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. Dec 1 - 8:59 AM

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.
Oct 30 - 11:59 AM

Billy Hurley III aced the par-3 15th hole in his second round of the Frys.com 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.

Billy Hurley III carded a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

At 98th in the FedExCup standings, Hurley III needs a home run to remain alive in the Playoffs. Even a top 10 doesn't guarantee survival. As a result, he's expected to play aggressively and give every putt a hearty whack. The strategy paid off today in the form of six birdies, four of which from outside 10 feet. He opened birdie-birdie with respective conversions from 10'10" and 21'7" at the first and second holes. After three bogeys in a four-hole stretch ending at No. 6, BH3 played the remaining 12 in bogey-free 4-under. He hit 13 greens in regulation on the round, concluding with a strokes gained-putting measurement of 2.574, good for 10th-highest in the field. Hurley III is five strokes behind overnight leader Ryan Palmer.

Billy Hurley III barely found his way into the field at the Deutsche Bank Championship this week at 98th in the FedExCup standings.

This is his first look at TPC Boston, and Hurley III needs to come up with a big result if he is to crack the top 70 and advance to the third leg of the Playoffs next week. Course history buffs are out of luck, since this is his first tee time at this event. Since his T4 at The Greenbrier Classic, he's missed three cuts and tied for 64th at The Open Championship.

Billy Hurley III finished off his first Open Championship with a 1-under-par 37-34=71 to end the tournament at 4-over 292.

This was BH3's first action in the season's third major, so just logging the experience of playing 72 holes was both an accomplishment and valuable. Sunday's stroll around Royal Liverpool featured five birdies, all on his last 10 holes, and four bogeys. Hurley III continues to prove that he is a valuable commodity for gamers.
Jul 20 - 7:16 AM

Billy Hurley III stumbled to a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to tie for fourth at 9-under 271.

BH3 held a two-stroke lead entering the round, and began things with a 16'5" birdie at the opening hole. Just when he looked like he might run away and hide at The Old White TPC, he swallowed four bogeys over the next five holes and never really recovered. A 27'2" birdie at the par-4 seventh and a 16'1" chip in at the par-4 13th were fun, but ultimately offset by bogeys at 10 and 15. He moves from 80th to 69th in the FedExCup standings with this finish.
Jul 6 - 6:00 PM

Billy Hurley III forged ahead with a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and leads Angel Cabrera by two strokes with 18 to play.

The Naval Academy graduate tacked on five birdies to just two bogeys at The Old White TPC, improving to 12-under 198. His final birdie was the highlight, falling from 16'2" on the par-4 13th. Accuracy was a big part of his success on Saturday, splitting 12 of 14 fairways and landing 14 GIR. Hurley III has been knocking on the door of something special, having made his last six cuts climaxing with his T8 last week at Congressional, and he will try and claim his first PGA TOUR victory in Sunday's final round.
Jul 5 - 5:47 PM

With a bogey-free, 33-30=63 in his second round of The Greenbrier Classic, Billy Hurley III posted 9-under 131, good for outright possession of the very early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Of course the former Midshipman would card his career low on the Fourth of July. Going out in the first threesome off the 10th tee, Hurley III missed six greens in regulation, but that didn't rattle the 32-year-old. His most impressive par save measured 15'10" at the par-5 12th hole where he wiped his approach and struggled escaping from the junk short and right of the green. Elsewhere, he put on a clinic, burying seven birdies, two of which ranging 15-17 feet. The highlight came in the form of a 10-yard hole-out from just off the green at the par-4 fourth.
Jul 4 - 11:49 AM

Billy Hurley III battled for an even-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to end the week at 1-under 283.

The Naval Academy product birdied three of his first holes, with a bogey mixed in, to make an early run up the leaderboard at Congressional CC. His back nine would prove costly, surrounding two additional birdies with four bogeys. A pair of his birdie putts dropped from over 30 feet. He was tied for 11th when he posted, but there is a very realistic chance that he will depart with a top-10 finish.
Jun 29 - 5:10 PM

Billy Hurley III posted a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Quicken Loans National.

The last time BH3 played the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club, he recorded a career-best T4 in 2012. Of course, it's a bit of a home game for the Naval Academy product and Annapolis, Maryland, resident, but execution is still needed to fulfill the expectation. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens today, picking off four birdies to help offset two bogeys. His longest conversion disappeared for birdie from 16'11" at the par-4 third hole, but Hurley III also poured in a par save from 13'5" at the par-3 seventh. He signed his card sitting just three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Jun 26 - 2:22 PM

Billy Hurley III will fight for his first U.S. Open title later this week at Pinehurst No. 2.

The Naval Academy graduate qualified for the season's second major at the Rockville, Maryland sectional, not far from where he went to college in Annapolis. At 12th on the PGA TOUR in driving accuracy and 38th in GIR, he has the kind of game that could show well in a U.S. Open. Perhaps the biggest question will be his length, ranking 167th on TOUR, as he looks to tackle the 7,562 yard par-70 layout.
