Tony Finau understands what it takes to be father.
Max Homa is still in the beginning stages of becoming a father.
They were partners at the Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow Club in September, and were even paired together to win both foursomes matches.
Finau was asked by Homa what advice he would give her during Tuesday’s pre-tournament conference, which was held at Mayakoba, Mexico, ahead of the 2022 World Wide Technology Championship. Cam was born on Sunday.
Finau stated, “The best parenting advice that I have is to take care of my wife. That’s all.” The wife runs the house, and the world is run by the women. My mom and my wife are the two strongest people I know. My best advice to a husband is to take care of his wife. Max will take care of his wife and children.
Homa will not be teeing up in Riviera Maya this week, but Finau will make the El Camaleon Golf Course debut on the PGA Tour. After a highly successful season, which saw him win his third and fourth titles in back-toback weeks, Finau will make his PGA Tour debut at El Camaleon Golf Course. He also built on that success during his second Presidents Cup appearance.
Finau has been in the top 10 twice in six events, so there are high expectations.
Finau stated that although it’s not a very long course, my driving skills have improved and it’s a course that has felt better. “So, I look forward to driving it well this weekend hopefully and scoring well.
Finau hasn’t played much golf over the last month. Finau said that he spent lots of time with his children between the Presidents Cup, now, and the present. He only picked up his clubs in the last 10-12 days.
He has high expectations for the next season, however. Finau is a goal-setter. However, he stated that he will be sitting down before Thursday to think about what he would like to accomplish.
One of the goals is to make the 2023 United States Ryder Cup Team at Marco Simone, Rome. Finau is a member of the Ryder Cup team in both past years and has a record of 3-3-0.
Finau stated, “I know from the top of my mind that being on that Ryder Cup Team in Rome is going be a goal for me.” Finau said, “It’s something I believe a lot of guys would like to be a part. And I’m included in that.” I would love to be part of the team in Rome. That’s why I believe that it will be one my goals.
