Button on Homa's amateur days? Walker Cup ace

Max Homa during Sunday morning foursomes play at the 2013 Walker Cup in Southampton, N.Y.

Max Homa’s last tournament round as an amateur was a match-play loss to Kevin Phelan 2 and 1, but it will be memorable as the Cal Bear made an ace on the short par-3 sixth hole.

The 52-degree wedge shot landed left of the 114-yard hole and spun back toward the cup and in.

“It was a three-quarter 52 degree and I absolutely flushed it,” Homa said afterwards. “It kind of got me reenergized. It was cool.

"Six aces, four in competition. It was pretty sweet and it was so loud.”
