Billy Horschel carded a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his second round of the Valero Texas Open, reaching the halfway point in 2-under 142, four strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Horschel hit 14 greens in regulation and got up and down all four times, but still squared a pair of three-putt bogeys at Nos. 13 and 4. Elsewhere, he rolled in four birdies, the longest dropping from just inside 20 feet at the par-3 third. He might have mixed emotions despite being in the hunt as the 2014 FedExCup champ has split only eight 28 fairways this week. That's put pressure on his irons and short game, but he's surviving.

Billy Horschel regained form with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

This was long overdue. Horschel hadn't picked off a red number since a 65 at Spyglass Hill in the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am over a month ago. Today at Bay Hill, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to a field-tying-high seven birdies (at the time he signed his card). Three of his birdies ran at least 17 feet, the highlight stretching 43'4" at the par-4 13th hole. He also squared one bogey and a double, but salvaged par from 14'8" at 3. He's just one stroke adrift of the clubhouse tri-leaders. Today's aggregate is his lowest in nine competitive loops of the host course.

Billy Horschel readies for a home game at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Florida Gator will have no March Madness distractions this week as his Alma mater failed to make the Big Dance. That's good news for Horschel as he looks to break out of the post-FedExCup title hangover that currently haunts him. His only finish inside the top 35 this year came at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions where he finished T22 in a field of 34 golfers. The safest approach is to wait until the form returns before plopping Horschel back into your lineups.

Billy Horschel arrived at the midpoint of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in bogey-free, 10-under-par 68-65=133 and sits two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The reigning FedExCup champ has remained busy since hoisting the hardware at East Lake five months ago. However, the form with which he raced to victory in the last two legs of the Playoffs has not gone along for the ride. He's always been streaky, and has admitted as much, so perhaps he's about to go off on another tear. He's striped 22 of 27 fairways and hit 29 greens in regulation en route to 10 birdies, seven at Spyglas Hill today. With the hardest of the three tracks behind him, Horschel can now enjoy his third round at Pebble Beach in the third round.

Billy Horschel turns his attention to Torrey Pines for this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

The defending FedExCup champion appears to be turning the engine back on, posting three straight top 45s. He is 5-for-6 overall this season but 10 of his last 12 rounds being under-par is a good sign that he may be heating up. Horschel finished T23 here last year and gamers should expect more of the same this week.
Feb 4 - 9:58 AM

Billy Horschel tied for sixth in his first trip to The Plantation Course at Kapalua and returns to the Hyundai Tournament of Champions for a second peek.

Because of dramatic changes in elevation and difficult winds to navigate, veterans tend to thrive in this event. That Horschel was able to perform so well in his first trip likely bodes well for his subsequent ventures to Maui. While he didn't do anything of note in the early stages of this season, he did end the calendar year with a respectable T8 in the Hero World Challenge. The 2013-14 FedExCup champion earned his way into the field with consecutive victories to conclude the Playoffs.
Jan 4 - 10:53 PM

Billy Horschel ended the CIMB Classic with a 1-under-par 35-36=71 to post 4-under 284 for the week.

Horschel opened birdie-birdie today and found another pair coming home, but he also squared three bogeys. He averaged four birdies per round this week, but broke 71 just once (second-round 68). Obviously, this isn't the kind of experience he expected what with no cut and the limited field, but Horschel will get another chance at the WGC-HSBC Champions beginning on Thursday.

Billy Horschel chased his opening 71 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 1-over-par 35-37=72 to post 1-over 143, three strokes outside the cut line.

He hit only 10 greens in regulation in the second round and outbalanced two birdies with three bogeys to clinch the weekend off. Other notables that failed to make the cut include: 141-- Open runner-up Steven Bowditch; Cameron Tringale; non-member Patrick Rodgers; Brian Stuard (66-75) ... 142--Kyle Stanley (sponsor exemption); Justin Thomas ... 143--2012 champ Ryan Moore; Open champ Sang-moon Bae ... 144--Charley Hoffman ... 147--Retief Goosen.

Billy Horschel settled for an even-par 34-37=71 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The 2014 FedExCup champ hasn't played competitively since hoisting both trophies at East Lake in mid-September, but to walk off TPC Summerlin without a red number today is disappointing. He went just 3-for-14 in birdie looks and squared three bogeys, including a three-putt from 42 feet at the par-3 eighth hole. Horschel is seven swings back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Billy Horschel will stuff his golf bag with beef jerky for the first time since being crowned the 2014 FedExCup champion, preparing for this week's Shriners Hospital for Children Open.

After a remarkable Playoff run that ended with a runner-up and two victories, Horschel has been able to relax and enjoy the new lifestyle of being a father. His lone appearance at TPC Summerlin was a T16 in 2011. Without being a professional sports psychologist or being inside his head, it's impossible to know what kind of mental state Horschel will have entering the week. Gamers might be wise to watch from the outside as he enjoys his victory lap, and then reinvest in future tournaments.

Billy Horschel remained unfazed on his way to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, securing his second consecutive victory and the FedExCup title.

Playing in the final pairing, Horschel got the best of his playing partner, Rory McIlroy. After McIlroy faded in the middle of the round, Horschel didn't get lackadaisical and kept the pedal to the metal. With Jim Furyk nipping at his heels, Horschel put a nail in the coffin with a 30'9" par save on the par-4 16th hole. Off the radar for most gamers entering the Playoffs, the champ turned up the heat starting at the Deutsche Bank Championship and rattled off 12 straight rounds in the 60s to finish the season playing the best golf of his career. In addition to the $1.44 million payout for winning the tournament, Horschel will receive a $10 million bonus as the eighth winner of the FedExCup.

Billy Horschel conjured up a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in the third round of the TOUR Championship, reaching the 54-hole mark with a share of the lead with Rory McIlroy.

The overnight leader got off to a hot start, playing the front nine at 3-under before looking shaky at times on his back nine coming in. The highlight of the round came at the par-3 second, where he tracked in a 50'3" birdie bomb. Horschel continues to hold true to his reputation of being a streaky player. Starting the week inside the top five, and now sitting at 9-under 201, Horschel will control his own destiny on Sunday as the stakes are risen.

Overnight co-leader Billy Horschel chased his opening, 4-under-par 34-32=66 at the TOUR Championship with another in the second round to post 8-under 132 at the halfway point, good for a two-stroke advantage entering Saturday's third round.

Horschel hit only 10 greens in regulation at East Lake today, but squared just two bogeys. Yet, in his post-round interview on Golf Channel, he lamented about his scrambling. Most guys would be OK with going 6-for-8 while finding six birdies, so his confidence is soaring. His longest par breakers measured 12'7" at the par-3 11th hole and 25'1" at the par-4 14th. Through 36 holes, Horschel is also leading in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 5.940. Because he arrived in Atlanta ranked second in FedExCup points, he's one of the five that would win the FedExCup with a victory in the tournament.

Billy Horschel turned away those expecting a hangover with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the TOUR Championship, good for the overnight co-lead with Chris Kirk.

Horschel split only six (of 14) fairways, but found 16 greens in regulation at East Lake Golf Club today. He converted four times for birdie, including rolls from 29-and-a-half feet and 11'2" at the par-4 10th and 16th holes, respectively. It's his ninth consecutive red number dating back to the lid-lifter at TPC Boston two weeks ago. With a T2 at the Deutsche Bank Championship and a solid victory at the BMW Championship, Horschel is the man to beat for the whole enchilada. His wife is due to deliver the couple's first child any day, but the prospective father will not withdraw to attend the birth. Instead, if his daughter arrives during the tournament, he'd fly home for a few hours before returning to Atlanta.

Billy Horschel begins his quest to claim the TOUR Championship on the heels of a win at the BMW Championship last week.

Following a T2 at TPC Boston, Horschel picked up his second PGA TOUR title, and first of 2013-14, at Cherry Hills. That moved him to second in the FedExCup standings. The math works well for Horschel entering East Lake. The top five in the FEC Playoffs entering this week control their own destiny and would take home the FEC crown and $10,000,000 bonus with a win.
