Billy Horschel: “This is the best year I’ve had”

Billy Horschel believes 2021 would definitely go down as the best year of his career so far if he secured the Race to Dubai title, something no American has done before. After winning the WGC – Dell Technologies Match Play and BMW PGA Championship in a memorable campaign, Horschel goes into the season ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai second in the standings, with only fellow American Collin Morikawa ahead of him. Victory for either Horschel or Morikawa in this week’s event would see them clinch the Race to Dubai crown, while four other players – Tyrrell Hatton, Min Woo Lee, Paul Casey and Matt Fitzpatrick – could finish the season as European Number One if they win and other results go their way. Horschel has had some successful years during his career, having won the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour in 2014, but he thinks 2021 would rank above the others if he added the Race to Dubai to his CV this week.

“This is probably the best year I’ve had of my career. I know I won the FedEx Cup, but that year I didn’t play great until the very end, and this year I’ve been pretty consistent. But to win two big tournaments in the WGC Match Play and the BMW PGA Championship, those are two massive events to win, especially when you sit (and look) back on your career resume and you say these are the events I won. And then to add possibly the Race to Dubai, be the first American to win the Order of Merit, obviously by far would be the best of my career. And I think that it’s just another step closer to – ultimately my goal is to be a Hall of Famer, to have a heck of a career that I can be inducted into the Hall of Fame at one point in my career. There’s a lot on the line this week, and we’ll see how it all plays out when it comes to Sunday.”

A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty. This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the “secret weapon” of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.

“He’s a good guy, he’s been through a lot as a sportsman and he’s the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I’m not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period. “. These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed ‘the Baltimore Shark’, important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. “The mental aspect is something I’ve worked on a lot with him lately. I’m really lucky to have him around. Besides, he’s a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value.” This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
