Who Won the Bronze Medal in Golf?
The Bronze Medal Winner – Billy Horschel
Billy Horschel was the winner of the bronze medal at this year’s WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Horschel entered the tournament ranked 19th in the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR). He had an impressive performance throughout the tournament, finishing with a score of 18-under par 266 after four rounds of play. This placed him in a tie for third place overall with Kevin Kisner and Russell Henley at -18 for the tournament.
Horschel started his first round strong with a seven under par 65 that put him into contention early on in the tournament. He followed this up with another solid round on Friday to enter Saturday’s final two rounds in third place overall and only two strokes behind leader Dustin Johnson at -12 for the tournament. Though he was unable to make up any ground on Johnson on Saturday (shooting even par), he played consistently well enough on Sunday to secure his bronze medal finish at -18 for the tournament and just three strokes behind Johnson’s winning score of 15-under par 263.
This is Horschel’s second career win in an official PGA TOUR event and his first top-three finish since winning THE PLAYERS Championship back in 2014. It also marks his highest individual finish in a WGC event to date, as he had previously finished tied for fourth place twice but still had yet to earn a top-three finish entering this week’s competition.
