Billy Horschel posted a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
He tied for ninth in his debut last year, but hasn't been playing well of late, so this is a nice surprise. Horschel missed only one of 14 fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to five birdies, two of which immediately following a bogey to maintain momentum. Three of his birdies traveled longer than 10 feet, the most notable measuring 18'10" at the fourth hole and 17'6" at 17. Apr 17 - 1:21 PM

Billy Horschel makes his long-awaited Masters debut on Thursday.

The University of Florida product is one of 24 first-timers at Augusta National Golf Club, and it's a bumper crop that is expected to make some noise. He may feel a little more pressure than the others, as he'll stroll the fairways with U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson for the first 36 holes. Currently 34th in the current Ryder Cup standings, it is likely imperative that Horschel leave a lasting and positive impression on Watson in case he needs one of the three captain's picks.

Billy Horschel settled for a 5-over-par 37-40=77 for his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

For a guy that's on record for loving challenging golf courses, his affinity for Trump National Doral may be on the rocks. He hit only 11 greens in regulation and converted on birdies just twice. The longest of the pair measured 11'2" at the par-5 12th hole. That success was overshadowed by seven bogeys even though he missed only one try inside 10 feet. Horschel arrived at Trump National Doral as a mild concern due to a sore lat muscle. If he's feeling better physically, his play isn't reflecting it, obviously.

Billy Horschel signed for a pair of 3-over-par 73s at The Honda Classic and will miss the cut.

After outbalancing three birdies with four bogeys and a double on Thursday, Horschel went 0-for-10 in par-breaker chances today while squaring three bogeys. Today, he was noticeably in discomfort after most full swings. This was due to a sore lat muscle on his left side. "I’m not sure what causes muscle spasms," he said, "but I’m just guessing it’s a little tight and doesn’t want to give up. ... It’s not a big deal. It’ll get fixed. It’s not why I played bad." Despite his statement, we'll toss him onto our Injury Report. Assuming he's fine, he'll compete in next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship for the first time in his career.

Billy Horschel throttled Jamie Donaldson 6 and 5 in the Jones Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Horschel's mentality and style of play is perfect for this event as long as he remains patient, a characteristic to which he admitted in his pre-match interview on Golf Channel. Mission accomplished in his first appearance. He won eight holes, five of which with birdies. His English counterpart mustered two wins with birdies, but had no chance against Horschel, who scored bogey-free 6-under-par through 13 holes. The victor will draw Jason Day tomorrow.

Billy Horschel carded a 5-under-par 34-33=67 on the North Course at Torrey Pines in his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Horschel opened the tournament with seven birdies on the South Course but settled for a 2-under 70 due to three bogeys and a double. Today he limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 fourth hole thanks to a hearty 16 greens in regulation. The precision paved the way for six birdies. At 7-under 137, he's three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Sporting bright red pants, Billy Horschel fired a 7-under-par 33-33=66 to take the clubhouse lead in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at 14-under 278.

It took him until his fourth lap around the Plantation Course to really figure things out, but Horschel solved the riddle to the tune of seven birdies without a blemish. The ball-striking was solid all week, landing at least 15 GIR in three of his four rounds. It wasn't until the finale when he added the putting touch needed to contend, gaining over three strokes on his competitors. While it doesn't look likely that his number will hold on for the win, it is extremely likely that he'll be back to Kapalua again in the future. Should he return, he will likely be a very good investment.

A costly mistake late in the second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions forced Billy Horschel to sign for a 1-under-par 34-38=72.

Horschel was 4-under through 14 holes on the Plantation Course, with five birdies and a lone bogey spread across his round. Then, after finding the fairway on the par-5 15th, he pulled his second shot into a hazard left. While examining his ball, it moved, resulting in a penalty. He ended up writing down a double-bogey seven on the 15th, then bogeyed the par-4 16th with a three putt from 18'6" while on tilt. After finishing with back-to-back pars, he enters the third round at 2-under 144.

Billy Horschel will try and tame Kapalua in his first Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Florida Gator took the PGA TOUR by storm during the first half of the 2013 season, picking up his first win in New Orleans to punch his ticket to the Plantation Course. While things cooled off later in 2013, there was really nowhere to go but down. Pertinent stats seem to suggest that he could be a fit for this venue. In 2013, he ranked inside the top 20 in par breakers, par-4 birdie or better percentage and putting from 5-15'.

Billy Horschel closed out the CIMB Classic with a 5-under-par 35-32=67 to post 8-under 280, good for very early possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

Horschel broke par only in his second round (69) before today's encouraging effort. He hit 13 greens in regulation in the finale and circled an eagle (at the par-5 10th hole) to complement five birdies. While he suffered two bogeys coming in, he may salvage a top 15 after beginning the final round outside the top 25.

Billy Horschel turned in a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, securing his eighth top 10 of 2013 at 6-under 274.

The Florida Gator picked up three birdies to just one bogey on his lap around East Lake Golf Club, despite splitting just six of 14 fairways. His 10 GIR were also the lowest of the week, but his putter picked up over two strokes on the field and were the savior of his round. While he seemed to lose momentum late in the season, it has been an excellent 2013 for the emerging star.

Billy Horschel scratched out an even-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the TOUR Championship.

Horschel erased bogeys at the third and sixth holes with birdies at the fourth and ninth holes, then settled for nine pars on East Lake's back nine. His eight (of 14) fairways were his lowest of the week, and his 12 GIR were nowhere near the 17 he found in the opening round. Still, he finds himself inside the top five with 18 holes to play at 4-under 206.

Billy Horschel chased his opening 66 at the TOUR Championship with an even-par 36-34=70 to post 4-under 136 at the midpoint, one off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After Thursday's irons clinic, Horschel found only 11 greens in regulation today, but he limited the damage to one bogey and a double. Those were offset by three birdies, the last of which via a hole-out from a greenside bunker at the par-4 17th. At the time he signed his card, he ranked inside the top three for the week in distance off the tee, fairways hit and greens in regulation, but 23rd in strokes gained-putting.

Billy Horschel stole the clubhouse lead with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the TOUR Championship.

He missed only one green in regulation and bogeyed that hole (No. 7), but Horschel picked off five birdies in what was his first competitive loop of East Lake Golf Club. Included in the set were conversions from 14'9" and 10'4" at the 11th and 14th holes, respectively.

Billy Horschel's breakthrough season comes to an end at this week's TOUR Championship.

Horschel has slumped of late, relative to his early-season form, and finds himself 22nd in the FedExCup standings. A T18 at the BMW Championship last week was preceded by a missed cut at The Barclays and a T70 at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Given this is his first look at East Lake, it's hard to believe he will have the confidence to correct his leaking form.
