NORTON, MASSACHUSETTS – Space Coast Sports Hall of Famer Billy Horschel was nipped by Chris Kirk in the Deutsche Bank Championship by two strokes on Monday.
Entering the day in second place, Horschel had a chance to win with an Eagle on the par-five final hole, but launched his second shot into the rough, eventually finishing with his first bogey of the day to fall 13 under par.
Horschel ended up tied with Geoff Ogilvy for second place, a result that the Aussie used to propel himself into next week’s BMW Championship at the Cherry Hills Country Club in Colorado.
Horschel now heads into the FedEx Cup in 20th place going into the Cherry Hills tournament. He played golf at Bayside High and graduated from the University of Florida in 2009, where he was a four-time All-American.
Only five players in Gator history have received the award four times.
Horschel was elected to the Space Coast Sports Hall of Fame in May 2014.
