Billy Horschel bounced back from an early bogey to sign for a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of The 145th Open at Royal Troon.
Horschel swallowed a bogey early on at the par-4 third hole but played blemish-free golf after that hiccup. He split only half of the 14 possible fairways, but still managed 12 greens in regulation. Most impressive was the inward nine as he circled two birdied and scribbled seven pars to play it at 2-under 33, more than four and a half strokes better than the field average, at the moment. The Florida Gator is making his fourth appearance at The Open, including a T30 last year after missing the cut in his first two trips across the pond. Jul 14 - 10:15 AM

Billy Horschel owns three straight top 25s at the U.S. Open and returns this week to Oakmont, Pennsylvania, for his shot at a fourth consecutive.

The Florida Gator returns from a four-week hiatus since a T28 at THE PLAYERS. His game has been in fine form all season, posting top 55 finishes in 12-of-13 starts. He currently ranks inside the top 100 in driving distance, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, and strokes gained putting. It's that type of all-around game that helps him contend at U.S. Open setups. Most notable was a T4 back in 2013, but he also sports T23 and T25 finishes in each of the past two runnings. Given his recent lack of play, Horschel may be off the tip of the tongue for many gamers, but he should not go overlooked this week at Oakmont Country Club.

Billy Horschel signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 after the final round of the Valero Texas Open to conclude his sixth appearance on 9-under 279, up two on the leaderboard to T4, three back of champion Charley Hoffman.

The 29-year-old began his final frame on 7-under (T6), four back of 54-hole leader Ricky Barnes. Playing out of the penultimate threesome that included the would-be-champ, he hit eight (of 14) fairways but mustered just nine greens in regulation. Horschel went 7-for-9 in scrambling, squaring the third and the 10th, but camoflouged them with four circles, including birdie-4s on three of the par 5s, and adding a 14-footer on the par-4 sixth for his longest conversion of the round. His T4 is his third top 5 at TPC San Antonio in his last four tries, and a season best and third top 10 of the season in 11 starts.

Billy Horschel orchestrated a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to post 7-under 209, up 26 places on the live leaderboard to T4 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Horschel is in a six-way T6, four back of 54-hole leader Ricky Barnes.

This is Horschel's sixth VTO with solo third last year and T3 in 2013 his best finishes. He's playing the weekend for the 10th consecutive time this season after opening in 70-72, tied 30th thru 36 holes. The 29-year-old found just half (of 14) fairways but peppered 15 greens in regulation, posting 2.136 strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. He also gained 2.497 strokes with the flat stick, circling birdies on Nos. 5, 8, 9, 14 and 17, all from inside of 14 feet, and dropping two seven-footers to save par.
Apr 23 - 3:38 PM

Billy Horschel bombarded Harbour Town Golf Links with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-32=66, recording the low round of the morning wave and reaching 2-under 140 on the week.

You could tell something good was brewing when the Florida Gator alum opened with a 38'4" birdie bomb on the par-4 10th hole. He added two more circles on his outward nine, including a 16'7" roll on the par-3 17th hole. Horschel kept his momentum going when he saved par from 13'5" on the par-4 first. This goes in the goes as his career-low round at Harbour Town Golf Links (previous 68 twice in 2013) and also the low round of the morning, with no one else even reaching 4-under in the A.M. wave. Horschel is now just four strokes off the pace and in great position to make a weekend push.
Apr 15 - 1:32 PM

Billy Horschel fashioned a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the 80th Msaters.

The Florida Gator missed six (of 14) fairways on the day, but wasn't too far off the preferred route as he still managed 13 greens in regulation. His putter helped his cause early in the round with a 29-foot birdie bomb on the par-5 second hole. He added a birdie from just off the green (6 yards out) on the par-3 12 hole. His other two birdies both came as a result of sticking his approach shots inside six feet. Horschel carded a 2-under 70 in his opening round last year before firing an 8-over 80 to miss the cut. He will look to keep his foot on the gas tomorrow to avoid a similar fate this week.
Apr 7 - 5:31 PM

40-seed Billy Horschel was ousted by 50-seed Jaco Van Zyl 2-and-1 on Friday at the WGC-Dell Match Play.

Horschel needed a win and a loss from 18-seed Brooks Koepka and would've then met Koepka in a playoff to see who would advance out of Group 10. He got the Koepka loss earlier to Danny Willett (4-and-3), but failed to hold up his end of the bargain. Horschel was 1 up thru five holes after par on the second, all square thru six, and 1 up with his first birdie at the par-3 seventh. He fell back to all square to Van Zyl's birdie-3 at 10, went 1 down after Van Zyl's 3 at the par-4 13th, and 2 down to his eagle-3 at 16. The duo matched birdie-2s on the 17th to conclude the match. Horschel departs his third WGC with a 1-2-0 record while first-timer Van Zyl exits at 1-1-1.

Billy Horschel kept his hopes alive with a 3-and-2 victory over Danny Willett during round two of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Horschel lost a hard-fought battle against Brooks Koepka in round one, but flipped the script on day two. The WGC darling, Willett, drew first blood with a 12'4" birdie roll on the par-3 fourth hole. Horschel bounced back immediately with a birdie of his own at the par-4 fifth. No putt was required at he landed his 84-yard approach to just 18 inches. The duo traded blows from there on out, until Willett left the gate open with a double at the 13th and a bogey at the 14th. With this loss, Willett has no chance to advance to the round of 16, but he can play the spoiler role if he gives Koepka his first loss in tomorrow's match.

Billy Horschel rode a birdie-birdie finish to a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to reach the midpoint on 5-under 139, up 57 places on the live leaderboard to T11.

Making his fourth API appearance, Horschel opened with a three-birdie three-bogey 72 but got things going with seven birdies against two bogeys on day two. He began his second frame off No. 10 and outpaced two squares with three circles to turn 1-under. The 29-year-old played his inward half in bogey-free 4-under, with birdies on 1, 6, 8 and 9. He improved slightly to 10 (of 14) fairways but dramatically to 15 greens in regulation from just seven in R1. Six of his par breakers traveled less than seven feet with a long of 13'1" coming at the par-4 first.

Florida native and resident Billy Horschel does battle in his fourth Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge.

The 29-year-old logged his first-ever top 10 in a Florida Swing event when T8 at The Honda Classic, playing the weekend in 66-69 after making the cut on the number at 3-over (73-70). He went back to his old ways with a 41st-place finish the following week at the WGC-Cadillac after rounds of 72-71-75-75, his last start. True-to-form, the Florida Gator alum (2009) has posted T43-T43-75 in three tries at the Palmer Invite. Overall, he's 5-for-6 on the season with two top 10s, the Honda, and a matching T8 at the Farmers.
Mar 16 - 10:38 AM

Billy Horschel carded a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of The Honda Classic for a 72-hole tally of 2-under 278, up three spots on the leaderboard to a two-way T8.

Horschel's 66 on day three tied 54-hole co-leader Adam Scott for low lap of the day on Saturday and chased 73-70 to position him T11 thru three rounds. He was eight adrift of the co-leaders to begin his finale frame, but just one shy of the overnight top 10. The Florida native and resident, who did not own a top-10 finish in any Florida Swing events since joining the TOUR in 2011, circled four in the finale to outpace a lone bogey and a double on the par-3 17th after finding the water. He finishes the week with 18 birdies, currently No. 1 in the field in that stat, but is T24 in bogeys with 11 and along with his double today, swallowed a triple in round one. The 29-year-old posts his second top 10 of the season (fifth start) and matches a season-best T8 at the Farmers.

Billy Horschel conjured up a 4-under-par 30-36=66 in the third round of The Honda Classic to post 1-under 209. UPDATE: Horschel's 66 tied 54-hole co-leader Adam Scott for low round of the day.

Horschel opened in 73-70, needing a birdie-birdie finish in R2 to make the cut on the number. It's his second weekend at PGA National in five tries with his previous cash a T46 in 2013. As noted in the build up, the Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida resident does not own a top-25 finish in any of the Florida Swing events since joining the TOUR in 2011. His eight-birdie four-bogey loop on day three may end that drought as he's currently T18, up 44 places on the leaderboard. The 29-year-old raced out with four straight circles and added two more on Nos. 8 and 9 to camouflage bogey at the par-3 fifth, turning in 5-under 30. The bid for something lower stalled out however, outpacing birdie-3s at 13 and 16 with squares at 10, 12 and 17 to come home in 1-over 36.
Feb 27 - 1:09 PM

Billy Horschel prepares for his fifth playing of The Honda Classic at PGA National's Champion Course.

The 29-year-old has ranked in the top 25 in ball-striking in each of the past five seasons but limps into the Honda at 166th this season. Granted, that ranking only encompasses four starts in 2015-16 but he's yet connect four straight rounds of par-or-better in any of his starts. It's difficult to see Horschel busting out of that funk at PGA National where he's missed the cut three of four times with his only cash a T46 in 2013. Interestingly enough, the Florida Gator and Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident does not own a top-25 finish in any of the Florida Swing events since joining the TOUR in 2011.
Feb 24 - 5:09 PM

In his second start of 2015-16, Billy Horschel conjured up a 4-over-par 38-38=76 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to conclude at 1-under 287, up one spot on the weather-delayed leaderboard to T16. UPDATE: With play completed, Horschel finished in a five-way T8 for his first top 10 since T8 at the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Horschel missed the cut last week at the CareerBuilder (70-69-75) and played the weekend at Torrey Pines in 74-76, but will still record his best at the Farmers in six tries (T23/2014). He circled just three birdies over his final 36 holes (two in R4) and squared nine bogeys, but he got done. Only 23 (of 71) completed their finales before Sunday's play was halted for a third time at 1:57 p.m. PST. The 29-year-old circled 16 birdies for the week against 15 bogeys and while 48 players are sticking around for a Monday finish, he heads to TPC Scottsdale for his fourth appearance in the Waste Management Phoenix Open (link to Phoenix Open field below).
Jan 31 - 5:51 PM

Billy Horschel conjured up a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 7-under 137, down one spot on the day and into a three-way tie for fourth.

Horschel put up a bogey-free 67 in the first round on Torrey Pines North, one of only three players in the 156-man field to post blemish-free rounds on day one, joining Brendan Steele (68) and Steve Marino (69), also on the North Course. He opened his second frame on the South Course off No. 10 tee, and began 3-over thru his first five holes, squaring bogeys on holes 11 (three-putt), 13 (three-putt) and 14. The 29-year-old halted the skid with a 30-yard pitch-in birdie at the par-4 15th and connected three more to turn 1-under, including a 43-foot bomb at the par-3 16th. He continued the up-and-down round with three more bogeys on his inward half, but outpaced them with circles on Nos. 2, 4, 8 and 9. His bogey at the par-3 third was his third three-putt of the round, this one from 29'4". Thru 36 holes, he's T1 in birdies with 13, but T69 in bogeys with six (all in R2).
