Billy Horschel Wins at BMW Championship: Henrik Stenson Following

The BMW Championship held in CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. this past weekend.  The course to host the championship was the Cherry Hills Country Club.

For a recap on the players standings,  “Henrik Stenson finished 11 strokes behind  Billy Horschel, who closed with a 69 for a 72-hole total of 14-under 266, two strokes better than Bubba Watson, and then described his situation as “win-win.” He explained: “East Lake is a really great golf course, and I would really like to come back and defend and to play it again. But I finally get a bit of a break.” (NYTimes.Com)

More on the winner, the Florida native, Billy Horschel— “Horschel claimed the biggest title of his career so far at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. The American won the BMW Championship with a score of -14 after an impressive display over the weekend. The 27-year-old from Florida laid the foundation for his success on Saturday, when he opened a three-shot lead over the world-class field at the third of four FedExCup Playoff events. He then produced a nerveless display on the demanding course at Cherry Hills Country Club on Sunday.”

“It means a lot to win,” said Horschel. “I hope it is another step towards something bigger and greater down the road. This victory gives me added confidence. I want to be where the Rory McIlroys, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and the guys winning majors are. Denver was a fantastic venue for the BMW Championship. A lot of fans came out and supported us. I hope we can come back in the future.” (bmwchampionshipusa.com)
