Twitter users and Max Homa go back-and-forth with verbal exchanges

Max Homa is an avid user of Twitter and so are other millions of people who live in the United States. Recently, a user named “poof_taylor” sought an opinion from Homa after his friend birdied a hole using a mulligan.

A mulligan is not a sweet sight in golf as it is basically erasing a stroke if you made a bad shot. As expected, Max Homa gave a “thumbs down” to this, but another user asked him about his take on aces in par-3 holes. 

“Holes in one* don’t count to ur resumeé however drinks still need to be bought for everyone at the bar,” Homa replied to the user by correcting his statement. However, another user figured that Max Homa misspelled “resume,” and pointed it out. 

This led to Homa responding to the user saying: “Thank u. My apologies but I’m unfamiliar with the word cuz I’ve never had to use one #flexing.” This response had a lot of fans disappointed with Homa’s attitude. A lot of them tweeted about the same, but Homa did not stop from making witty replies.
