Bad News For Golfers On The PGA Tour: Max Homa Is Starting To Believe In Himself Again

On today's Pardon My Take... MAX HOMA! The Wells Fargo Championship winner joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter on today's show to discuss whether or not we should still be positive with him, grading Big Cat's golf swing, and much more. 

If you have paid attention to golf over the last couple of months, you know that Max Homa has been playing some very good golf recently. In fact, he made his first ever cut at The Masters! What has been the biggest reason for his surge over the last 12 months? The guys put their Big J hats on and got a solid answer out of Homa:

Mr. Commenter: Can we ask, like, a real question? Like a question you'd probably more likely get asked on Fore Play or any of these other, like, actual golf shows? What changed about you in the last couple of yours?

Mr. Cat: Steroids.

Mr. Commenter: Besides the steroids.

Max Homa: What changed? I don't know. I was actually a really good college player, I won a National Championship my senior year, won my conference championship, I was a good player. And when I got on tour, I tried changing some things to try to be what I thought I needed to be, and it set me back a while, and then it killed my confidence, which I already struggle with a bit.

Max Homa: And yeah, I've always had a good work ethic, and I just feel like I'm on the right track, and I'm starting to believe in myself again. And just like marrying those two things, it's been fun because I kind of feel, sounds dumb, like I know people live like their high school and college glory days, but I just feel like I'm kind of back to that, where I go to tournaments expecting to win a bit more and, I don't know, I just feel more comfortable. 

Max Homa: I don't feel… I've always struggled with being a little bit insecure about, you know, who I'm playing with or whatever. But it's starting to get comfy, like playing with Rickie [Fowler], Jason Day, and Rory McIlroy, and all these guys. I don't know, it just feels like I'm coming into my own a bit. And for about a year, year and a half, I've been feeling that. So I'm just trying to let the golf kind of follow that lead.

How can you not root for Max Homa? What a weekend for our friend! The next major is only 10 days away (PGA Championship in Tulsa), and if you are a PGA Tour member not named Max Homa, look out!
