Max Homa has revealed his desire to be paired with Collin Morikawa at the forthcoming Ryder Cup

Homa qualified automatically for Zach Johnson's team and will be one of four rookies in Rome. 

He already has experience representing the U.S. in team golf, having been part of Davis Love III's successful 2022 Presidents Cup team. 

There, he played alongside Tony Finau and Billy Horschel and his passion for team golf was evident. 

It was anticipated that even if Homa didn't automatically qualify for the side he would be one of Johnson's picks. 

One of Johnson's vice captains, Fred Couples, stated unequivocally Homa and Cameron Young would get the nod. 

But awkwardly, Young was left out leaving egg on Couples' face. Johnson said the comment was 'in jest'. 

As for Homa, he believes that he and Morikawa would make a 'annoying' duo to play against.  

"We were actually talking about it yesterday, I haven't been told anything yet so I have no secrets," Homa told Sirius XM PGA Tour Radio.

He continued:

"I'd be lying if I said... I'd like to play with Collin Morikawa.
"Collin and I are super close and we didn't play well at the Zurich Classic because neither of us could figure out how to putt the ball into the ocean.
"But I will say that we were on the 13th hole during alternate shot portion of the tournament and I thought to myself we would be a very annoying alternate shot team to play against.
"I feel like we would do well in the foursomes just because we play a similar game [and] I do think it's important to get along with the person you are playing with when you're playing that format and I just feel that we had a lot of birdie putts, a lot of looks and I thought we were steady Eddie's out there."

Homa continued: 

"I think everybody would like to play with Scottie Scheffler. He seems like he would be fun to play with [because] you'd have 12ft for birdie on every hole so I think we would make a pretty decent foursomes team.
"When you look down the list of the team, I mean, everybody's... we're all really close and everybody is a great fit. 
"I'm looking forward to what the stats guy say about that [the pairings] just because out of pure curiosity I wonder who I would be paired with.
"I didn't really know I was going to be paired with Tony [Finau] or Billy [Horschel] last year [at the Presidents Cup] until I kinda got there and you start playing some practice rounds."
