Billy Horschel has Rory in his sights

2014 09 454878570

Second at the Deutsche Bank Championship last week, and now this week’s BMW Championship winner, Billy Horschel is a man full of confidence.


The 27-year-old won the penultimate FedExCup event of the year at Cherry Hills, Colorado by two-shots, after final round 69 left him on 14-under-par.

Following the win, the world No.23 says he wants to use his victory as a springboard to join the game’s elite.

“Two wins in the last two years is a lot,” said the American. “Not many guys do that. Hopefully this win will give me some more added confidence and shoot me up there into an upper echelon player that's where I want to be.
"I want to be in the final group, or near the lead, on every tournament." - Billy Horschel

“I want to be where the Rory McIlroys are, the Tigers are, the Phil Mickelsons, the Bubba Watsons, the guys that are winning majors.

“I want to be there with them. I want to compete with them on a Sunday at a major championship, go head to head with them and have a chance to win majors.

“So, that's what I’m looking forward to. I want to be in the final group, or near the lead, on every tournament on Sunday to have a chance to win.”

Billy Horschel expects big performance at Tour Championship

Horschel is now second in the FedExCup standings behind Chris Kirk with one event reaming, the Tour Championship. The winner of the PGA Tour’s end of season closer is awarded 10 million dollars, something Horschel believes he has a great chance of winning, given his recent form.
"I'm probably going to play very well." - Billy Horschel

“I like my chances,” said last year’s Zurich Classic champ. “If I was a betting man, I would put some money on me. It's going to be great.

“I think it's going to be a great week next week. I'm not going to go ahead and guarantee a victory right now, but I will say that I'm probably going to play very well. I will have a chance to win on Sunday.”
