What did Joel Dahmen say?

Joel Dahmen tweeted out a post of his fan who had a tattoo saying #EndCancer. Dahmen then posed a question to Homa and mentioned that even the PIP Fund cannot buy him fans like this. The PIP Fund is a $40 million bonus prize money. 

And most probably, Max Homa is one player from those top 10 because of his social media popularity. Keeping that in mind, Joel Dahmen took a dig at Homa, to which he replied in a terrific manner.

The two-time PGA Tour champion revealed his efforts in helping to end cancer. Homa is donating to St. Jude for every birdie that he makes. St. Jude is a hospital that identifies and defeats childhood cancer.
