Every once in a while, old tweets resurface. Sometimes they’re bad takes, sometimes they’re miraculous predictions that somehow come true, and sometimes they’re heartwarming things like this.

In 2013, Max Homa, a then collegiate golfer at Cal, sent out a tweet asking Tiger Woods for a practice round at that year’s U.S. Open (Homa qualified for the event at Merion).

Like many professional golfers in this era, Woods was Homa’s hero.

Fast forward to 2021 and the California native took home the hardware at the Genesis Invitational, an event hosted by Woods and his foundation. So, after receiving the trophy, Homa took a picture with the 15-time major champion to mark the victory.

Now, 507 days later, it was announced the four-time Tour winner will tee it up with Woods and Matthew Fitzpatrick for the first two rounds at the Old Course for the 150th Open Championship.

The threesome with tee off at 9:59 a.m. ET on Thursday and 4:59 a.m. ET on Friday.

Homa was asked about the dream pairing: “Unreal times a million.”

In 2018, the then Korn Ferry Tour player went on the No Laying Up podcast and discussed the 2013 tweet.
