In his second start of 2015-16, Billy Horschel conjured up a 4-over-par 38-38=76 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to conclude at 1-under 287, up one spot on the weather-delayed leaderboard to T16. UPDATE: With play completed, Horschel finished in a five-way T8 for his first top 10 since T8 at the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic.
Horschel missed the cut last week at the CareerBuilder (70-69-75) and played the weekend at Torrey Pines in 74-76, but will still record his best at the Farmers in six tries (T23/2014). He circled just three birdies over his final 36 holes (two in R4) and squared nine bogeys, but he got done. Only 23 (of 71) completed their finales before Sunday's play was halted for a third time at 1:57 p.m. PST. The 29-year-old circled 16 birdies for the week against 15 bogeys and while 48 players are sticking around for a Monday finish, he heads to TPC Scottsdale for his fourth appearance in the Waste Management Phoenix Open (link to Phoenix Open field below).

Billy Horschel conjured up a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 7-under 137, down one spot on the day and into a three-way tie for fourth.

Horschel put up a bogey-free 67 in the first round on Torrey Pines North, one of only three players in the 156-man field to post blemish-free rounds on day one, joining Brendan Steele (68) and Steve Marino (69), also on the North Course. He opened his second frame on the South Course off No. 10 tee, and began 3-over thru his first five holes, squaring bogeys on holes 11 (three-putt), 13 (three-putt) and 14. The 29-year-old halted the skid with a 30-yard pitch-in birdie at the par-4 15th and connected three more to turn 1-under, including a 43-foot bomb at the par-3 16th. He continued the up-and-down round with three more bogeys on his inward half, but outpaced them with circles on Nos. 2, 4, 8 and 9. His bogey at the par-3 third was his third three-putt of the round, this one from 29'4". Thru 36 holes, he's T1 in birdies with 13, but T69 in bogeys with six (all in R2).

Billy Horschel ripped through the North Course at Torrey Pines with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 to kickoff his week at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Entering the week with spotty form, Horschel found something in his swing as he was dialed in today. Playing on a course with difficult fairways to hit, the Florida Gator managed to stripe nine (of 14) fairways and parlayed that into 17 greens in regulation. That type of ball-striking will keep you in contention on any course. Horschel will turn his attention to the difficult Torrey Pines South where he will play for the remainder of his week.

Billy Horschel suffered through a 3-over-par 39-36=75 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post a 54-hole aggregate of 2-under 214, missing the scheduled 54-hole cut by a distant seven strokes.

The former FedExCup champion was one of 12 TOUR players to make equipment changes for 2016 and one of five to sign with Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), making the switch from PING. He opened his season debut in 70-69 before today's tour of La Quinta CC which featured five bogeys and one double against four birdies. For the week, the 29-year-old hit just 21 (of 42) fairways and landed only 37/54 greens in regulation. Joining Horschel on the pine for Sunday are: 208-- Steve Stricker; 2009 champ Pat Perez; Marc Leishman; Tony Finau ... 209-- 2007 champ Charlie Hoffman; Jason Bohn ... 210-- Luke Donald; 2006 champ Chad Campbell ... 211-- Zach Johnson; Robert Streb.

Billy Horschel readies for his season debut at this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

The Florida Gator was part of the early January announcement from Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG). He is one of six PGA TOUR golfers with the new PXG clubs in the bag. This change in equipment comes on the heels of a letdown 2014-15 season. Gamers should keep a close eye on Horschel's performance early in the season, and get their trigger fingers ready to roster at any sign of form.

Billy Horschel is 3-under-par 71-70=141 at the midpoint of the Hero World Challenge.

This is his first tournament action since the BMW Championship almost three months ago. Horschel withdrew prior to the WGC-HSBC Champions with a back injury. While it's a relief to see him pegging it in The Bahamas this week, he sat in 16th place in the 18-man field at last check, this despite an eagle-3 and 12 birdies. Horschel has also squared five bogeys (all in the opening round) and one double, but the number that sticks out like a sore thumb is the 9 on the par-5 11th hole in today's second round. The soon-to-be 29-year-old (his birthday is Dec. 7) is not eligible for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in January, so we won't see him on the PGA TOUR again until the second half of the month at the soonest.

Billy Horschel is slated to tee it up at this week's Hero World Challenge.

Jordan Spieth will be attempting to defend his title at the 18-man event moved to Albany in The Bahamas this year. Horschel hasn't played since a T32 at the BMW Championship in September, failing to reach the finale as the reigning FedExCup champion. He then withdrew early from the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in early November due to a sore back. He placed T8 in the 2014 Hero World Challenge at Isleworth. Every December, there's always one notable who sheds competitive rust in unofficial action, so Horschel fills that seat this week. He'll turn 29 years of age on Monday.

Billy Horschel withdrew from the World Golf Championships-HBSC Champions, citing a back injury.

According to the Associated Press, Horschel experienced discomfort while still home in Florida, but he made the trip to China, presumably hoping that he'd be good to go by Thursday's opening round. As result, he'll remain without a top 30 (in six tries) in a stroke-play WGC. The HSBC Champions is unique among the series in that it features an alternate list, so it's likely that Horschel would have stuck it out if he wouldn't have been taking a spot in the field from a more worthy competitor.

Defending FedExCup champ Billy Horschel posted a final-round 4-under-par 34-33=67 at the BMW Championship to wrap his third appearance at 7-under 277, currently T28 with play still in progress.

Horschel posted finishes of CUT-T2-1-1 in these FedExCup Playoffs last year en route to hoisting the FEC trophy and the $10 million bonus. Suffering a similar fate to most FEC champions who came before him, exception 2012 champ Brandt Snedeker, Horschel will not return to East Lake Golf Club to defend his crown. The end certainly came prior to today's six-birdie against two-bogey effort, as the 28-year-old squeaked into the penultimate Playoffs event 67th in the FEC points and now projects 65th. Horschel concludes 22-of-28 on the season but just two top 10s. His season best was solo third at the Valero Texas Open.

Billy Horschel hoisted the hardware at the 2014 BMW Championship and earned his way back for a chance at defending his title.

The Florida Gator carried his runner-up momentum from the 2014 Deutsche Bank Championship and parlayed it into a victory at Cherry Hills Country Club. This year, the event returns to Conway Farms in Lake Forest, Illinois. Horschel finish T18 here in 2013. Over the years, he's established himself as a streaky golfer. Given his current form, it should be safe to steer clear of Horschel in most fantasy formats.

Defending FedExCup champion Billy Horschel finished off his third appearance in the Deutsche Bank Championship with a final-round 1-over-par 37-35=72 to conclude at 6-over 290, currently 72nd on the live leaderboard.

Horschel began the week 53rd in the FedExCup standings but after posting rounds of 73-68-77-72 he projects 66th. He should safely advance to the BMW Championship in two weeks, but his showing this year at TPC Boston was a far cry from his joint runner-up finish at last year's edition where he posted four rounds in the 60s. Since the inception of the FedExCup in 2007, only 2012 winner Brandt Snedeker made it back to the TOUR Championship the following year. Horschel will need a very-high finish at Conway Farms in the third leg of the Playoffs to become the second. Of course he did win there last year. Today's loop featured book-end birdies at Nos. 1 and 18 with three squares in-between. It was the third round this week in which he circled just two birdies on the card.

At 4-under-par 72-68=140, Billy Horschel sits just three swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The reigning FedExCup champ elevated his game in the late spring, but hasn't sustained it to warrant much attention in our world. At the same time, he's 47th in the FedExCup standings on the shoulders of eight top 25s, so maybe he's reinventing himself as a long-term investment. Thus far at Whistling Straits, Horschel has found 18 (of 28) fairways but only 23 greens in regulation. He's limited the damage to one bogey and one double while collecting seven birdies, the only notable of which ranging 17-and-a-half feet at the par-3 third hole in the opening round. Today's noteworthy conversions dropped for par from 11'6" and 25'2" at Nos. 7 and 9, respectively. The 28-year-old has always fed off confidence and his spurt during the Playoffs last year may have shrouded his pedigree a bit, so it wouldn't be surprising if he remained relevant on the weekend in the major.

Billy Horschel heads into this week's PGA Championship on the heels of seven straight top 35s.

The Florida Gator is known for his hot streaks, and he's currently in the middle of a prolonged stretch of great golf. After a slow start to the season, he currently ranks 52nd in the FedExCup standings. In two PGA Championship starts, his best finish is a T58. His ball-striking prowess should keep him top of mind for gamers this week.

Billy Horschel enters this week's Open Championship No. 20 in the Official World Golf Ranking and 45th in the FedExCup standings.

Horschel is 0-for-2 at The Open missing the cut in 2013 and in last year's edition by two on rounds of 73-75. In four career rounds, he's a cumulative 16-over-par with a stroke average of 75.50. The 28-year-old and current FedExCup champion has made eight consecutive cuts on TOUR with six straight top-25 finishes or better, including a T8 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, best during that span. In total, he's a steady 17-for-21 on the season with but only two have gone for top 10s, including a season-best solo third at the wind-swept Valero Texas Open. Horschel missed the cut at the Masters and finished T25 at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, closing with a final-round 67. He's paired the first two rounds with Victor Dubuisson of France and England's Ross Fisher. The trio has a Thursday reservation at 8:11 a.m. local time.

Billy Horschel authored a 5-under-par 32-33=65 to finish off his sixth FedEx St. Jude Classic at 7-under 273, good for a share of the 72-hole clubhouse lead with Boo Weekley.

Horschel began the final round at 2-under (T30) and seven shots back of the 54-hole lead. He boasts back-to-back top 10s at the St. Jude, including a T6 last year, so you knew a low round was coming after opening with 71-67-70. At 4-under total thru 15 holes on Sunday, Horschel was on the outside of the top 10 looking in, until closing the tournament 3-under over his final three holes. After squaring his second bogey on the back nine at the 15th, the 28-year-old responded by draining a 23'6" eagle putt on the par-5 16th and closing out in style from 5'4" at the last. Horschel sits T4 on the live leaderboard, up 26 ticks, and looks a lock to add his second top 10 (third, Valero Texas Open) in 19 starts on the season.
