The 6-time PGA Tour Winner Features Titleist Throughout the Bag
By Ryan Gager
Max Homa claimed his sixth PGA Tour victory at the Farmers Insurance Open at one of the most iconic courses in the U.S., Torrey Pines South in San Diego. Homa battled back for the win after being five shots behind entering the final round. We dive into Max’s bag to see which clubs helped propel him to victory. From his driver, to fairway woods, to irons and wedges, you can get fit into these same clubs at your local GOLFTEC.
Driver – Titleist TSR3
It’s tough to win a tournament if you don’t drive the ball well, and that’s exactly what Homa did at the Farmers. He finished top-10 in driving accuracy for the week, hitting over 60 percent of fairways.
“I actually like the sound quite a bit. Sounds like you’re smashing it, which is nice,” Homa said of his TSR driver. “I did notice that the spin didn’t change as much when you mishit it. The heel and toe strikes kept the spin a little closer to your good ones.”
Take a look at these recent TSR driver fittings at GOLFTEC!
In all three cases of GOLFTEC Students who were fitted for Titleist TSR drivers, their Backspin, Launch Angle and Decent Angle all improved compared to their current driver. These are three important metrics that GOLFTEC uses to get you into correct clubs, and when these three metrics are correct, it equals maximum distance. As you can see all three Students picked up significant distance!
Fairway Woods – Titleist TSR3 (3-Wood) and TSR2 (7-Wood)
Homa carries two fairway woods in his bag, a TSR3 3-wood and a TSR2 7-wood, a club that has dramatically increased in popularity over the last few years on Tour.
GOLF.com wrote this piece a couple years ago about PGA Tour players incorporating 7-woods into their bags, including Homa, who said, “Before the 7-wood, I was really only using a blade 3-iron or utility iron. It feels like we’re picking up shots when we do have good numbers into par 5s. It’s just so much easier to control into the green.”

Irons – Titleist T100S (4), T100 (5) and 620 MB (6-9)
Iron play is where Homa really shined at the Farmers, leading the field in Strokes Gained: Approach the Green for the week.
Homa utilizes a bit of a combo throughout his iron set, opting for a little bit more distance and forgiveness in his 4 and 5 irons with the T100S and T100 respectively, before getting to the true blade irons with 620 MB in his 6 through 9 irons.
Wedges – Titleist Vokey Design SM9 (46, 50, 56, 60)
Homa goes with four Vokey Design wedges in his bag, picking up where the 9 iron leaves off in his iron set. Going with four wedges allows him to properly gap his distances with these scoring clubs.
Each wedge has a different degree of bounce, and his 60-degree wedge has a different sole grind as well. His wedge specifications are as follows: 46-10F, 50-12F, 56-14F, 60-04L. Be sure to talk with your GOLFTEC Coach about proper gapping, grind and bounce in your wedge set up.
While Homa is a true Titleist brand athlete, we definitely encourage all of our Students to try different brands and find what works best for you and your individual game. One brand might have a driver that feels great to you, but then you might like irons from a different brand. It’s all part of the fitting process, and when it comes to fittings, GOLFTEC is the place to go to get a Tour-like fitting.
