Horschel's wife opens up on battle with alcoholism

Billy Horschel's emotions from winning the AT&T Byron Nelson went far beyond ending more than two years without a victory.

One day after Horschel was vague about issues off the course, his wife took to Twitter to reveal she is battling alcoholism. Brittany Horschel said last weekend marked the one-year anniversary of her sobriety.

"I write this nervously, skeptically, but also proudly because I have embraced the woman I have become over the past year," she write in a poignant post . "One year ago, I began a journey to a healthy me, mentally and physically. I will keep his simple, 'I am an alcoholic.' I say that now without shame."
