Wells Fargo Championship: Max Homa triumphs, joins Rory McIlroy as multiple winner of the tournament

In difficult conditions it was the American who prevailed at TPC Potomac.

Max Homa overhauled the 54-hole leader Keegan Bradley to win the Wells Fargo Championship for a second time.

Already a winner this season - at the Fortinet Championship - Homa landed a fourth career title by carding a 2-under-par 68 that contrasted with Bradley's 74.

Homa swapped three birdies and one bogey before the turn, then two of each after it, on another difficult day at TPC Potomac.

His 8-under total of 272 left him two clear of Bradley, Matt Fitzpatrick and Cameron Young.

Rory McIlroy ended the week alone in fifth on 4-under after a Sunday 68.

Homa had made nine of 11 cuts since that first win of the season but had a best of T10th before adding to his win tally and he admitted his confidence has been a little fragile.

"I've just been trying to walk around and fake it a little bit," he said. "Honestly, it's funny how that fake it till you make it thing, I started to believe it and I showed up on that first tee very confident today."

He felt his final par breaker had been crucial.

"It might be one of the best birdies I've ever made in my life," he said. "Even though I bogeyed the next and it got closer than I wanted it to, that just felt like a big turning point because I finally felt confident.

"It was like, just trust yourself, be who you are as a golfer."

He was also aware that the poor weather had helped him stay in the moment.

"It felt very one shot at a time," he said. "With the weather, how difficult the golf course was, it just felt like, 'Just play golf.' You're going to make bogeys, you're going to make doubles, you're going to mess up. This week more so than others where it's maybe been a little cleaner on Sunday, this one was just hit it, find it, hit it again."

McIlroy was 3-under through 10 holes but couldn't maintain the momentum.

"Had my chances," he said. "But played the last eight holes in 1-over which, whenever you give yourself a chance and get within three, is obviously not the way you want to finish.

"But I played well and I'm really happy with where my game is."

He won't play the Byron Nelson Championship next week. Instead he'll practise ahead of the PGA Championship.
