- Homa continues Titleist’s new TSi drivers strong start on the world’s top Tours, as well as being part of the growing trend of players carrying 7-woods on the PGA Tour. Joining the likes of Dustin Johnson and Marc Leishman, the American’s 7-wood carries 21˚ of loft and is fitted with a very heavy and stiff shaft, allowing him to attack the firm and fast greens at Riviera as well as safely finding fairways.
The 30-year-old has been using a slant neck mallet putter for a number of years now and recently switched to a prototype of the new Phantom X range from Scotty Cameron featuring the same neck and mallet head style. The change was a successful one for Homa, despite missing a short putt to win in regulation, the now two-time PGA Tour winner ranking inside the top-10 for both Strokes Gained: Putting and Putts per GIR.
Ranked T11 and T10 for driving accuracy and greens in regulation respectively over the week, Homa continues a very strong start to 2021 for Titleist golf balls on the PGA Tour. The company’s Pro V1 and Pro V1x models have now recorded four straight wins and six of seven PGA Tour events so far this year.
QUOTE: “It kind of means everything. This is legitimately my Masters. Unless you put a golf tournament at my home course at Chica, I don't think that there's a place more special to me. There's not a person in golf oddly enough who I don't know like in Tiger who's meant more to me in the game of golf.” – Max Homa.
