Max Homa makes eerie prediction about Jon Rahm’s LIV Golf announcement … and it comes true

December 08, 2023

The cat is out of the bag. The beans are all over the floor. We’ve popped the top on Pandora’s Box like a tube of Pringles. The worst-kept secret in golf is no longer a secret:

The takes will flow like the boxed wine at your auntie’s on Christmas Eve, but don’t let that distract you from the real headline here: Max Homa can read minds.

Wait, what??

That’s right. We all thought Homa was just another witty millennial golfer on Twitter, but if the eerie prediction he made just hours before the Basque Bruiser confirmed his LIV switch is any indication, he may well be the second coming of Nostradamus.

WHAT DID HE KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT? HOW DEEP DOES THIS RABBIT HOLE GO?? OK, all joking aside, PGA Tour players have been kept in the dark just as much as the general public this year, but it seems like they got some advance notice on this one. Maybe that’s because Monahan knows his job is hanging by a thread and is doing anything he can to curry favor. Or perhaps it’s because they’ve all seen the missing puzzle piece we haven’t—i.e. news of an impending PGA Tour-PIF merger.

Believe what you want to believe, but golf is a hell hole right now and the world is even worse, so we’re choosing the fun option: Homa is the astral reincarnation of a 16th century prophet, using the powers of sight through time to predict his fellow pros' fashion choices. That’s our theory and we’re sticking to it.
