Billy Hurley III is headed back to the U.S. Open after sharing medalist honors at today's section qualifier at Woodmont Country Club's North Course in Rockville, Maryland.

Hurley III opened with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 66 that featured an eagle-2 and four birdies. He offset three bogeys with as many birdies in his second loop. Denny McCarthy, an outgoing senior at the University of Virginia, also posted 6-under 138, with an eagle-3, nine birdies, three bogeys and a double. McCarthy is currently 17th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. The final of the three berths up for grabs went to Tim O'Neal. He and Joshua Persons finished regulation in 2-under 142, but O'Neal birdied the third playoff hole to qualify. Notables that failed at this site include: 143--Steve Wheatcroft; Chad Collins ... 144--Jeff Gove ... 146--Michael Thompson ... 157--Mark Hubbard.

Billy Hurley III painted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, finishing two swings adrift of the clubhouse lead.

It's been a long time since we've heard from the 32-year-old, so this is extremely encouraging. He piped nine (of 14) fairways and totaled 14 greens in regulation en route to five birdies. All 18 of his conversions were from inside 10 feet. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 4.183. This is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 66 at par-70 Waialae Country Club almost four months ago.

Billy Hurley III turns his attention to the Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Hurley III is 6-for-16 on the PGA TOUR season with three top 25s, the last coming in the T17 variety at the Valspar Championship in March. The 32-year-old limps into the Wells Fargo missing six of his last eight cuts, including three straight. At 130th in the FedExCup standings, the Naval Academy grad is in dire need of FedExCup points but will be hard-pressed to make a deposit at Quail Hollow where he's yet to break par, albeit in just four-career rounds.
May 12 - 6:19 PM

Billy Hurley III makes his second visit to the RBC Heritage and enters the week 110th in the FedExCup rankings.

Hurley III was T4 (3-under-par) after 54 holes in his HHI debut last year but faded to a 73-72 over the weekend to finish T31. He's 6-for-14 on the season with three top 25s but only one of those has come in his last 10 starts (T17, Valspar). Remarkably, he's 14th on TOUR in proximity to hole despite ranking 204th in driving distance at 261.1 yards.
Apr 15 - 6:31 PM

Billy Hurley III battled for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Valspar Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 3-under 210.

BH3 spread five birdies and four bogeys across Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course, with four of those birdies falling from between nine and 15 feet. He landed an impressive 13 GIR on a course that was playing difficult all day. He is on the top-10 bubble as play winds down on Saturday, so securing a top-10 finish will certainly be a goal for him on Sunday.
Mar 14 - 4:18 PM

Billy Hurley III carded a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Luke Donald's lookalike has been quiet of late. He's just 2-for-6 in 2015 with no better than a T45 at Pebble Beach four weeks ago. That's also the last time that he signed for a score below par (final-round 70). Today at Copperhead, he traded four birdies with two bogeys. Hurley III's highlights occurred at the par-4 seventh and par-3 13th holes where he circled birdies measuring 37'10" and 25'5", respectively.
Mar 12 - 1:14 PM

Billy Hurley III tied for 45th place last week and now turns his attention to the Northern Trust Open.

BH3 has posted two rounds in red numbers in six career tries at Riviera Country Club. They both occurred last year on his way to a T52 finish. The United States Naval Academy product is 4-for-8 on the season but hasn't finished inside the top 40 since the calendar struck 2015. Games can likely take a pass this week and not lose any sleep over it.
Feb 18 - 8:12 PM

Billy Hurley III missed the cut in his 2014 Humana Challenge debut but returns this week for a shot at revenge.

BH3 arrives this week ranked 78th in the FedExCup standings thanks to a pair of early-season top 25s. He prefers accuracy over distance so these short courses should be right up his alley. Gamers won't want to lead with Hurley III this week but he certainly makes for a nice DFS sleeper.
Jan 21 - 9:45 AM

Billy Hurley III got off to a quick start during the Fall Series, posting two top 25s on the way to his current position of 66th in the FedExCup standings.

BH3 earned his first trip to the Playoffs last season, thanks to a career year sparked by 17 cuts made, including four top 10s. His 2014-15 season got off to an 0-for-2 start before turning in a T8 at the CIMB Classic and following it up with a T23 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Fairways and greens is the mantra held by Hurley III, which makes short, tight courses the ideal fit to target him.

Billy Hurley III settled for a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in his final round of the CIMB Classic.

His only birdie occurred on his last hole, the par-5 18th at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. Hurley III held the outright lead at the midpoint with a pair of 5-under 67s, but he closed 71-73. So, his first victory on the PGA TOUR will have to wait. The good news is that at 10-under 278, he finished with a share of eighth place, thus ending his drought without a top-55 finish at seven consecutive starts.

Overnight leader Billy Hurley III posted a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in his third round of the CIMB Classic.

Tacked onto his pairs of 67s, he's 11-under 205 through 54 holes, just one swing back of the co-leaders. Hurley III buried three birdies today, but also succumbed to two bogeys. With many of the field's heavyweights rising into contention on Saturday, he faces a terrific challenge to retain position much less chase his first victory on the PGA TOUR.

Billy Hurley III tossed up another 5-under-par 67 in his second round of the CIMB Classic to post 10-under 134 at the midpoint, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Hurley III didn't go bogey-free like Thursday, but he picked off seven birdies to help hide a double bogey-6 at the second hole today. Going off in the first threesome off the 10th tee, he poured in six of his par breakers on his outward side en route to 6-under 30. Stats aren't kept for this tournament, but success is evident anywhere where a golfer has just one blemish through two rounds.

Billy Hurley III crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the CIMB Classic, finishing two strokes off the overnight lead.

Play resumed in Kuala Lumpur at 3:30 p.m. local time. The delay for inclement weather lasted over two hours, but it didn't affect Hurley III. While tee-to-cup statistics are not maintained for this tournament, all that really matters is that he signed a clean scorecard with five birdies, including a pair on the par 5s. He's seeking to become the third consecutive first-time winner on the PGA TOUR.

Billy Hurley III aced the par-3 15th hole in his second round of the Open, but will miss the cut on the number.

And he went bogey-free, 2-under 70 in the opening round! His fate was ultimately sealed with a bogey-5 at the 17th hole today, but Hurley III squared three bogeys and a double earlier in the day. He also birdied Nos. 10 and 12 before the highlight show at 15. Standing 181 yards from the hole, BH3 airmailed his tee ball into the cup on the fly. It's the first hole-in-one of the 2014-15 season. Y.E. Yang recorded the first 1 of 2013-14 in this tournament at CordeValle, also in the second round. The second ace of the season didn't come around until Keegan Bradley joined the club in the second round of the Humana Challenge.
