The tour’s new initiative is majorly focused on a player’s brand ranking and how he promotes the game positively. A lot of other factors also make up the criteria, which involves popularity on google search and the number of mentions a player gets across media channels. 

This is solely focused on players who promote their game through social media. Max Homa had a couple of reactions to the tour’s new initiative since the bonus prize pool is a lucrative amount. The 30-year-old is one of the top tour pros who’s extremely active on Twitter, and fans thronged to his handle to witness his reactions. 

Max Homa saw the PGA Tour’s new initiative and instantly made a reaction post about it on Twitter. It was everything we expected from him. Homa posted a GIF to express his feelings about the new player impact initiative, and it was spot on! 

But the two-time PGA Tour winner did not stop there. He felt the urge to post his opinion about the number of tour pros who will now facilitate their social media handles to stand a chance at winning a share of the bonus pool.
