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
Secures victory at home tournament
February 21, 2021
Homa won the Genesis Invitation with par on the second playoff hole over Tony Finau after shooting a five-under 66 in the final round.
Homa was tied with Finau who was in the clubhouse at 12-under-par going to the 72nd hole. He absolutely stuffed his approach, but lipped out a three-footer that would have won the tournament. On the first playoff hole, Homa got a terrible break that left him right up against a tree. Luckily he was able to pull off a crazy shot and give himself a chance for birdie. After both players made par, they moved to the par-3 14th where Finau was not able to get up and down out of a green-side bunker and Homa took home his second PGA Tour victory, this time at a tournament he grew up going to for years. Homa jumps to 10th in the FedExCup standings.

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.
