Gator golfer Billy Horschel set to begin pro career

On Monday, Florida golfer Billy Horschel was named an All-American for the fourth consecutive year. Next week, the senior will play in his first pro event, the St. Jude Classic in Memphis, which begins next Thursday. Horschel has been granted a sponsor exemption to play.

Horshel is just the fifth Gator golfer to be named an All-American four times. Matt Every, Gary Koch and Camilo Villegas are the only others  to earn First Team honors three times, and Horschel is the only Gator to earn three First Team honors and a Second Team honor.

“I’m extremely happy for Billy,” head coach Buddy Alexander said. “He’s worked hard and he deserves this.''
