Arrived as a tournament winner on The European Tour in 2010, coming from five strokes back to win by one and take his maiden title at the BMW International Open. Bradley Dredge had led every round to that point but a final round 67 saw Horsey first pass the winner’s post and claim a one stroke victory. Had previously enjoyed a successful amateur career, but exceeded even his own expectations in his first full season on the Challenge Tour in 2008 by claiming two titles and graduating to The European Tour as the Number One. His breakthrough came at the Telenet Trophy, where he birdied three of the last four holes to take victory by one shot. Buoyed by the win, he effectively sealed his place on The 2009 European Tour International Schedule with his second victory of the season two weeks later, at the AGF-Allianz EurOpen de Lyon. A final day 65 gave Horsey the title by one shot from his compatriot Marcus Higley, and propelled him to the top of the Rankings – which is where he ended the season. His rookie season on The European Tour saw him comfortably keep his card, missing only six cuts out of 26 tournaments to finish 76th in The Race to Dubai.
