Billy Horschel breaks down in tears after dismal first round at Muirfield Village

Annoyed by a completed first round in 84, seven-time PGA Tour tournament winner Billy Horschel couldn’t hold back tears during the press briefing following his dismal performance Thursday in Ohio. On the verge of missing his 7th cut of the season, the defending champion at Muirfield admits going through the most complicated period of his career.

6 bogeys, 3 double-bogeys, and not a single birdie, Billy Horschel looked in vain for reasons for hope at the end of his first day on the Muirfield Village course where he brilliantly won last year.

The 36-year-old Floridian who missed the cut at the Genesis Invitational, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Players and the PGA Championship has only one top 10 finish in 2023 at the World Match Play Championships where he was eliminated in eighth by Cameron Young 5&4!

“It’s tough because I feel like we’re working well with the team. I didn’t hit well at the pro-am and at the practice video it didn’t look that bad. But on a course like this it does not forgive. My confidence is at a career low. I think never in my entire golfing career. It’s funny, as low as it sounds, it looks like I’m not that far at the same time.

With a card of 84 returned on Thursday, he points to the penultimate place of the tournament, 17 strokes behind leader Davis Riley! Let’s emphasize the extreme professionalism shown by the American who did not shrink and answered the journalists’ questions with great lucidity.
