IVANHOE, Illinois (AP) — Max Homa won the Rust-Oleum Championship for his second Web.com Tour victory, closing with a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Josh Teater and John Mallinger.

“I feel better and better after each minute,” Homa said. “It feels a little surreal. I don’t think it will sink in until tonight or tomorrow, but I feel very proud.”
