Florida standout sophomore golfer Sam Horsfield is leaving school to pursue a career in professional golf. He announced his decision to forgo his final two years of eligibility on Twitter on Monday.

In his two years with the Gators, Horsfield, who is from Davenport, won four tournaments and had the lowest stroke average on the team both seasons.

He had a huge freshman season in which he won three tournaments and set the school season record for stroke average (70.5). He was the SEC freshman of the year and a first-team Ping All-American.

He won one tournament this past season and finished 13th in the recent SEC Tournament.
