Overnight leader and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III steadied a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the Quicken Loans National for a 72-hole aggregate of 17-under 267, good for a three-shot win over Hall of Famer Vijay Singh and his first PGA TOUR title in his 104th career start.
The Naval Academy grad and 607th-ranked player in the world co-led thru 36 holes after opening his fifth appearance in 66-65, and took a two-shot lead into the finale over Hall of Famer and playing competitor Ernie Els after a third-round 67. He went out in 1-under, erasing bogey at the second with birdies on Nos. 1 and 9, but Els had climbed to within one at the break. The 34-year-old 3-putted the par-4 12th (from 28 feet) for bogey-5, but with the shot of his life, he pitched-in from 35 yards away at the 15th for birdie-3 and backed it up with a 27'3" birdie putt on the par-5 16th. Playing this season on conditional status, the Maryland resident is now fully exempt on TOUR thru the 2017-18 season and among other goodies, secures a spot in The Open Championship in three weeks at Royal Troon. He improves to 1-for-3 when the 36-hole leader/co-leader and 1-for-2 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes. Jun 26 - 6:34 PM

Overnight co-leader and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III fashioned a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to post 15-under 198, good for a two-shot lead over Hall of Famer Ernie Els and breaking the previous 54-hole tournament record of 199 (Troy Merritt/Kevin Chappell, 2015).

The 34-year-old co-led with playing competitor Jon Rahm on 11-under after opening in 66-65. It was his third 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 104th career start, first since the 2014 Greenbrier where he eventually finished T4. The Maryland resident striped 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation, posting 3.670 in SG: Tee-to-Green. Thru 54 holes, he leads in the latter with a cumulative 13.547. Hurley III circled four, three from inside of nine feet with a long of 14'8" at the par-4 14th that completed his scoring. Playing this season on conditional status, he entered the week 198th in the FedExCup standings. His career best on TOUR is T4 two times, most recently T4 at the 2014 Greenbrier and also here in 2012.

Billy Hurley III scorched Congressional Country Club with a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in round two of the Quicken Loans National, giving him a piece of the 36-hole lead at 11-under 131.

BH3 is taking full advantage of local knowledge here at Congressional CC, gaining 7.980 strokes over the field with his approach game thus far. With his irons dialed in, it's just a matter of making some putts and that's exactly what he did today after missing his fair share on day one. During round two, he splashed home four putts from outside eight feet, the longest being a 13'8" birdie roll at the par-5 ninth hole. Gamers who followed the local or course history narratives are getting rewarded handsomely through two rounds. The Annapolis, Maryland, resident entered the week ranked 198th in the FedExCup race, but we can throw any notion of form out the window this week as Hurley III clearly loves the layout at Congressional.

Teeing it up just 45 miles from home, Billy Hurley III raced out to a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of the Quicken Loans National.

The Annapolis, Maryland, resident opened on the back nine with bogeys in two of his first five holes. He missed the green in regulation on both holes and failed to get up and down. He bounced back nicely after the slow start, finishing the round at 6-under over his last 13 holes. That included a three-hole birdie train which started at the par-5 16th hole and helped DFS owners quite a bit. His longest birdie conversion came from 8'2" and he actually walked off the course losing strokes with the putter (-0.67). The United State Naval Academy product owns a pair of top 10s at Congressional Country Club and it appears the home cooking is working in his favor yet again this week.

Billy Hurley III crushed the field with rounds of 9-under-par 67-68=135 at today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier held at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Maryland. Joining him at Oakmont Country Club next week will be Chase Parker and Denny McCarthy.

With 55 playing at this location, only three spots were up for grabs. The U.S. Naval Academy, BH3, grad took care of business with 10 birdies over two rounds, swallowing just one bogey along the way. He will be making his third career U.S. Open appearance (T48/2014; MC/2015). The University of Kentucky product Chase Parker fired a 6-under-par 71-67=138 to punch his ticket. It will be his first taste of PGA TOUR action. Denny McCarthy (71-67) was the local favorite as a Takoma Park native, and he will be now be making his second straight U.S. Open appearance (T42/2015). He's currently 7-for-9 on the Web.com Tour this season with four top 30s. Notables that did not punch their ticket include: 142--Steve Wheatcroft...145--Nicholas Thompson...148--Chad Collins...151--John Mallinger.

Billy Hurley III fashioned a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a two-day total of 6-under 134, up 48 spots on the live leaderboard to T21.

Playing this season on conditional status, 65 is the 33-year-old's season best in 24 rounds and his best on TOUR since this tourney last year, where he also shot a second-round 65, 47 laps ago. Unfortunately, he sandwiched it with 73 and 72, departing after 54 holes. The U.S. Naval Academy grad kicked off his fifth appearance this week with a six-birdie effort in R1, but squared five bogeys for 69. He circled six again in R2, but limited the damage to a lone bogey on the par-4 14th. Hurley III hit 14 greens in regulation with all six of his conversions dropping from between four and 10 feet.

Billy Hurley III is back in action at this week's Valspar Championship, following three weeks of recess.

BH3 was last seen grabbing a T51 paycheck at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. It puts him at 2-for-3 on the season ahead of this week's battle with Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course. Hurley III has seen this venue twice, with a MC and T17 over the past two editions. Considering the lack of distance required around this track, this would be a good week for BH3 to get back into contention. The lack of form is the only angle holding him back right now, but he still makes for a nice sleeper selection this week in Palm Harbor, Florida.

Billy Hurley III looks to right the ship as soon as the calendar flips to 2016.

BH3 finished the 2014-15 season with a 14-for-28 record to finish 136th in the FedExCup standings. Through the fall portion of the new season, he is just 1-for-2 with nothing better than a T63. Hurley III is proving to be a coin-flip every time he tees it up, which is less than ideal for gamers moving forward.

Billy Hurley III makes his tournament debut at this week's Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Mississippi, and begins his 2015-16 campaign on conditional status.

Hurley III batted .500 last season cashing 14 times on 28 starts with a lone top 10 (T8, CIMB Classic) coming in his third event of the season. In his last 25 tourneys, he mustered a best of T17 at the Valspar Championship in early March, eventually finishing 136th in the FedExCup standings. In the Web.com Tour Finals, he entered the finale at 26th in Finals' money after opening in T35-MC-T9, but faded to 34th with a T43 at the Web.com Tour Championship.

Billy Hurley III tees it up in his second Web.com Tour Championship and enters the tournament 26th on the Finals money list thru the first three events.

In a tumultuous third season on the PGA TOUR, which included the tragic death of his father in August, Hurley III went 14-for-28 with just one top 10 (T8, CIMB Classic). He finished No. 136 in the final FedExCup standings --good for conditional status in 2015-16-- and 148th in money with $591,450. The season prior, he finished 97th in FEC points and 91st in earnings at $1,145,299. Two times a Web.com Tour grad (2011, 2013), BH3 opened his second Finals series with T35-CUT and T9 at last week's Nationwide Children's Championship, where he played his final three rounds at par-or-better (71-69-69). The 33-year-old went T8 (66-70-70-68) at the 2013 Web.com Tour Championship in his only other appearance.

Billy Hurley III arrived at the halfway point of the Wyndham Championship in 1-under-par 69-70=139 and will miss the cut.

It's going to be one or two strokes too many, so one of the potential stories of the week has gone by the boards. Of course, Hurley III was making his first start since the death of his father, who committed suicide just 10 days ago. Before the tournament, BH3 said that he wouldn't be competing if he wasn't playing for his job. Indeed, at 131st in the FedExCup points upon arrival, he's going to miss the Playoffs and will be relegated to attempt to regain fully exempt status at the Web.com Tour Finals. He'll have conditional status at worse on the PGA TOUR next season, which is something, but that would negatively impact his fantasy value. Obviously, there are more important things than that right now, but there will come a point in time for full-season gamers when a decision to invest or lay off will occur.

Billy Hurley III is included in the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

If you're wondering why, he's 129th in the FedExCup standings and 144th in earnings, so his status for next season is still undetermined. However, if you're going to circle a touring professional who can compartmentalize following the personal tragedy that he suffered this week, you'd probably point to a former full-time serviceman in the Armed Forces. But wouldn't you know it, the Naval Academy product is 0-for-2 at Sedgefield Country Club. If he remains committed, it's arguably going to be the most difficult start of his career.

Billy Hurley III's father died on Tuesday from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Loudoun Country, Virginia.

By now, you know the story of how William Hurley went missing, and then was located in a library in Texas watching his son play in the Quicken Loans National. BH3 went on to place T25 as a late entry at the Barracuda Championship. Today, the golfer released the following statement: "I want to thank the PGA Tour, the greater golf media and all those who provided their support, prayers and encouragement. "The PGA TOUR community has always taken great care of us, and my family and I are very grateful for that. As soon as I am able, I will return to golf and will provide further comment." For the record, Hurley III is 129th in the FedExCup standings and 144th on the money list.

Billy Hurley III rung up 13 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship to post a 54-hole total of 28, five points back of the leader in the clubhouse Retief Goosen.

Hurley III began the day at 15 points (T31) and 11 points back of 36-hole, co-leaders Brendan Steele and Andres Gonzales. In his fifth career round at MontrĂȘux G&CC, he camouflaged one bogey at the par-4 15th --minus-1 point in the Modified Stableford scoring format-- with seven birdies, including three consecutive to conclude his loop. The 33-year-old striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, registering 1.571 putts per GIR. He circled par breakers on Nos. 2, 3, 8 and 13 to augment his golf equivalent of a turkey at the end. His set included four conversions from outside of six feet, with a long of 13'9" at the par-4 17th. With just one top 10 on the season in 26 starts, Hurley III entered the week 131st in the FedExCup standings.

Billy Hurley III totaled 12 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship, finishing three points off the clubhouse lead.

Talk about capitalizing on a last-minute decision. Hurley III was a late entry into the field of 132 in Reno, and he's made it count early. He circled four birdies on his first six holes. That set featured three straight with a nine-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 12th sandwiched by conventional conversions ranging 13-16 feet at Nos. 11 and 13. After a drought that included two bogeys on his inward half but also a par save from 12'3" at the par-3 third, BH3 birdied his final three holes, including rolls of 10'9" at the par-3 seventh and a walk-off birdie-3 from 28'9" at 9. At last check, he ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting for the round at 4.083.
