Max Homa wins 2023 Farmers Insurance Open
January 31, 2023
For the sixth time, Max Homa of Burbank, California is a PGA Tour champion. On Saturday, Homa won the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, California by shooting a four round score of -13. He defeated 2011 PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley of Woodstock, Vermont by two strokes, and two-time major champion Collin Morikawa of Los Angeles, California by three strokes. Bradley finished up at -11. Morikawa, who won the 2020 PGA Championship and the 2021 British Open, finished up at -10.
Homa had a first round score of four-under-par 68, a second round score of two-under-par 70, a third round score of one-under-par 71, and a fourth round score of six-under-par 66.
The most notable shot Homa made on the weekend came in the third round on Friday. That is when Homa made an eagle on the par five sixth hole. At the time, Homa moved from -6 to -8. The 2023 Famers Insurance Open finished on Saturday rather than the traditional Sunday, because the PGA Tour did not not want to be on the same day as the NFL Conference Championships.
Of Homa’s six PGA Tour victories, four have happened in his home state of California. In addition to the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, the other three titles in California came at the 2021 Genesis Invitational in Pacific Palisades, before back-to-back wins at the Fortinet Championship in Napa, California in 2021 and 2022.
Homa’s other two PGA Tour wins were victories at the Wells Fargo Championship on two separate courses in two separate states. Homa won the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, and then the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship in Potomac, Maryland. The reason why the Wells Fargo Championship was in Maryland in 2022 and not North Carolina, is because Quali Hollow was already hosting the 2022 Presidents Cup.
