PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Sick.
That’s how Max Homa described his rare feat on Saturday in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Sick as in very good indeed. How else would you describe making birdies on all four of the par 3s in a single round at iconic Pebble Beach? The four 2s on his card were key in a 4-under-par 68 that moved Homa into a share of 11th place.
Homa is just the seventh player to go 2-2-2-2 on the par 3s at Pebble Beach since 1983, and the first since 2011 to do so (Chad Collins). In 1997, Tiger Woods birdied all the par 3s in the third round.
“On 5, hit a pitching wedge, spun it off the fringe, kind of pulled it but got away with it. Had probably six, seven feet, a little left-to-right. Made that one,” Homa said. “On 7, hit a good one to like maybe eight, 10 feet up the hill. Lob wedge. On 12, was 174, I hit a low 6-iron below the hole, probably 12-15 feet. Made it.
“Then 17, had 196 and drew a 6-iron to like 20 feet, so it was a good four par-3s.”
Homa said he can’t think of ever making four 2s on the four par 3s in a round before.
