Horschel turned professional in 2009. In December of the same year, he successfully gained a 2010 PGA Tour card through qualifying school. Injury and mediocre performances led Billy back and forth between the PGA Tour, Web.com Tour and Q-school. After his third successful attempt in four trips to Q-School, he earned his PGA Tour Card for 2013. He began his season making the cut in every tournament he entered. He had three consecutive top-10 finishes before his breakthrough win at the 2013 Zurich Classic of New Orleans in his 61st PGA Tour start. Horschel earned his second win at the 2014 BMW Championship. The following week, he won The Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club and with it the FedEx Cup. The win also moved Horschel to 14th in the OWGR. The American now has 5 PGA Tour titles to his name after winning the AT&T Byron Nelson in 2017 and the Zurich Classic of New Orleans (with Scott Piercy) in 2018. Horschel’s fine performances this season led him to a 5th place finish in the FedEx Cup. This will be his third appearance at Sheshan Golf Club, his best finish is a T-35.
