What if I told you that there was a guy who constantly buzzed Max Homa to play a round of golf with him? What if I told you he did it for 25 consecutive days without fail? It might seem ridiculous, but it’s true! 

Armin Abdic, a Twitter user, wanted the opportunity to play a round of golf with Max Homa and he went out there and seized it. Abdic succeeded in getting a response on the very first day, but it turned out to be negative. Homa snubbed his invite citing his busy schedule. 

But they always say perseverance pays off, don’t they? Well, it turned out to be true in Abdic’s case as he finally convinced Homa to get to play golf with him. Though it took him 25 long days, the result is sweeter than everything else. The better part is that Max Homa follows Armin Abdic on Twitter, denoting that the deal is a serious one!

“Alright man. Can’t believe u made it this far but 25 is my favorite number so u win. Forreal this time. I’m astounded by ur persistence. It’s admirable and a bit weird but let’s play #golf when the season slows down!” Homa wrote in response to Abdic’s latest tweet. 

Max Homa also cheekily admitted that he’s out of excuses at this point. The PGA Tour golfer had no option but to reward the amateur’s persistence. We’re all waiting for more updates about the round of golf these two will be playing soon!
