Billy Horschel Had A Rough 24 Hours
This is a story about a man. A man who is a 29-year-old PGA Tour Pro. A man who has won the FedEx Cup before. This is a story about Billy Horschel. Billy Horschel, flew down the back nine of the RSM Classic, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, with one thing on his mind; to win the RSM Classic . With all the confidence in the world, he found himself in a 5-man playoff, all of which were at 17-under-par. He had practiced, he had trained, and he visualized himself winning the tournament countless times. Until, the first hole of the playoff! With one foot left on his putt, he stood over the ball knowing he has made putts like this a billion times. He lines up his putter, he sets his feet, the back-swing, the forward-swing, and THE CROWD GOES WILD! NO WAIT! HE PUSHED IT WIDE RIGHT? Billy Horschel missed a one-footer to get to the next playoff hole? Yes, sadly and surprisingly, Horschel pushed a putt painfully close on the first playoff hole. All the time he practiced and all the time he trained was wiped away when his dreams of becoming a 4-time PGA Tour winner were ruined.
No matter how many times we’ve ALL been here, it still hurts to see it happen.https://t.co/nd6KsRrV6v

Nerves? Horschel says no.
“They say you learn more from losses than wins,” Horschel tweeted later. “I believe it’s true. For me, I didn’t take my time over that short putt. Simple as that.”
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE……

Not 24-hours after he missed a million dollar putt, Billy Horschel took to twitter with a revealing picture that he had his wisdom teeth pulled. Why Horschel was in the death chair, in the worst place in the world (the dentist office), the other four competitors at the RSM Classic were still battling it out on the golf course! You wanna talk about a terrible, frustrating, and horrible 24 hours? Billy Horschel experienced it in real life!
Sorry Billy, it has been a rough 24-hours for you! But we all know you will return and learn from your mistakes! If we have learned anything here, it is to never, I MEAN NEVER, schedule a dentist appointment on a Monday. Nothing good happens on a Monday!
