“I am and always have been a fiery competitor,” the 34-year-old explained on his Twitter account.

“This leads to some instances where my behavior is not what I want to show, especially as a role model for the younger generation,” Horschel said in a statement on social media.
“I apologize to Augusta National, members of the club and customers for any behavior that may have gone beyond the line.
‘I always try to improve and do better; as a golfer, husband, father or as a person. Thanks @TheMasters for an unforgettable week! ‘
