Seeing the picture, Homa posted about the crop on his Instagram story. Quoting the picture with a caption, in a very Homa style, the golfer said, “Claire cropped me out of the last one. Can’t be missing the cut in the tourney and the pic,” referring to how he finally made it to both. 

The iconic picture holds a dear place in Homa’s heart, as the player has talked about the incident in the past as well.

At last year’s Open Championship, in an interview, Max Homa shared his awe-inspiring experience of playing alongside Tiger Woods. Woods, the golfing veteran wasn’t able to make a cut on the tournament last year but irrespective of that, his cadence had overwhelmed Homa.

“It was crazy, especially because it was at St Andrews, the walk up 18. Unfortunately, he [Tiger] missed the cut, but walking up 18, the ovation he got was absurd. It made the hairs stand up on my neck,” Homa had remarked.
