2024Memorial/PowerRank/7. 7. OWGR: 10th. FedEx Cup: 16th. Max Homa

Max Homa had only a T-37th to show for his first three appearances at Muirfield Village.

He cracked the code in 2021 with a T-6th (69-69-72-72) at the Memorial Tournament.

He was seven off the pace. 

Homa proved it was no fluke by backing it up with T-5th (69-74-70-69) in 2022. Once again, he ended up seven shots back.

While he hasn’t been in the throes of contention late on Sunday, carding even par or better in seven of your last eight rounds here is noteworthy. So is 5-under in the four rounds on the weekend.

Homa used his one get-out-of-jail-free card to skip a Signature Event (at the time, a Designated Event) for a good reason. His sister was getting married during the 2023 Memorial Tournament.

Now Homa’s back and is in position to shake Jack Nicklaus’ hand on Sunday.

Homa had just one missed cut prior to the surprising one he suffered in his last start two weeks ago at Colonial. This season, the former Cal Golden Bear has three top-10s and nine top-25s.

The 33-year-old ranks 22nd on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green (.325). Homa put his short game skills on display when he holed out twice on Sunday at Quail Hollow last month.

He’s gaining strokes in all categories except for Off-the-Tee.

Being able to play from the juicy rough is critical at Jack’s Place. Not only greenside, but on approach. Homa is 22nd in average approach proximity from the rough (41’10”).

It’s been a fairly quiet year for Homa. This seems like the week where he gets things sorted out to build back up some buzz for his major prospects next week at Pinehurst.
