Homa wins Sun City tournament by four shots

American Max Homa emerged as the winner of the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa, securing a four-stroke victory. Homa, who held a one-shot lead going into the final round, finished with a total score of 19-under-par. His closest competitor, Nicolai Hojgaard, finished four strokes behind on 273. Thorbjorn Olesen, who initially made a strong start but faltered towards the end, claimed third place with a score of 274.

Homa, competing in his first tournament since the Ryder Cup, faced a tough challenge from Olesen, who made six birdies in the front nine to catch up with the leader. However, Homa managed to regain the lead with an eagle on the ninth hole. A stroke of luck on the 14th, where his wayward shot hit an official’s buggy and stayed in play, further solidified his position. Homa extended his lead with birdies on the 15th and 16th holes, including a remarkable 38-foot putt.

Reflecting on his performance, Homa acknowledged the pressure he felt on the greens, stating that his putting was not up to par. Nonetheless, he managed to secure the victory, aided by Olesen’s double bogey on the 17th hole. Hojgaard finished in second place, while Justin Thomas claimed fourth place, trailing Homa by seven shots. The tournament served as a precursor to the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, which will conclude the season.

The Nedbank Challenge victory marks a significant achievement for Homa, who showcased his skills and composure throughout the tournament. With this win, Homa solidifies his position as a formidable competitor in the world of golf.
