AVONDALE, La. (AP) There's something about the rhythm of life in the Big Easy that appeals to Billy Horschel, who acknowledges that he can be a little "hyper" for even his own liking on the PGA Tour.
Horschel earned his first PGA Tour victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans a year ago. It remains his lone triumph at golf's highest level, though he isn't shy about saying that he likes his chances of defending his title.
"Something about this city just puts me at a sense of ease," Horschel said, adding that he's found New Orleans to have the best dining options of any tour stop. "We go out to dinner pretty much every night and we don't talk about golf much. We just talk about other things and we're having a good time."
