Web.com Tour: Max Homa wins the BMW Charity Pro-Am


On Sunday, Max Homa shot a brilliant eight-under 63 to win the BMW Charity Pro-Am by one stroke over Jonathan Randolph.  Homa was a star college player at the University of California, and he is enjoying success in his first season on the Web.com Tour.

The Web.com Tour is the “official proving ground of the PGA Tour.”  The talent pool is tremendous, and winning a tournament is a major stepping stone to a successful career on the PGA Tour.  Homa stills needs to finish in the Top-25 on the money list to earn his Tour card for next season, but he proved he has the game to compete at the highest levels with his win at the BMW Charity Pro-Am.

“The 25″ Money Leaders:

1. Carlos Ortiz

2. Andrew Putnam

3. Alex Cejka

4. Jon Curran

5. Blayne Barber

6. Adam Hadwin

7. Jonathan Randolph

8. Justin Thomas

9. Max Homa

10. Daniel Berger

11. Kyle Reifers

12. Jason Gore

13. Kris Blanks

14. Alex Prugh

15. Derek Fathauer

16. Alistair Presnell

17. Richard Johnson

18. Mark Hubbard

19. Ash Hall

20. Zack Sucher

21. Brett Stegmaier

22. Manuel Villegas

23. Sam Saunders

24. Tom Gillis

25. Oscar Fraustro

The feel good story on the Web.com Tour is the reemergence of Jason Gore.  Gore has been splitting time between the Web.com and PGA Tours this season, and is on pace to get his card back for next year.  He has a fun-loving personality, and is one heck of a competitor.  It is great to see Gore playing well once again.
