    Billy Horschel let his wife do the talking after keeping his emotions to himself following his first PGA Tour victory in three years on Sunday. “I write this nervously, skeptically, but also proudly because I have embraced the woman I have become over the past year,” Horschel’s wife, Brittany, wrote in the post.

Thompson shot her third 6-under 65 on Sunday to finish off a nearly flawless wire-to-wire victory in the Kingsmill Championship with a tournament-record 20-under 264 total. She broke the record of 19 under at Kingsmill's River Course set by Annika Sorenstam in 2008. The victory came in Thompson's third event since she lost the ANA Inspiration in a playoff after being penalized four strokes for a rules violation reported by a television viewer, and she said she hopes chatter about that situation can finally be put to rest.
