Max Homa won’t win the Rocket Mortgage Classic, but at least he’ll leave the Detroit Golf Club with a nice shot he’ll remember forever.
Homa, who entered the final round at under 10, holed a 140-foot hole-in-one on the par-3 15th hole. The shot sailed over the hole but came back inside. Homa celebrated for a little tee shot, micro-drop style.
It was Homa’s second career PGA Tour ace – the first came a year ago at the 2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational when Homa tied for 17th alongside Jon Rahm and Aaron Wise. He birdied four before the hole-in-one, then birdied another on the 17th hole.
Despite his solid game, Homa was still seven shots behind leader Rickie Fowler. Homa has just six career PGA Tour wins – the last of which came on Jan. 28 at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego at Torrey Pines.
