Horschel's wife opens up on battle with alcoholism

Horschel's wife opens up on battle with alcoholism

But it's because their worlds are filled with occupational rainbows and unicorns that there's a tendency to ignore the most basic elements of human existence.

"The last year has been one of the most enjoyable years of my life".

As easy at it may be to overlook the obvious, life can be just a messy for a Tour player as it is for anyone else.

Billy Horschel let his wife do the talking after his show of emotion during Sunday's PGA Tour victory, his first in three years. It wasn't his place. Billy Horschel meets with media at the Dean & Deluca Invitational golf tournament at Colonial Country Club, Tuesday, May 23, 2017, in Fort Worth, Texas. I'm ready to start helping people, ' " he said.

"Just life gets in the way sometimes and, you know, it's truly special to be winning on something on a day like this that's I honestly".

The wife of Billy Horschel has publicly revealed her battle with alcoholism and how it contributed to her husband's downturn in form.

The 30-year-old spent two months last summer in a treatment centre, during which time Horschel looked after the couple's young daughter, Sylar, and also moved the family into a new home.

Calling it a "very sad, scary and trying time", Brittany credited Billy with being her rock. He won for the fourth time on the PGA Tour and for the first time since taking the 2014 Tour Championship for the FedEx Cup title.

"I spent the end of May through July a year ago down in a treatment centre in south Florida receiving the life tools that help me win against my disease every day", the statement continued.

Billy Horschel plays his shot from the first tee.

He told his wife she didn't have to go public, that this could all remain private. Like it is for many, Palmer's job became an outlet, an escape from reality, but it was always fleeting.

But after losing his exempt status in the majors by dropping out of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking, he made a decision to play both events. "I'm not able to talk about it right now", he said.

His latest victory evidently meant a lot to Horschel, as it would for any golfer, but he had more reason to celebrate than most.

"When you're in the position like that, you have to go for it and try to win", Day said.

With two emotional weights lifted, Horschel seems ready to take dead aim at becoming the only player other than Ben Hogan to win the Nelson and Colonial in the same year.

Brittany Horschel said in her post that her husband respectfully left her to answer it however she wanted, if at all.
