Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Contents - WITH SAM WEINMAN

Other play­ers won ma­jor cham­pi­onships in 2017, but no win car­ried more emo­tional sig­nif­i­cance than when Billy Horschel cap­tured the AT&T By­ron Nel­son in May. The play­off vic­tory, Horschel’s first ti­tle in more than two years, also came a year to the day af­ter his wife, Brit­tany, en­tered treat­ment for al­co­holism. The cou­ple had kept their strug­gle pri­vate, but the day af­ter the tour­na­ment, Brit­tany shared on so­cial me­dia her dif­fi­cult road to so­bri­ety, and both have since sought to use their jour­ney as in­spi­ra­tion for oth­ers.
