Billy Horschel believes he saw a UFO

Published

“I just think that to think we’re the only people in this universe that are alive or living or anything like that is sort of naive in my opinion.” That’s a statement from Billy Horschel that I think most people would agree with.

Most people, however, don’t have an experience to support that belief. PGATour.com’s Helen Ross talked with Billy Horschel about his close encounter (how did they get on the subject in the first place?).

Apparently, when Horschel was younger, he was riding in a car with his mother and younger brother along U.S. 1 in central Florida. It was then that he saw, as Ross writes, “arched lights glowed yellow above the water as if to outline a bridge.”

“I was like that’s weird, the Melbourne Causeway looks so nice and then it hit us that we had passed the Melbourne Causeway and there’s no other bridge for the next 40 or 50 miles,” Horschel said. “So it was just weird that there were six perfect lights that were hovering over the Indian River in a perfect little arch that looked like a bridge.”

So many people saw the lights that night and called the police that the local newspaper ran an article about the phenomenon the next day.

According to Horschel

“Millions of people have seen UFOs and have video recordings. And when you think about pilots — these guys are in the skies hours and hours and they know what a plane is and they know stuff and when they talk about their experiences and what they’ve seen and they can’t justify what they’ve seen, it sort of makes you think a little bit.”

Millions? Ross noted that Horschel’s peers tease him about his flying saucer frenzy, and that he is prepared for more needling following her article.

As we love Billy Horschel at GolfWRX, he reads the site, and is a friend of our TG2 podcast, I’ll just say, plenty of respect for sticking to your guns, Billy Ho, whether it’s about the greens at Chambers Bay or little green men.

    Likely he was standing next to his wife, and got a contact high which caused him to hallucinate

    UFO’s are simply an agglomeration of the lost souls who are stuck between heaven, earth and the 16th hole after a hellish 5 hour round of golf.

      He’s always struck me as being a bit ‘light’ in the brain department.

Published

Last year, Cleveland Golf introduced Grandpa Jamie (Canadian long drive professional Jamie Sadlowski), the pensioner who can bomb it 350-plus yards effortlessly, in a viral video which garnered over four million views on YouTube.

Well, Grandpa Jamie is back, and he’s been pranking unsuspecting golfers on his weekend getaway in Orange County,

This time, however, he’s brought along Uncle Jake (9-time PGA Tour winner Peter Jacobsen), and you can check out all of the fun and games the two got up to while catching poor unsuspecting golfers off guard in the embedded tweet below.
