Billy Horschel on difficult moments in his career: I broke down, and I cried

Billy Horschel cannot be satisfied with his form in the last few months. The problem with Horschel is that he is failing to realize his intentions, in fact, and is experiencing some of the most difficult times in his career so far.

In an interview with the media, Horschel recalled the moment when he 'broke down a little bit.' “I had two low points. Bay Hill after missing that cut, we had a discussion with Mark Horton, my stats guy and Mark Fulcher, who was caddying for me.

And it was a lively discussion for about 45 minutes in the parking lot. I went back to the room - I think even before I got back to the room, just in my car, just thinking about the discussion and thinking about where the game was and where I want to be and where I’m not at the moment.

I sort of just broke down a little bit. ”- Horschel said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com


Billy Horschel: I cried

Despite being known as a passionate golfer who is always striving to achieve more from himself, Billy Horschel seems to be quite a different person in his private life.

According to Horschel, he is not particularly emotional, but a difficult moment in his career has caused him to shed a tear. “As much as people have seen me get upset and a little angry on the golf course, on the flip side of that, I’m not very much an emotional guy that way.

I’m not a sappy guy - not, I wouldn’t say sappy, not in a bad way - but I don’t cry very often. But I broke down, and I cried a little bit. I had tears”. During his time at Hilton Head, he was disappointed with both himself and his performance.

During that time, he was particularly emotional, and he was thinking about a lot of things at the same time. “I had another one at Hilton Head after missing that cut. I played a decent first round and was in a good position after the second, going into round two, and didn’t play a good round.

And I mean it was just an emotional, it was just a mental sort of grind and stress and fatigue and just on the range there for about 30 seconds just bending down, I had my hands in my head - or had my head in my hands, just sort of, just trying to hold back the tears for a little bit”.
