Determination, grit and focus were all on display Sunday afternoon at the BMW Championship as Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Billy Horschel posted a final round 1-under 69 to secure the victory and move into second place in the FedEx Cup standings.

“Yeah, it's great to win this championship,” said Horschel during his post-round interview.

“I felt pretty good starting the day off. I had a great warm-up session on the range. I hit a really good drive on No. 1, made birdie. Hit a bad second shot on 2, but came back with another birdie. After that I was sort of on grind mode.”

And for Billy, being in “grind mode” means keeping just about every aspect of his game sharp as he ranked in the top 15 for the tournament in Driving Distance (9), Driving Accuracy (14), Greens in Regulation (2) and Strokes Gained Putting (1).

Billy also credits this win to hard work with his team and his focus on constantly improving as a player.

Billy will be looking to carry this momentum of solid play into the Tour Championship this week.

"I'm a lot better player than I was six months ago. I understand my game a lot better… we have worked hard to become better players and do the right thing course management wise. And this is just another stepping stone to hopefully a lot bigger things in the future.”

It’s this type of focus and determination that we can all appreciate and hope to add into our own golf games.

Congratulations, Billy!
