“I saw $18,000 in a year out here,” Homa explained the struggles he had to go through to make on the Tour. He further explained that since he has struggled to make cuts and get into the Top 10, he knows how to control his emotions after getting a lead.

“I know what bad is,” Homa added. “And my bad today was going to be making a boat load of money and moving along to PGA Championship in two weeks with a good chance to win.”

Although last week went in favor of him, it hasn’t been like that at the beginning of his career. Homa has missed cuts more than he has made to the final rounds in the first few years since his debut. In 2017, he has only made $18,008 from the Tour, the lowest he has earned in his career.

Turned professional in 2013, Homa had big hopes for his future as a golfer. Although he has won four on the PGA Tour and 2 on the Korn Ferry Tour, he has not won a major. However, he hopes to win the upcoming PGA Championship as he is in good form now.
