Billy Horschel

Horschel's first love in sports was baseball, but an injury when he was 14 led him to play golf. Born in Grant, Fla., he comes from a blue-collar family. Neither of his parents went to college, but they worked hard to make sure that he and his two brothers were able to get a college education. Golf opened the door for Horschel and he was able to get a golf scholarship from the University of Florida.
Horschel won individual medalist honors at the 2006 U.S. Amateur, shooting a two-day score of five under par (60-78 - 138) at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota. His opening-round 60 at Chaska Town Course remains an 18-hole USGA championship record, but he failed to make it past the third round of match play. Horschel also played as an amateur at the 2006 U.S. Open, where he missed the cut.
He played for coach Buddy Alexander's Florida Gators men's golf team. He was a four-time All-American, including three first-team honors, and the SEC Player of the Year in 2007 and '09. He also was a 2008 PING Southeast All-Region selection. Horschel graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor's degree in sports management in 2009.
Represented the United States at the Palmer Cup in 2007 and '08, earning four-and-a-half-points. He posted a 3-1 record for the victorious 2007 USA Walker Cup Team.
Turned professional in 2009 and in December that year earned his PGA Tour card for 2010 through the Q-School. A wrist injury, though, limited him to four Tour events, and he did not make the cut in any of them. In December 2010, he regained his Tour card through qualifying school to back up his medical extension.
2011 Notes: After missing his first three cuts, Horschel finished T-13th at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. He missed 10 cuts in his next 13 events and went into the Greenbrier Classic ranked 179th on the money list. Finished T-66th at Greenbrier, then earned his first career top-10 finish with a T-10th at Reno-Tahoe. A T-7th at the Frys.com helped him end the year 140th on the money list. Having finished T-103rd in Q-School, he had to rely on his top-150 status to play on the Tour for 2012.
2012 Notes: Only missed two cuts and had two top-25 finishes. Finished 3rd at the True South Classic, and ended the year 147th on the money list. At Q-School, he finished T-4th, earning his Tour card for 2013.
2013 Notes: Made the cut in 22 of 26 tournaments he entered. Had three consecutive top-10 finishes before his breakthrough win at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in his 61st PGA Tour start. Horschel made six consecutive birdies in the final round and won by a shot over D.A. Points. The victory and a T-4th at the U.S. Open moved him to 5th place in the FedExCup standings, 5th on the PGA Tour money list, and 37th in the Official World Golf Ranking a week before the PGA Championship. Played in all four FedExCup Playoff events, and ended his year with a T-7th at the Tour Championship. Was 16th in the FedExCup standings and 13th on the money list.
2014 Notes: In a great closing stretch, Horschel won the FedExCup with a furious rally that included a T-2nd at the Deutsche Bank Championship and victories at the BMW Championship and Tour Championship. That stretch helped him win the FedExCup Playoffs. His victory at East Lake meant that in one day, he earned the $1,440,000 first-place check for winning the tournament, a $10-million bonus for winning the FedExCup and a five-year PGA Tour exemption. At age 27 years, 9 months, 7 days, he became the youngest FedExCup champion in history (previous youngest was Bill Haas in 2011 at 29 years, 4 months and 1 day). Also became the fifth player to win consecutive FedExCup Playoffs events, joining Rory McIlroy (2012), Camilo Villegas (2008), Vijay Singh (2008) and Tiger Woods (2007).
2015 Notes: Finished 3rd at the Valero Texas Open, T-11th at The Memorial and T-8th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The defending FedExCup champion wasn't able to return to East Lake GC to defend his Tour Championship and ended the year 66th in the FedExCup standings and 54th on the money list.
2016 Notes: Played 20 PGA Tour events, making 17 cuts and finishing in the top-10 five times. Best finish was T-4th at the Valero Texas Open. He placed T-5th at the Wyndham Championship. Finished 50th in the FedExCup standings and 57th on the money list.
2017 Notes: In his third start of the season, tied for the lead and in a five-way playoff, Horschel was eliminated on the first extra hole when he missed a putt of three feet. Got into another playoff at the AT&T Byron Nelson and won that playoff on the first extra hole when Jason Day missed a short par putt. Had two more top-10s, with a T-4th at the Honda Classic and FedEx St. Jude Classic. His season ended at the BMW Championship in the FedExCup Playoffs. He placed 42nd in the final standings.
2018 Notes: Played 27 events and made 17 cuts with six top-10 finishes. Was 5th in the FedExCup standings, his best showing since winning the FedExCup in 2014. Teamed with Scott Piercy to shoot a final-round five-under 67 (Foursomes) to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans by one shot over Jason Dufner/Pat Perez. The team shot 65-73-61-67 - 266 (-22) using Four-ball (R1/R3) and Foursomes (R2/R4) formats, including a bogey-free final round. The win marked the fifth of his career in his 191st start at the age of 31 years, 4 months, 22 days. In his first start at the Barbasol Championship, posted scores of 65-66-68-67 - 266 (-22) to finish T-2nd with Richy Werenski and Tom Lovelady. Played Keene Trace Golf Club's 16 par-5 holes for the week in a collective 13-under par. Also was T-5th at the RBC Heritage, two shots from the Kodaira/Kim playoff. Entered the Northern Trust 41st in the FedExCup standings, and finished T-3rd, five shots behind winner Bryson DeChambeau. Withdrew from the Dell Technologies Championship and the next week was T-3rd at the BMW Championship, one shot from the Bradley/Rose playoff. At the Tour Championship, he finished 2nd, two shots behind winner Tiger Woods and placed 5th in the FedExCup standings.
2019 Notes: Best finish was 8th at the Farmers Insurance Open. Was T-9th at the Memorial after he shot a final round 68.
