Billy Horschel


Most swings on the PGA Tour are built for either big distance or hitting lasers down the sprinkler line. And they're not hard to peg. Bubba Watson makes a giant backswing and really drives his legs. Result: 350-yard bombs. Zach Johnson stays centered over the ball and swings way shorter. Result: three out of four fairways. But sometimes we see a player like Billy Horschel who's a bomber and a control guy. Let's see what Billy does to keep up with the big boys and also keep the ball in play. Pick which tips you want, or be like Billy and take them all.
