LAS VEGAS -- Billy Horschel was the hottest player on the planet last season, closing with a runner-up and two consecutive victories to claim the FedExCup. He's making the first start of his FedExCup defense at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and participants in PGATOUR.COM's fantasy game are hoping he can keep up the pace. Horschel was the most popular selection in the fantasy game, being selected by 37.5 percent of participants. Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, who finished third at last week's Frys.com Open, was a close second at 37.1 percent.
