If there’s anyone who could sympathize with Billy Horschel, it’s him.
Watson has been criticized for making his picks two weeks too early, which prevented him from having the recent two-time champion on the team. But with Horschel’s wife, Brittany, expecting the couple’s first child that week, it might be a moot point anyway.
“I honestly wasn't going to play the Ryder Cup if we couldn't induce labor early,” he explained after winning the FedEx Cup. “The birth of my child – my first child – I wanted to be there for her and be there for our baby girl. But you know, when I started playing bad this year, I sort of put it out of my mind that I wasn't going to be picked. And obviously I wasn't picked, and it's going to work out perfectly.”
