Max Homa could be leaning on his family’s Jewish roots to potentially put together a menu for the 2025 Masters dinner. Heading into the final round of the 2024 Masters, Homa is one of the top contenders to win at Augusta National. Homa grew up in Burbank, California before attending Cal.

The good news is fans already got a preview of Homa’s potential Masters Champions dinner, but it is a work in progress. During a February 28, 2023 interview on the “Pardon My Take” podcast, a puzzled Homa reflected on what his menu would include if he wins the Masters.

“I don’t know what I would do. I’m half Jewish so maybe I’d throw in like my mom’s Motzah ball soup or something like that,” Homa explained. “Yeah, I’m not sure how everybody would feel about it, but I think I’m going to be very boring [meal].

“Everyone always does like a steak [and] a fish [dish]. I’m going to have to call somebody to figure out what kind of wine is real good.”

Here’s the hilarious clip of Homa explaining his process of putting together a potential Masters Champions dinner.

[My father] knows his strengths, when it comes to teaching. And the moment I asked him about the golf swing, when I was a kid, he sent me to a coach.”

Max Homa Was Worried He Was Embarrassing His Mom Bonnie During The Match
