Revenge Game

Video shows Max Homa daggering Tiger Woods to his face, could be in for a long week in the Bahamas

November 28, 2023

Max Homa doesn’t pull many punches. He’s sniped, roasted, trolled and dragged countless golfers on his climb from Twitter jokester to PGA Tour superstar. As of October, however, he'd still yet to bag golf’s biggest scalp, Tiger Woods

That all changed at the Tiger Woods Invitational earlier this fall when Homa and Woods were tasked with rattling off as many of Woods’ record 82 wins as they could. In the recently surfaced video, which went viral on Monday, you can see Homa's life flash before his eyes as he begins the quiz with a simple, almost involuntary dagger:

"Not Riviera."

Only Homa (and maybe JT) would be brave/dumb enough to begin a recitation of Woods’ greatest golf triumphs with one of the most notable gaps on his resume. That takes some giant titanium cojones. Just ask Stephen Ames what happens to guys talk trash to Tiger Woods. It ain’t pretty.

Does a similarly bloody fate await Homa at the Hero World Challenge? With both set to tee it up in the Bahamas, has the bill finally come due? We'll just have to wait and see. Woods seemed to take the jab in stride, but if this look doesn’t say “keep laughing, I'm reloading,” we don’t know what does.
