West Ham United have a long and illustrious list of celebrity fans and can now count an American PGA superstar golfer among them.
Celebrity West Ham supporters include a WWE superstar, six elite boxers, TV presenters, politicians, countless world famous actors and even Barack Obama.
West Ham’s long and growing list of celebrity fans
Top golf stars Francesco Molinari and Paul McGinley are big West Ham fans.
Now another can be added to the list after American golf star and six-time winner on the PGA Tour, Billy Horschel, revealed why he too is a West Ham fan.
Fresh from his WGC Match Play victory and ahead of The Masters next weekend, Horschel took a break from golf to discuss all things West Ham.
And the 34-year-old star clearly knows his stuff as he highlighted the fine job David Moyes is doing and the importance of duo Jesse Lingard and Michail Antonio.

“My stats guy, Mark, is from England and he’s also a West Ham United fan,” Horschel told Sky Sports when explaining how he came to support the Hammers.
“We’re having a hell of a season, incredible after almost being relegated last year, and to have a chance to make the Champions League is truly amazing.
“Mark Noble sent me a text. I’ve never met Mark, but he got my number from Francesco Molinari and sent me a text yesterday. That was one of the coolest things, and we were texting back and forth.
“I’m excited to see what the last part of the season has in store for West Ham. I think David Moyes has done an unbelievable job, and Jesse Lingard has been a key addition to the team.
‘Moyes should be manager of the year’
“They had a strong team already, but he’s added a little extra spark, and we all know how good Michail Antonio is.
“It’s been amazing to see what the team has achieved. I don’t know how the voting process goes, but in my opinion David Moyes should be Manager of the Year.”
Let’s hope West Ham can make the Champions League and Horschel can pull off his first major at the Masters to make it an unforgettable year for the claret and blue.
