Horschel's wife gives birth to healthy baby girl


Seems not even baby Skylar could wait to celebrate the FedEx Cup title with her father.

On Tuesday night, two days after capturing the biggest title in golf, Billy Horschel tweeted this news to his nearly 60,000 followers:



Horschel’s wife, Brittany, was due Sept. 27 with the couple’s first child. At the Tour Championship, Horschel said that he wouldn’t leave East Lake even if his wife went into labor.

“She understands what this victory and FedEx Cup playoffs and what it all means,” he said last weekend. “There wasn’t much discussion. I brought up the question. She said: ‘You’re staying.’” 

And so, with seemingly everything going his way over the past few weeks, Horschel was able to deposit $11.44 million into his account and get home in time to witness the birth of his baby girl.

Fortunately, all that cash can buy a lot of diapers.
