Billy Horschel authored a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's opening round of THE PLAYERS, finishing one stroke adrift of the clubhouse lead.
Anyone watching last week knows that Rory McIlroy beat Horschel in the third round of the Match Play; Horschel didn't lose. It was a shame they were in the same group as it was one of the better matches of the week. Today, the American, who lives nearby, illustrated why he belonged on our radar this week. He striped 12 (of 14) fairwaysm, hit 14 greens and covered a lone bogey with five birdies. Horschel's longest conversion ranged 21'4" at the par-3 13th hole for birdie. May 7 - 1:48 PM

Billy Horschel dusted Jason Dufner 3 and 2 in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

As we suggested on Wednesday, Horschel had to be salivating at the proposition of going 2-0 against a struggling Dufner. All he needed to do was execute. Of course, that's always easier said than done, but he really didn't have to sweat too much today. Horschel picked off wins with birdies at Nos. 1 and 4 to build a 2-up cushion. A double bogey-6 at the seventh stung, but Dufner never squared. After a birdie-bogey swing in Horschel's favor at the par-4 10th, they traded pars until Dufner's match-ending bogey at the par-4 16th. Horschel will play for a spot in the round of 16 against Rory McIlroy (2-0) in the third round on Friday. Dufner and Brandt Snedeker (0-2) can yuck it around TPC Harding Park before collecting FedExCup points, earnings and Official World Golf Ranking points. They already know that they'll have the weekend off.

Billy Horschel lambasted Brandt Snedeker 5 and 4 in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Horschel needed only 14 holes. He played them in bogey-free 6-under-par with six birdies, including a chip-in at the par-4 11th. Meanwhile, Sneds was all over the map. He picked off four birdies, but also incurred four bogeys and a double. The short story is that once the 2012 FedExCup champ surrendered the lead to the 2014 FedExCup champ at the par-3 second hole, the newer winner refused to let go. In what's already a mismatch on paper, Horschel will take aim at Jason Dufner on Thursday. Snedeker has to deal with Rory McIlroy in the second round.

The third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans is scheduled to resume at 6:00 p.m. CT. UPDATE: After Kevin Prise's tweet (linked below) stating that played was called for the day at TPC Louisiana, Billy Horschel replied with his own: "Umm no it hasn't. Players haven't gotten word yet. Final update at 5." We'll keep you updated. The PGA TOUR's media page tweeted that play is scheduled to resume at 6:00 p.m.

Inclement weather postponed play at 12:14 p.m. CT today. Forty-one of the 71 golfers that survived the cut have completed at least one hole of the third round. Among them is Billy Horschel, who had just parred the par-4 10th when the horn sounded. He's 5-under through 37 holes. The 2013 champ is also one of seven who survived the cut and with plans to compete in next week's Match Play. The others are Keegan Bradley, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Marc Leishman, Justin Rose and Bernd Wiesberger. The tournament will bleed into Monday if necessary to complete 72 holes. The good news is that Mother Nature should cooperate all day on Sunday.
Apr 25 - 5:15 PM

Billy Horschel submitted a 2-under-par 36-34=70 for his opening round of the Masters.

When you miss only one of 14 fairways and one green in regulation at Augusta National Golf Club, you expect to post a good score. Well, Horschel found three birdies, but he still gave back a shot at the par-3 sixth hole. It his first red number in five career rounds in competition on the course. He took last week off after a solo third in San Antonio. As gamers know, the 2014 FedExCup champ can reach an unconscious level when he's dialed in. Do not rule him out despite limited experience in the season's first major.
Apr 9 - 6:46 PM

Billy Horschel posted a tidy 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to finish alone in third at 4-under 284.

Horschel circled three birdies and squared two bogeys on his navigation of TPC San Antonio, with all of the birdies dropping from inside of 10 feet. He ends the week seven strokes behind Jimmy Walker and three behind Jordan Spieth. This was a big week for the 2014 FedExCup champion. He began this tournament ranked 110th in the FEC standings, but moves to 48th with this result. This is the first time all season that he's cracked the top 20. Known for getting hot in concentrated spurts, this could indicate that he is headed towards a peak just in time for the season's first major.
Mar 29 - 6:04 PM

Billy Horschel conjured up a 1-under-par 37-34=73 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and is the clubhouse leader at 3-under 213.

It's been a rough go of it for the 2014 FedExCup champ in 2014-15, as he entered this week ranked a very mediocre 110th on the FEC points list. Perhaps all of that is changing for the good, as he ended his lap around TPC San Antonio with three consecutive birdies and is very much in the mix for the win this week. All of his birdies fell from inside of 11 feet. He will likely trail Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth when the day ends, but he has 18 holes to catch them on Sunday.
Mar 28 - 5:44 PM

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.
Mar 27 - 2:58 PM

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.
Mar 18 - 8:16 PM

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.
Feb 13 - 5:50 PM

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.
