Max Homa offers hilarious analysis on professional golf at PGA Championship

Amidst professional golf’s chaotic drama between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf, Max Homa and his wit have served as a beacon of light.

His comedy shined brightly again Tuesday when he spoke to the media before the PGA Championship.

“I do feel like the internet probably makes [professional golf] seem worse than it really is,” Homa said.

“[The internet is] a very small community and they’re incredibly loud. So I think if you spend a lot of time on the internet, it does feel like professional golf is crumbling.”

The past few years have seen fans and pundits gripe and argue about professional golf amid LIV Golf’s rise to prominence. But since the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) has invested over $1 billion into this new league, geopolitical and economic discussions have also entered the fray. The government has also been involved, with three hearings on Capitol Hill over the past 12 months.

“It’s got to be exhausting to be a casual golf fan at this point in time,” Homa added.

“I don’t know why you would want to hear about the business side of this game—the fans of golf should not know who is on the board.”

Like many golf fans, Homa is active on social media, where he posts hilarious analyses about his game or golf’s current state of affairs. He has also roasted golf fans on the platform, cheekily critiquing the swings of amateur players.

But also like many of us, Homa enjoys watching other sports, namely teams from his native Los Angeles.

“As a fan of other sports, I do not care about the business side of what the Lakers and Dodgers are doing,” Homa said.

“It’s just difficult because we come here and [Monday] was slam packed, and it was awesome, and everyone just seems like they are in such good spirits to just see us playing a somewhat meaningless practice round to their point of view.

“When we’re on the grounds of events, it’s amazing. Last week at Quail Hollow was awesome. It felt no different at Bay Hill. It felt no different. The Players felt no different. So it’s odd. It doesn’t feel like it’s dying, yet you hear a lot of very valid complaints on the internet.”
