Billy Horschel dresses as human target on range at Torrey Pines

Billy Horschel got into the spirit of things on the range ahead of the Farmers Insurance Open on the PGA Tour. 

Horschel, 35, took to social media to show himself dressed up as a human target. And he said he got hit pretty good. 

But that didn't stop Horschel from smiling though, who was dressed up in a blue, red and white costume. 

Horschel has won six times on the PGA Tour and four times on the DP World Tour. 

The big West Ham United fan memorably won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth last September. 

It was a win that he thought could seriously put him into contention for a Ryder Cup selection for Steve Stricker's side.

He wasn't selected and later told how that snub left him with some "fire in the belly" going into 2022. 

Horschel didn't play a full schedule during the fall swing on the PGA Tour. 

He did, however, play at the World Wide Technology Championship in Mayakoba, Mexico, where Viktor Hovland won. 

Horschel followed that by finishing 23rd at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii and 36th at the Sony Open. 

Last year, Horschel missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open when Patrick Reed claimed victory in controversial circumstances.

Horschel finds himself priced at 90/1 with UK bookmakers to grab a victory at the notoriously difficult Torrey Pines. 

Elsewhere, Brooks Koepka (35/1) and Jordan Spieth (45/1) represent surprisingly good value to have a punt.
