Max Homa was called upon to provide an analogy for Winged Foot and he certainly didn't disappoint.

Max Homa is easily one of the best professional golfers to follow on Twitter (along with Eddie Pepperell of course) and once again he has come up trumps with a fantastic analogy of what it's like to play Winged Foot.

We knew that the venue for the 2020 US Open was going to be one of the toughest tests we have seen for a long time, with the rough being 10-inches long in places and the fast slopes featured on pretty much every green.

In the build up to the tournament, Tiger Woods said that Winged Foot is among the top three hardest golf courses on the planet, alongside Carnoustie and Oakmont.

Eventual champion Bryson DeChambeau finished as the only player to shoot under par, with Matthew Wolf - who led after 54 holes - finishing six strokes behind on level par.

We were treated to some spectacular shots but we also saw a few howlers, as expected at a course of this difficulty.

Homa, who currently sits 80th in the World Rankings, was playing in just his second US Open and missed the cut when he shot 14-over par after two rounds.

Joel Dahmen, a good friend of Homa who also missed the cut, was asked by a fan on Twitter if Winged Foot could be equated to anything else, but non-golf related, so Dahmen asked Homa to intervene.

"Playing Winged Foot is like going for a run. Ur optimistic to start, ur almost immediately p*ssed off, there’s a lot of heavy breathing, the views are great, ur wondering why u did this to urself, there’s some self-hate involved, finishing is euphoric, ur gunna do it again," tweetd Homa.
