Max Homa finished 17th at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and make a quick detour. He was supposed to head home, but went to the Greystone Golf & Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama instead! 

That’s where Max Homa achieved a major milestone in his career. Homa has never recorded an albatross since turning pro in 2013, but 2021 proved to be lucky. Homa shot an albatross, or a double-eagle, like some people call it, on hole No.11 at Greystone. 

It is indeed a massive feat as an albatross is considered sacred in golf. A double-eagle is harder to come by than an ace and it is a one-in-a-million golf shot. Homa used his 3 wood and absolutely nailed the effort. 

Homa was overwhelmed with his achievement and naturally posted about it on Twitter. He even used a Kevin Garnett (retired NBA player) quote to hype it up on social media. Well, Max Homa definitely is part of a very rare club now, after having made an albatross.
