Billy Horschel
32-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Horschel made a mad dash at the end of the season and actually had a chance to win the FedEx Cup Playoffs, but he fell just short. Horschel is no stranger to making runs at the end of the season as he made a furious run to a FedEx title in 2014. At the time, it was Horschel's second consecutive season above $3.5 million in earnings and it looked like he was ascending to the top-tier of the PGA Tour. Horschel's game fell off the following two seasons, but he got back on track two seasons ago with his 4th career win on the PGA Tour. He picked up win No. 5 last season and he appears to be heading in the right directions. That said, the bar is set too high for salary cap purposes this season. In draft leagues he's a second- or third-round pick. Read Past Outlooks
T4 at Wentworth
September 23, 2019
Horschel fired a seven-under 65 on Sunday at the BMW PGA Championship to finish 15-under and tied for fourth.
ANALYSIS
Horschel has now finished top-10 in three of his last five starts dating back to the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, rising to 32nd in the Official World Golf Ranking as a result. His brilliant final round at Wentworth included five birdies and an eagle to no birdies, though he still fell five strokes shy of champion Danny Willett.

When Horschel won the FedExCup playoffs in 2014, it felt like he had been around for quite a while, but it was actually just his fourth full season on the PGA Tour. It was that fact that led to a massive increase in expectations. Horschel played well in the two seasons that followed, but nowhere near as well as we thought he would after such a strong 2014 campaign. That said, Horschel appeared to get back on track last season and his prospects for the future look good. Good enough to improve significantly on his numbers from last season though? Probably not.
It feels like Horschel has been on the PGA Tour for quite a while, but he last season was just his sixth on tour. In that time, he's had two poor seasons, two amazing season and two average seasons. The strange thing is, the types of seasons he's had have come in pairs. He started poorly, went on a tear for two years, then fell back to Earth the past two seasons. The upside is certainly there for Horschel and as such, he's a decent salary cap selection this season. In drafts he should go well above where he ended-up on last year's money list, somewhere in the fifth or sixth round. fifth or sixth round.
What a finish to the 2014 season for Horschel. Like Henrik Stenson the year prior, Horschel rode a hot-streak all the way to the finish and a $10 million bonus. The good news for salary cap players is that the $10 million bonus does not count towards his official money for the season, so his number is actually reasonable. Yes, it's on the high-side for a player of Horschel's caliber, but if he builds off his playoff win, he could improve upon that number in 2015. As such, he's not a bad salary cap pick for 2015, but there's certainly some risk involved. In draft leagues he should go early in the second-round.
Horschel was the story of the first-half of the 2013 season. He had shown some flashes the previous year, but nothing like what he showed us in 2013. Horschel went from a guy trying to make the top-125, to a guy gunning for majors and multiple wins. The problem with Horschel and the question you have to ask of any other golfer that improves so significantly over the course of one season is -- can he keep it up? Horschel looks the part and his game doesn't look like it will drop off significantly, but as for an uptick in his numbers? Probably not likely either. Horschel should go in the 15-25 range in drafts and he's not a good option for salary cap leagues.
Horschel began the 2010 as a PGA TOUR rookie, but four starts into his rookie season, he had to call it quits due to a wrist injury. As the 2011 season approached, Horschel had two options, the first would be to use his major medical extension to play on the PGA TOUR in 2011 or give Q-School a try and improve his positioning. He chose the later, and because of that he won't have quite as much pressure at the start of the season. That said, he is coming off a significant injury and his limited experience last season on the PGA TOUR probably won't help him much. Still, he was a three-time All American at Florida so he has upside.
Horschel is a University of Florida product who earned First Team All-America honors for the third time in his senior year and was named the 2009 SEC player of the year has earned his PGA Tour card at this year's Q School. This young man has some serious game and could make a splash as a tour rookie if he can start the year off with some solid tournaments.
