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. Sep 11 - 5:22 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 5:44 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 8:06 PM

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.
