My Shot: Billy Horschel

You don't get to know many truly great people , but I'd put my coach at Florida, Buddy Alexander, on that list. He taught me how to really play golf. Advanced stuff on course and self-management I hadn't heard before. Life lessons and wisdom you can't get anywhere else. When he was recruiting me, he got my parents on the phone and said, "Every young man who comes through here believes he will someday make it to the PGA Tour. Many will have the right stuff to do that, and some will not. I've been around and will know whether they have that ability. My promise to you is, if Billy doesn't have it, I will see to it that he leaves here fully prepared to have success in another walk of life." That sold them, and it sold me. Coach Alexander retired at the end of 2014, but I'll always feel close to him and grateful for how he looked after me.
