Max Homa WITB 2021 – What’s In Homa’s Bag

A lot of fans aren’t sure what to make of Max Homa’s PGA career up until now. He hit a few snags in 2017; losing and regaining his PGA Tour Card. Then in 2021 he stunned everyone by winning the Wells Fargo Championship; his first ever PGA Tour win.

The roller coaster kept, well, rolling in 2020 which saw Homa without a PGA Tour victory. And then just recently at the 2021 Genesis Open, he beat out Tony Finau for his 2nd PGA Tour victory.

Everyone wants to know what’s in store for this 30-year old who’s up and down career has kept us all enthralled at the thought of what could be. And more importantly, everyone wants to know what he used in his bag for the Genesis Open and what he will be using for the rest of the season.

It’s no secret that Titleist is the most popular brand among non sponsored tour players and we see the playing out in Max Homas bag extensively.

Shaft: Aldila Rogue Black 125 MSI 80 TX Shaft

Key Features:

  • Thin crown
