Topic - Billy Horschel
There's something about the rhythm of life in the Big Easy that appeals to Billy Horschel, who acknowledges that he can be a little "hyper" for even his own liking on the PGA Tour.
Horschel, who tied for fourth place at the U.S. Open two weeks ago, began the first round with a 51-foot birdie on the par-3 10th hole.
Billy Horschel, who tied for fourth in the real U.S. Open two weeks ago at Merion, began his day with a 50-foot birdie putt, added a pair of birdies over the next three holes and then hung on for a 68. That was the best score among the early starters.
Considering the history of bad pants in golf, Billy Horschel had to go a long way to stand out.
No one could catch Mickelson or Horschel as the second round wrapped up early Saturday at the U.S. Open, where sunny skies helped dry muddy Merion Golf Club.
Five things to look for Saturday in the third round of the U.S. Open:
Their 1-under totals of 139 made them the only players under par for the tournament; nearly half the field had yet to complete the second round, which was halted because of darkness.
Tiger Woods cared more about the number of rounds left at Torrey Pines than the number of PGA Tour wins belonging to the guys chasing him.
Webb Simpson shot a 1-under 69 on Saturday and is tied for third heading into the final round of the McGladrey Classic.
"It still shocks me he hasn't won because he had such a great year last year," Horschel said.
"Something about this city just puts me at a sense of ease," Horschel said, adding that he's found New Orleans to have the best dining options of any tour stop. "We go out to dinner pretty much every night and we don't talk about golf much. We just talk about other things and we're having a good time."
