Billy Horschel is a golf player who often knows how to react impulsively and be nervous. However, many are bothered and criticized him for his behavior. Horschel is aware of his shortcomings, but he is just such a character and sometimes 'burns out' in the desire to win.
“My competitive fire burns the way it burns,” Horschel said ahead of this week’s Zurich Classic for golf.com “I envy Scottie Scheffler and some of these guys that they hit bad shots, they’re not playing well, you can’t tell.
They’re just enjoying the game of golf and they’re having fun and laughing. Horschel tries to stay calm, but rarely succeeds. “I can be that way for a little bit, but it just runs way too ho* inside me, and I can’t stand not being able to play to the level that I expect of myself on a day-to-day basis.
There’s times that it boils over, and you know what, it happens. I’ve apologized many times for it and I’ll apologize in the future for it, too, but that’s me”.
Horschel: I don’t care anymore
Horschel has obviously made some new decisions in life, and he no longer seems to want to watch the reactions and comments of others.
“My fire is going to be that way the rest of my life,” he said. “This is going to sound blunt, it’s going to sound bad, but if you don’t like it, I honestly don’t care anymore. I’ve cared enough over the last 13 years of my career to try and please everyone that watches me, and you know what, I can’t do anything more.
I’ve done everything I can. If you don’t like me for some reason, I don’t care anymore”.
“If he gets running too hott his week,” Burns said, “I’ll just go give him a hug and calm him down a little bit”.
