Max Homa told by golf fan to shoot lower scores at PGA Tour event

Some professional golfers are more active on social media than others and a few players are not only very good on the golf course, but they are also highly entertaining on social media platforms.

The likes of Eddie Pepperell and Max Homa are two golfers who are definitely worth following if you're into the sport and like to have a laugh on Twitter.

Homa, who has won twice on the PGA Tour and most recently at the Genesis Invitational in February, is always interacting with golf fans on social media, something that is great to see from a player in the modern game.

With the second major of the year taking place at Kiawah Island next week, Homa has opted not to play on the PGA Tour this week and is instead at home working on his game.

This week's event is the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Craig Ranch, which is proving to be a fairly easy ride for those taking part, with Jordan Spieth and J. J. Spaun leading after the first round with an opening score of 9-under par.

With lots of players shooting low on Thursday, one golf fan decided to message Homa on Twitter to tell him he needs to be performing better with the golf course playing so easy, but that's a fairly difficult task considering he's not even in the field this week.

"Someone slid in my DMs and said that although it’s crazy the scores are so low at the tourney this week, I need to play better cuz it’s obviously an easy course. Playing better is definitely something I strive for. In my defense, however, I’m not even playing in the tourney...," Homa tweeted.

Homa then followed up his tweet with a slightly sarcastic one, asking whether Adam Scott (who is often praised for his good looks) was taking part this week, as golf fans apparently often mistake them for one another. Nice try Max...
