2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Homa struggled to find his footing as a rookie on the PGA Tour in 2015, but after a year away he earned his first win and more than $2 million. A decent 2019-20 season was followed by his best season yet in 2020-21. Homa set the bar pretty high, but he appears to be a golfer who might be destined for better things. His price will prevent him from being a great salary cap option this season, but there is a good chance he improves upon his numbers from last year. Just how much is the question. Read Past Outlooks
15th in SG: APP at Houston Open
November 16, 2021
Homa carded a one-under 69 on Sunday at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open to finish one-over and tied for 35th.
ANALYSIS
Homa managed to break 70 twice throughout his week at Memorial Park Golf Course, but he played Rounds 1 and 3 in a collective five-over-par to ultimately finish in the middle of the pack among those who also made the cut. On a more positive note, Homa gained 3.4 strokes on his approach shots and 1.46 off the tee. He'll now head to Georgia's Sea Island Resort for the RSM Classic, where he's 0-for-3 in cuts made.

2015
Homa picked up his first win in the 2018-19 campaign and while he didn't win this past season, it was statistically a better performance. Homa finished 40 spots better in SG: Total and had four more top-25s. Homa is fairly solid through the bag, but one big area for improvement would be short game, as he ranks 187th in SG: Around-the-green.
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.
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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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.
