Was a team-mate of Justin Thomas at the Walker Cup in 2013, a year in which he also captured the NCAA college individual title – Jon Rahm and Daniel Berger were among those in joint second three strokes behind – and qualified for the US Open.
It would be six years before he made it into another Major Championship and his Open debut did not come until The 149th Open at Royal St George's in 2021. He qualified then as one of the world's top 50 at the cut-off point in May and did the same last year, just after winning the Wells Fargo Championship for his fourth PGA Tour crown.
Twice a winner on the Web.com Tour, he made only two cuts in 17 starts on the 2017 PGA Tour, lost his card and tweeted: "Had a few caddies hit me up recently hoping to team up. They heard they usually get weekends off.”
However, back on the circuit in 2019 he won the first of two Wells Fargo Championships - it moved him from 417th to 102nd on the world rankings - and in 2021 added both the Genesis Invitational after a two-hole play-off against Tony Finau and the Fortinet Championship by one from Maverick McNealy.
He retained that title in September when he chipped in on the final hole and Danny Willett three-putted from under four feet. A week later, Homa made his Presidents Cup debut and won all his four games. He was also victorious in January’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torres Pines.
