Moved back into the world’s top 20 with victory at March’s World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play, where his victims included PGA champion Collin Morikawa, Tommy Fleetwood and, in the final, Scottie Scheffler.

Horschel reached 12th on the rankings in 2014, the year in which he won the final two tournaments of the FedEx Cup play-offs and took home the $10million bonus.

First he finished two clear of Bubba Watson in the BMW Championship, then he had the same margin of victory over Rory McIlroy and Jim Furyk at the Tour Championship. Two days later he became a father for the first time.

He had initially encountered McIlroy in the 2007 Walker Cup at Royal County Down, where their two singles clashes ended 1-1.

Horschel produced a tournament-record 60 in the strokeplay stage of the 2006 U.S. Amateur and qualified for the U.S. Open that year. At the same event in 2013 he shared the halfway lead with Phil Mickelson and finished joint fourth in his first major as a professional.

His PGA Tour successes also include a play-off victory over Jason Day in the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson and a pairs win alongside Scott Piercy at the 2018 Zurich Classic.
