Max hits a Homa run!

Cal Golf has been phenomenal this season, acquiring blue jewels left and right for a golden crown. Today, senior Max Homa donned that golden crown, but the NCAA Men's Individual Champion looks to add one more jewel: a team title.

ESPN reports:

Homa shot a 4-under 66 to win the individual title at the NCAA golf championship Thursday, and his steady play carried the Bears to the top seed heading into team match play.

"I'll probably celebrate for about 30 minutes, just hang out with my teammates, my best friends," he said. "Then I'll refocus on the real prize."

The Bears' senior leader birdied three of the first five holes, surging past second-round leader Jon Rahm of Arizona State, and didn't make a bogey on the Capital City Club's Crabapple course north of Atlanta.

Homa won the title by three strokes over Rahm and five others.

Congratulate Max @maxhoma23 and make sure to root for @CalMensGolf as the team takes on Arizona State in the quarterfinals on Friday. GO BEARS!
