Max Homa won the Genesis Invitational on the second extra play-off hole

Max Homa snatched a dramatic victory at the Genesis Invitational, as Tony Finau fell short again in his bid for a second PGA Tour title.

Homa missed a three-foot birdie opportunity on the 72nd hole to win the tournament in regulation, with a bogey-free 66 seeing him locked alongside Finau on 12 under at Riviera Country Club.

Finau, who jumped up the leaderboard with a round-of-the-day 64, squandered a putt for the win at the first extra play-off hole and then bogeyed the next, meaning a par was enough for Homa to claim a first PGA Tour win since the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship.

Tony Finau remains without a win since the 2016 Puerto Rico Open
