to get here and it feels good to know what this feels like.
