Horschel shares the lead with fellow American and play-offs leader Chris Kirk at four under after Thursday's opening round of the season-ending event.

Despite Horschel and his wife expecting their first child, the 27-year-old will remain in Atlanta with the possibility of winning the $10million prize.

He said there were no nerves " neither about the child or the huge cheque on the line should he win the FedEx Cup.

"I'm not too nervous about having a kid. My wife and I are very excited. And I'm not nervous," Horschel said.

"I'm more anxious. I wouldn't say I ever get really nervous."

Horschel said the huge prize at the end was all that was keeping him from potentially missing the birth of his child, with a win enough to see him claim the cheque.

"I'm staying here - $10million is a lot of money and it can be put to a lot of good use. And so we've talked about that," he said.

"I'm going to stay put on the golf course. I'll find out after the round. I won't find out on the course, because my focus may be taken away from the task at hand.

"But after the round's over with, I will be flying home, spend a few hours and then flying back later that day or the next morning before the round of golf."
