2022–23 Fantasy Outlook
Homa began the year with a victory at the Fortinet Championship and proved to be very consistent throughout the spring. He then was able to get himself back in the winner's circle for a fourth time in his career at the Wells Fargo Championship. Homa would make the Tour Championship for the first time and score a T5 finish. If you are looking for the key to Homa's leap this year it has been in the short game department where he now ranks 57th in SG: Around-the-Green, a stat that he has been mired outside the top-150 in for the large majority of his career. The rest of his bag is extremely consistent, so it's hard to see why he couldn't have another very solid season in 2022-23. Whether he wins again, let alone multiple times, is another story.

Back-to-back in Napa after stunning finish
September 18, 2022
Homa defended his title at the Fortinet Championship after shooting a four-under 68 in the final round on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Homa prevailed for the second year in a row in Napa in one of the most shocking finishes to a tournament in recent history. Entering the 72nd hole down one, Homa needed to get up and down for birdie from a green-side bunker to give himself a chance. After dumping it short of the green, Homa bounced back and holed it to put the pressure on Danny Willett, who has not won on the PGA Tour since the 2016 Masters Tournament. Willett stood over his three-footer for birdie to win and slammed it straight through the break and left himself nearly five feet to go to a playoff. That putt would catch the lip as well and Homa somehow claimed his fourth victory on the PGA Tour in his last 41 starts. He will now head to the East coast to participate in the Presidents Cup for the first time at Quail Hollow next week.

2015
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.
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.
