Max Homa wins after playoff against Tony Finau

From the Daily Wrap-up:

Winning at Riviera was always a dream for Max Homa since he first attended the PGA TOUR event as a toddler. He never could have scripted a finish like Sunday at The Genesis Invitational.

Homa missed a 3-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for the win. On the first playoff hole, he appeared to have no chance when his tee shot settled inches from a tree. He somehow escaped to extend the playoff, and won it on the next hole when hard-luck Tony Finau failed to save par from a bunker on the par-3 14th...
