2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Perhaps no victory was more unexpected last season than Homa's, who captured the Wells Fargo Championship in May. Homa's first go-round on the PGA Tour came in 2015, and things did not go as planned. Homa missed more cuts than he made and ended the season with less than $400k in earnings. In limited action the following season, Homa only managed $18k in earnings. Things weren't looking much better this past season until his victory in May, which is what made that win so surprising. Considering Homa has just one year of success under his belt on the PGA Tour, the bar is simply set too high for salary cap purposes this season. Read Past Outlooks
Valiant effort comes up short
July 26, 2020
Homa grabbed a share of third place at the 3M Open after a four-under 67 in the final round.
Homa started the final round three shots back and was in full chase mode. He had a few spectacular shots at 15, 16, and 17, converting them into birdies at the first two but not the latter. Homa also was unable to birdie the par-5 18th hole, which left him in a deep nine-way tie for third. He ranked 12th in SG: Approach, fifth in SG: Around, and fourth in SG: Putting for the week. Homa missed the cut in four of his last five starts, so he needed this to get things turned around with some big events coming up. He will be in the field for the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Homa missed a whopping 15 cuts in 17 starts during his 2016-17 campaign on the PGA Tour, so he was forced to spend the 2018 season at the level where he notched nine top-25s in 27 events. With top-10s at the Albertsons Boise Open and DAP Championship, Homa finished top-25 overall during the Tour Finals. He's missed the cut in well over half of his 53 career starts on the PGA Tour, however.
The youngster out of UCLA was a rookie in 2014-15 and enjoyed limited success. So he returned to the Tour and finished 23rd on the regular-season money list to get a second try. He should be better suited this time around, but whether enough to reach the playoffs and keep his card is a big question mark.
Seeking Special Temporary Membership, Homa played eight events last year while not accruing FedEx Cup points. He started off terrifically, finishing T9 as a sponsor exemption in the season-opening Frys, using that top 10 to get into the Shriners, in which he finished 30th. But that was that, and his bid for STM stalled. He turned to the Tour in May, and finished in the top 25 in regular-season earnings. So he’s a bit hard to predict. But top 125 seems out of range.
