Billy Horschel apologizes, explains controversial reaction to bogey

May 13, 2017

Billy Horschel has proven himself a fiery golfer, showing his emotions on the course, both in good situations and otherwise. He did so again on Friday at the Players Championship, and after receiving all kinds of flack on Twitter, he felt the need to apologize for it Saturday morning.

In the 99-second video below, Horschel explains what he considered an hard, tough bounce on the 13th hole, but knocked in a 5-wood chip for bogey. As you can see in the first video, Horschel’s reaction was swift as he tossed his club at his caddie, Josh Cassell and walked straight to the next hole leaving his caddie to get his ball from the cup.

Fair or foul, Horschel definitely took note of how golf fans reacted on social media.
