DP World Tour's flagship event at Wentworth is featuring just five Americans. Billy Horschel is one of them. This great golfer is angry with his compatriots because most of them did not want to come to the tournament and to play there.

Horschel believes that individuals had to come. In addition, he emphasized that they would have time to rest before the Ryder Cup. “I’m disappointed that more of my compatriots have not come. I understand some guys want some time off after the FedEx Cup.

The US Ryder Cup team was in Italy over the weekend. I wouldn’t expect them all to come and play here, but I thought some would welcome the chance to play an event in European conditions before the Ryder Cup. They could still go home next week and prepare”.

Billy Horschel on the reasons the US team didn't win on European soil

The US team has not been able to win the Ryder Cup on European soil for years. Horschel gave an interesting reason for this.

"I hear people asking why America hasn’t won a Ryder Cup over here in 30 years. Maybe some of it is the financial stranglehold the PGA Tour has over the game. We just don’t have to travel the world in order to make a lot of money, which is a pity.

It’s not as if our top players aren’t good enough or smart enough to adjust to the courses. But add it up and the end result is that we have been losing on courses the Europeans are a lot more familiar with”.

Horschel invites others to take advantage of the opportunity and come play in this tournament in the future. With London close at hand, the crowd is truly phenomenal, and Horschel is delighted with the reception. "I preach every year to guys on the PGA Tour that this is a great course for them.

There are guys whose games are made for Wentworth. And I know if they did come, they would love everything about this place. I mean, London is right there, a city that offers everything in entertainment. Plus, given the support I get from the crowds here, I have to think guys like Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas would get an even bigger reception, because of where they are in the world of golf”.
