The RSM Classic is headed to a Monday finish with four players -- of an original five -- heading to a third playoff hole, the par-3 17th, after matching pars on the first two trips over the par-4 18th.
First- second- and third-round leader Mackenzie Hughes, Blayne Barber, Camilo Villegas and Henrik Norlander will return at 8:00 a.m. ET on Monday to determine the winner. Billy Horschel, the fifth combatant, bowed out with a 3-putt bogey on the first playing of the par-4 18th, whiffing an 18-inch come-backer for par. In regulation, all five players had birdie chances to win on the 72nd hole, including Horschel, though an unrealistic try from 32'7". Playing out of the final threesome, the 29-year-old began the finale in a three-way T2 on 15-under, one back of Hughes, and erased a lone bogey-5 at the eighth with birdies on Nos. 11, 14 and 15. Chasing his fourth TOUR title in his 153rd career start, first since the 2014 TOUR Championship, Horschel settles for his third career runner-up, first since a T2 at the 2014 Deutsche Bank, and drops to 0-1 in sudden death.

Billy Horschel authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of The RSM Classic to reach the three-quarter pole on 15-under 197, up five places into a three-way T2, one back of 54-hole leader Mackenzie Hughes.

The former Florida Gator has one bogey thru 54 holes, a bogey-4 at the third in R2 on the Plantation Course. He's played the Seaside Course in blemish-free 9-under, including today's five-birdie jaunt on 13 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation. The 29-year-old, chasing his fourth TOUR title, first since the 2014 TOUR Championship (as a 54-hole co-leader), gained 3.296 strokes tee-to-green and despite a pedestrian 1.813 putts per GIR, posted a 1.317 SG: Putting. He circled two-putt birdie-4s at 7 and 15 with his longest conversion of the day dropping from 32'11" at the par-4 fourth.

Playing the Plantation Course, Billy Horschel spun a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round of The RSM Classic to post 10-under 132, up 35 spots on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 29-year-old is making his third appearance, first since T43 in 2012, with a best of T20 on debut in 2011. At the 2011 edition, still part of the TOUR's Fall Series back then, he was the 36-hole leader (by two) with twin 64s, solo second after 54 holes with 70, and plummeted 18 places with a closing 5-over 75. The Floridian kicked off this week with a bogey-free 4-under 66 (Seaside Course) and chased with a seven-birdie one-bogey effort today. He striped nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.538 putts per GIR.

Billy Horschel torched TPC Summerlin during round one of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, stringing together a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-33=64 to throw his name into the mix early in the week.

The Florida Gator landed 16 greens in regulation on the day to keep things relatively stress-free with the flat stick. His putter was certainly not dormant, though, as he rolled in five putts from outside nine feet today. The longest was a 16'7" birdie splash at the par-5 13th. On top of that he also holed out from the rough (23'10") for birdie at the par-3 eighth. Horschel was making his 2016-17 debut, but showed no signs of rust. Playing his seventh round at TPC Summerlin, this marks a new low round for the 29-year-old.

Billy Horschel makes the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open his first start of the 2016-17 season and will be playing the event for the third time.

The 2014 FedExCup champ has been idle since a T10 at the BMW Championship eight weeks ago. It was his third top-15 finish in his last four events of the season but exited the Playoffs at 50th in the FedExCup standings, the second straight season he failed to return to the TOUR Championship. The 29-year-old is making his first appearance at TPC Summerlin since a missed cut (by three) in 2015 and also finished T16 during his rookie season in 2011.

Past champ Billy Horschel pieced together a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's final round of the BMW Championship to conclude his fourth appearance on 10-under 278, down one spot to T10 with play still in progress.

The 2014 winner (Cherry Hills CC) and 2014 FedExCup champion is eliminated at a projected 50th in FEC points. It's the second straight season that he's failed to advance to the TOUR Championship. The 29-year-old outpaced a pair of bogey-5s with four birdies to finish up with rounds of 73-68-67-70. For the week, he totaled 20 birdies against eight bogeys and one double, but needed something much better. He opened the Playoffs with T13 at The Barclays but a missed cut last week at the Deutsche Bank put him behind the eight ball. Horschel finishes the season with just four top 10s in 20 starts and a season-best T4 at the Valero back in April.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, past champ Billy Horschel styled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the BMW Championship to post 8-under 208, up 26 spots on the live leaderboard to T9, and good for the low round in the clubhouse.

The 2014 winner (Cherry Hills CC) kicked off his fourth appearance with 73-68 to sit T35 on 3-under. With preferred lies in effect, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR and 2.401 SG: Putting. The University of Florida alum birdied each of the four par 5s, including a walk-off at the ninth from 9'6". He also added back-to-backs on Nos. 2 and 3, highlighted by a 30-footer at the par-3 third. Horschel's lone bogey was a 3-putt from 41'5" at the par-4 seventh.

Billy Horschel opened his week at The Barclays with a 2-under-par 32-37=69 to find himself at T10 on the live leaderboard with morning action still in progress.

The Florida Gator split 12 (of 14) fairways to keep himself in position all day. He opened on the back nine and missed a 4'7" par-saving attempt on his opening hole, but didn't let it drag him down. He recovered to roll in a seven-footer for birdie at the par-4 11th and stretched it out to 27'6" for another birdie at the par-3 14th. Horschel swallowed three more bogeys to make the turn at 2-over before playing bogey-free 4-under 32 on his inward nine. The 29-year-old is making his debut at Bethpage Black this week, but his combination of distance and accuracy should continue to play well as the week progresses.

Billy Horschel stalled out to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to conclude his fifth appearance on 14-under 266, down one spot to T7 with play suspended at 5:32 PM ET due to lightning in the area. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 7:00 PM.

The 29-year-old was bogey-free 3-under thru 15 holes but took some luster off with a bogey-birdie-bogey finish. Although he walked off with bogey-5 on a failed scramble, he was able to get his lap into the books before the horn sounded, stranding six players. The Florida native and resident began the final frame in a four-way T6 on 12-under, six shy of 54-hole leader Si Woo Kim. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, posting a -0.848 SG: Tee-to-Green but salvaged the round with 1.286 SG: Putting. This is Horschel's fourth top 10 of the season in limited starts (17), first since T4 at the Valero, and is projected to climb 12 spots to 75th in the FedExCup standings.

Billy Horschel styled a season-low bogey-free 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 12-under 198, up six places on the live leaderboard to T5, tying the 54-hole clubhouse mark of Graeme McDowell.

Making his fifth appearance, the 29-year-old began the third frame in a 15-way logjam on 6-under (T11) after opening in 66-68. He mustered eight (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting 1.688 putts per GIR and a mediocre 0.482 in SG: Putting. The Florida alum rode a 2.627 in SG: Approach-the-Green to six birdies, including four straight on holes 6-9, highlighted by a 23-footer for birdie-2 at the seventh. He missed six birdies tries from inside of 12 feet but still posted a season best in 59 laps, previously 66 (x3).

Billy Horschel grinded out a 2-under-par 34-34=68 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, maintaining a spot inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard at 6-under 134.

The Florida Gator split nine (of 14) fairways but landed just 12 greens. That put a lot of strain on his flat stick, and it did not cooperate. He opened on the back nine with a bogey and his longest converted putt was a 5'3" birdie at the par-3 16th before making the turn. Horschel would drop in just one more putt from outside five feet, luckily it was an 8'8" eagle splash at the par-5 fifth. The 29-year-old won't gain much ground on the field today, but he is surely pleased to enter the weekend inside the top 15.
Aug 19 - 2:38 PM

Billy Horschel heads to Greensboro, North Carolina, for an appointment with Sedgefield Country Club at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Florida Gator will be making his fifth appearance at this event, posting a 3-for-4 record but nothing better than a T30. On the season he ranks just 103rd in strokes gained putting. He's finished inside the top 55 in that category each of the last three years, so the decline may help explain why Horschel sits at just 87th in the FedExCup race. The 29-year-old already has a win on his Donald Ross Design resume (2014 TOUR Championship) and he'll look to add another this week.

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.

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.
