Homa gets Another Chance and Wins Hometown Event at Riviera
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Max Homa couldn't have scripted a victory like this at Riviera. He grew up watching this PGA Tour event. And he won the Genesis Invitational in a playoff over Tony Finau. It wasn't that simple. Homa looked like the winner when he stuffed his approach to 3 feet on the final hole. He missed the birdie putt for the win. In the playoff on the 10th hole, his tee shot settled at the base of a tree. Homa managed to extend the playoff with a par, and he won when Finau made bogey from the bunker on the next hole.
