JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. (AP) FedEx Cup winner Billy Horschel's wife gave birth to their first child Tuesday night, two days after his Tour Championship victory in Atlanta.

Daughter Skylar Lillian Horschel weighed in at 6 pounds, 6 ounces and was 20 inches.

''The last few weeks have been a whirlwind with so many incredible moments, but being able to share this moment with Brittany was the biggest win of my life,'' Horschel said. ''I'm so happy I was here, surrounded by the people I care about, as we welcomed Skylar into the world. Now I can start getting her ready to win the 2032 NCAA Women's Golf Championship for the Florida Gators!''

Horschel won the season-ending Tour Championship on Sunday at East Lake to take the FedEx Cup title and $10 million bonus. He won the BMW Championship the previous week in Colorado.
