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 Chaska Town Course and Hazeltine National Golf Club outside Minneapolis. His opening-round 60 at Chaska 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. Horschel was a four-time All-American, including three first-team honors, and the SEC Player of the Year in 2007 and '09. 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 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 in 17 starts. Finished 3rd at the True South Classic and ended the year 147th on the money list. At Q-School, he finished T-4th, securing his Tour card for 2013.

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).
