Won his second title on The European Tour at the 2011 Trophée Hassan II in Morocco, edging out Rhys Davies and Jaco Van Zyl in a play-off after nearly losing in regulation play. The Englishman double-bogeyed the 72nd hole, giving Davies a short putt to win, but the Welshman missed and Horsey won at the second extra hole with a birdie three. Won his maiden European Tour title the previous season, coming from five strokes back to win by one at the BMW International Open. Bradley Dredge had led after every round to that point but a final round 67 edged Horsey ahead for his maiden European Tour title. Was also runner-up at the BMW Italian Open en route to finishing 32nd in The Race to Dubai. 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 win by one shot. Buoyed by the victory, he effectively sealed his place on The 2009 European Tour International Schedule with his second triumph 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, where he ended the season. Comfortably kept his card in his rookie season on The European Tour, missing only six cuts out of 27 tournaments.
