Billy Horschel will have a crack at Valhalla Golf Club at this week's PGA Championship.
Horschel missed the cut in his last start, The Open Championship, but had five straight top 30s prior. He has the profile to succeed in major championships, ranking 18th in driving accuracy and 6th in GIR percentage. Like always, his success or failure will come down to the flat stick. Gamers should take a hard look at Horschel this week in deeper formats. Aug 5 - 10:45 AM

Billy Horschel arrived at the halfway point of the Quicken Loans National in 4-under-par 70-68=138 and sits two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's been coming on of late, so recent form is trumping his forgettable course history at Congressional (1-for-2, T61, 2013 QLN). He's hit 28 greens in regulation and limited the damage to a lone bogey in the opening round. Today, he went 5-for-5 in scrambling and converted everything over which he stood inside 11 feet, three of which disappearing for birdie.

Billy Horschel turned in an even-par 35-35=70 during the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to record a top-10 finish at 7-under 273.

Horschel traded two birdies for two bogeys on his final tour of TPC Southwind, with a 24-foot birdie on the par-4 ninth followed by an eight-inch birdie on the par-4 10th. He found 13 GIR in the finale, ranking among the best in the field in that category for the week. This week's performance should boost his his stock for the U.S. Open later this week.

Billy Horschel carded a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and enters the final round at 7-under 203.

Horschel has been a bit chilly this season, but entered TPC Southwind on a T26-T15 run. He was off to a quick start on the front nine in his third round with a 15'11" birdie at the par-3 fourth and a 10'3" birdie at the par-4 seventh, but would put it in neutral with two birdies and two bogeys on the back nine. Should he snare his second top 10 of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, and first since the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, he would turn his attention towards the U.S. Open with momentum as high as it has been all season.

At 5-under-par 67-68=135, Billy Horschel sits seven swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

With last year's T10 at TPC Southwind and last week's T15 at the Memorial, Horschel quickly evolved into a popular fantasy option this week. He's not disappointing. He's hit 27 greens in regulation and circled an eagle (at the par-5 third hole in his opening round) and seven birdies. Today's set of three included a pair from 13-17 feet. As good of a driver of the ball that he is, he'll be a dark horse at Pinehurst No. 2 next week.
Jun 6 - 2:41 PM

Billy Horschel produced a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Memorial Tournament and joins Charl Schwartzel and Jordan Spieth in the clubhouse lead at 8-under 208.

The Florida Gator has been struggling the last few months, but five birdies to just on bogey on his lap around Muirfield Village could have him back on track. None of the birdies fell from longer than seven feet, and he's on record as admitting to some struggles with the flat stick. Those issues remain, as he lost well over a stroke with the flat stick. He missed just three fairways and four GIR on Saturday, so the ball-striking was propping him up.
May 31 - 4:24 PM

Billy Horschel tied for 41st in his debut and is back for another shot at this week's Memorial Tournament.

Horschel recorded two fantastic bookend rounds of 2-under 70 in his Muirfield Village debut, but offset them with a 75 and 76 on Friday and Saturday. The flat stick started to cooperate at TPC Sawgrass, to the tune of 1.042 strokes gained-putting. If the putter stays hot, Horschel should find his way back into contention.
May 27 - 10:30 AM

Billy Horschel answered his opening 74 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a 2-under-par 35-35=70, but missed the cut by two strokes.

The defending champ opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole before playing out the round in bogey-free 3-under with three birdies. He went 5-for-23 in par-breaker opportunities, which isn't strong on its own, but three bogeys and a double compounded the issue. Other notables that also fell short include: 143--Ernie Els; Will MacKenzie; Ryan Palmer ... 144--2009 champ Jerry Kelly ... 145--Russell Knox; Roberto Castro ... 146--Chris Stroud; Thomas Aiken ... 147--Rickie Fowler; John Peterson ... 148--2005 champ Tim Petrovic; Kevin Stadler ... 149--George McNeill ... 150--Patrick Reed.

Billy Horschel opened his title defense of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a 2-over-par 35-39=74 and sits 12 strokes off the overnight lead.

Horschel went just 2-for-11 in par-breaker opportunities and squared two bogeys and a double. While he rolled in a zero-putt six-yarder for par at No. 6 and converted a birdie from 16'11" at 5, he missed twice from inside six feet. It's his 18th round of par or worse in his last 23, a stretch that features zero top 35s in stroke-play events. Given the emotion that he wears on his sleeve, it's not surprising that he's a streaky player.
Apr 24 - 8:12 PM

Billy Horschel picked up his first PGA TOUR title in last year's Zurich Classic of New Orleans and is back at TPC Louisiana to defend this week.

Horschel was on fire when he hoisted the hardware last season, and his win was only a surprise to the most casual golf fan. Things are a bit different this time around, as his only top 10 of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season came at the limited-field Hyundai Tournament of Champions in January. He hasn't cracked the top 25 in a stroke-play even since Torrey Pines at the end of January. Simply put his hangover from NOLA is lasting quite a while.
Apr 21 - 9:19 PM

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.
Apr 8 - 9:15 PM

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.
Mar 7 - 1:30 PM

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.
Feb 28 - 4:13 PM

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.
