FedEx Cup winner Billy Horschel insists he won’t change his approach as he prepares to return to competitive action after a break away from golf.
The American will return in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open this week after spending some time with his family following the birth of his first child.
Horschel may have claimed the FedEx Cup but he unfortunately missed out on a Ryder Cup place due to the USA’s selection policy.
After winning the Tour Championship he was able to spend some time at home and admitted that missing out on the Ryder Cup was actually a blessing in disguise.
The 27-year-old enjoyed a superb campaign last season and is adamant he won’t change his approach.
He said: “Obviously with being the FedEx Cup champion you can have expectations soar but that’s not going to change.
“I’m just going to keep that same mental approach. I don’t expect anything less, I don’t expect anything more from myself with being a FedEx Cup champion.
“I’m just going to have the same expectations I’ve had ever since I started playing this game.
“I’m going to keep getting better. I’m going to keep working hard, and if I just keep making small strides at improving in this game then hopefully everything else will take care of itself – that’s the way it did at the BMW and Tour Championship.”
Horschel is currently 13.00 to win the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open but he will have to watch over his shoulder as in-form Hideki Matsuyama is also playing in the tournament.
