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. Sep 14 - 5:45 PM

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.

Billy Horschel picked up his second win on the PGA TOUR with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in his final round of the BMW Championship.

At 14-under 266, Horschel finished two strokes clear of Bubba Watson. The Florida Gator converted his 54-hole lead into a triumph. His three birdies were more than enough to erase his two bogeys, with his 22'6" birdie at the par-4 seventh standing as the highlight of his round. All of his action occurred on the outward nine at Cherry Hills Country Club, as he settled for nine pars on the back. Known more for his ball-striking than his putting, Horschel ranked first in strokes gained-putting this week. That's not to say he struggled tee to green. He finished the week fourth in greens hit. With this victory, Horschel climbs 18 spots to second in the FedExCup standings just in time for the TOUR Championship. If he is able to go back-to-back and win at East Lake, he would walk away with the FedExCup title.
Sep 7 - 6:07 PM

Billy Horschel lit up Cherry Hills CC for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-31=63 in the third round of the BMW Championship to take over the lead at 13-under 197.

The Florida Gator landed 16 GIR and converted seven of those into birdies. In addition to putting on a stripe show, he had the putter working as well. Three of his red figures occurred from outside of 20 feet, with a 23'2" effort falling on the par-4 first hole, a 22'3" slider finding the bottom of the cup on the par-4 14th and 31'11" exclamation point ending his day at the par-4 18th. When it was all added up, he gained more than four strokes with the flat stick. Horschel entered the week 20th in the FedExCup standings and fresh off a T2 at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday. With a win, he is currently projected to move into first place with only East Lake remaining.

Billy Horschel added a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of the BMW Championship to post 6-under 134 at the break and sit just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He went 3-for-4 in scrambling today and circled five birdies, four of which from outside 11 feet. The gem of the bunch measured 41'4" at the par-4 18th, but two others disappeared from outside 20 feet. He also poured in a par save from 10-and-a-half feet at the par-4 second. When he walked off Cherry Hills, he led the field in strokes gained-putting at an aggregate 6.250 (including 4.618 in the second round).
Sep 5 - 7:25 PM

Billy Horschel turned in a 2-under-par 35-33=68 for his opening round of the BMW Championship, finishing one stroke adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Horschel's 72nd-hole bogey at TPC Boston wasn't his best moment, but he didn't let it deter him at Cherry Hills today. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation en route to five birdies. The longest of the set stretched 45'1" at the par-4 fourth hole. Horschel also circled a zero-putt birdie from the fringe four yards away at the par-4 10th. He squared a double-bogey 6 at No. 5 and a bogey-5 at 13, but he can't complain after rising to 20th in the FedExCup standings on Monday.
Sep 4 - 6:31 PM

Billy Horschel carded a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and finished in a share of second place at 13-under 271.

Each of Horschel's three birdies were outside of 10 feet, falling from 10'9" 14'10" and 16'6" on the first, seventh and 15th holes respectively. He stood in the par-5 18th fairway without a blemish on the card and went for the green in two, needing just a birdie to tie. Unfortunately for him, he caught it fat and found the hazard in front of the green. He eventually settled for a bogey. He improves from 82nd to 20th in the FedExCup standings and now makes his way to the BMW Championship.
Sep 1 - 6:27 PM

Billy Horschel spun a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and trails Russell Henley by a stroke at 11-under 202 with 18 holes to play.

The Florida Gator traded two birdies for one bogey on his first 15 holes at TPC Boston before finishing his round with three consecutive birdies. A couple of his birdies were of note, falling from 12'5" on the par-3 eighth and 11'4" on the par-4 17th. He began his week ranked 82nd in the FedExCup standings and off the radar in terms of a Ryder Cup captain's pick. Should he erase the deficit on Monday and emerge with the win, he would be a legitimate contender for the FEC title and could steal a spot on the Ryder Cup should Tom Watson consider him worthy.
Aug 31 - 5:31 PM

Billy Horschel fashioned a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 7-under 135 at the midpoint, one back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Horschel arrived at TPC Boston slotted 82nd in the FedExCup standings. It's been a solid season, but one that lacked a notable achievement. But the Playoffs can change everything in short order. He went 3-for-4 in scrambling today and picked off six birdies. The most notable came in the form of a holed bunker shot from nine yards away at the par-5 18th, his ninth of the round. Horschel also poured in conventional conversions from 18'11" and 12'6" at Nos. 14 and 7, respectively.
Aug 30 - 2:36 PM

Billy Horschel makes his way back to TPC Boston for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Horschel got in four rounds in his 2013 DB Championship debut, but settled for a T70 finish when the week was over. A finish that netted him 4.90 FedExCup points. Entering this week at 84th in the FEC standings, a similar finish just won't do the trick. After posting eight top 10s in his 2013 campaign, he's netted just two this season. While Horschel has showns some form in spurts, his inconsistency with the flat stick makes him a risky option for gamers.

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.
