PGA Tour star Billy Horschel says he's disappointed more Americans don't make the trip across the pond to play in the forthcoming BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
In comments to Golf Digest, Horschel conceded he didn't do a great job in the early part of his career playing in Europe.
But since he made his debut in this tournament four years ago it's now become a love affair for the American.
"I told someone if I could play this tournament 25 times a year, I'd be a very happy man," the 2021 champion of this event said.
The tournament is now played in September instead of May.
Horschel told GD:
Over the last three decades the U.S. Ryder Cup sides have endured misery.
The 36-year-old pondered whether that had something to do with his peers playing solely in America.
Despite imploring U.S. golfers to tee it up at Wentworth, Horschel said he'd 'hate to see' some DP World Tour members miss out as a result.
"It's a fine balance," he said.
Whether you love him or hate him, one thing you cannot accuse Horschel of is not being honest.
