On Friday at the Presidents Cup, the 31-year-old American sunk an 11-foot birdie putt to knot the 18th hole and give himself and Billy Horschel a victory by one stroke over Canadians Corey Conners and Taylor Pendrith.
Homa remarked, “I was as anxious as I could be over that putt, but it was fun. I said to my wife, “Money cannot purchase that sensation when we talk about topics that money cannot buy.
It was Homa’s second one-up victory in as many days, but he made the heroics with a 13-foot birdie putt at the 17th hole to grab a one-up lead and then his winning shot, which elicited a cheer from the Quail Hollow crowd.
“That was something I will never forget, and I will always describe how that felt to anyone who is interested in hearing about it.”
All of them fell short of that game-winning putt.
Homa won his first PGA title at Quail Hollow in 2019 after also winning at the Riviera and Napa events the previous year and the Wells Fargo in Washington this year. He successfully defended his championship last week in Napa, California, to earn his fifth PGA victory.
Homa said, “A hundred times better.”
You have captains who have achieved huge victories. Players who have won several majors are available. The top golfers on the planet are counting on you.
“To turn out and perform for them is simply nothing like a typical golf outing. I haven’t done well in my majors, but I can’t even fathom how that sensation might compare. Homa has only played in five of 13 major tournaments and had a best finish of 13th at the PGA Championship this year.
In the most important situations, success at the highest degree is what Homa defined as goals and whatnot. “And some come with trophies and all that; but, I wanted to be out here to assist represent my country and these individuals as best I could. So this is the best, in my opinion.
Homa was honoured by Davis Love, who chose him as his first captain’s pick for the US team. “No big deal. He has been performing superbly. He’s had some impressive victories,” Love remarked.
“He hit good shots each and every time he needed to. He consistently made his putts when he had to. He performed that in Napa both last week and last year. He is a powerful player. But he plays very passionately.
“It felt kind of surreal,”
Horschel was very happy to see Homa succeed. Horschel remarked, “To see this person right here execute at the end was just fantastic. “Watching him the last few holes was amazing.”
