Max Homa teamed up with Talor Gooch for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, the lone team event on the PGA Tour.

The pair finished tied for 17th and took home about $37,000 each for their time in the Bayou.

Homa is playing again this week in the Valspar Championship but on Monday, he did what a lot of us do on our day off and he played golf.

Taking a detour northeast from New Orleans before he heads to back south to Tampa, Homa paid a visit to Greystone Golf & Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama, where he then did something that few golfers have ever done.

Yup, he made an albatross. Some might call it a double eagle, but either way, Homa can add that feat to his list of accomplishments.

What are the odds of making an albatross? About 1 million to one, although if you’re a PGA Tour winner like Homa, your odds are considerably better. By comparison, the National Hole-In-One Registry says a Tour pro has about a 3,000-to-1 chance to make an ace.
