Billy Horschel wins it all, the Tour Championship and the FedExCup.
Billy described it one word;
He cruised through the final round in -2 under par 68 to finish with a total of -11 under par, and a three shot victory. He spoke about his pregnant wife and how they had discussed this tournament;
“I remember flying home and talking with my wife and she said, ‘You’re probably just waiting for the season to be over and start a new season.’ I sort of was.”
“But at the same time, I knew my game was in the right shape and I just needed to get out of my own way. I needed to allow my golf game to show.”
“Hopefully, she’s not going into labor right now.”
“I was able to rise to the occasion and get the job done, and it just gives me so much confidence, such a thrill to accomplish something like this, especially with the guys I was going up against.”
Rory McIlroy failed to fire in the final round, carding a +1 over par 71, he finished the tournament tied in second place with Jim Furyk, at -8 under par.
Rory had to admit that Billy played the best golf;
“Billy deserved it, he played the best golf this week. I was making bad swings at the wrong time and getting punished for them.”
“When Billy was making bogey on ten I thought I had a decent chance and then I three-putt there for the second day in a row and I felt like any chance I had to win the golf tournament went.”
“To win two Majors, my first WGC event and give it a real good run in these FedEx events, I’m really proud of myself the way I hung in there and dug deep the last few weeks.”
“When I look back on the year as a whole it’s been my best year to date so I can’t complain.”
Rory and Jim will be heading off to the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland, the European Team will be happy that Billy Horschel will not be there, especially in the form that he is in right now.
