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. Oct 10 - 9:12 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 9:26 PM

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.
Jun 10 - 9:04 AM

Billy Hurley III enters the HP Byron Nelson Championship ranked 108th in the FedExCup standings.

BH3 has failed to crack par or better in four rounds at TPC Four Seasons. This lack of success in Texas is nothing new. Four of his last five trips to Texas have yielded finishes of 112th or worse. Gamers should save Hurley III for tracks that put a premium on driving accuracy.
May 13 - 11:48 AM

Billy Hurley III twirled a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 3-under 139, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit only 10 greens in regulation and circled two birdies, but today's scoring average is likely going to showcase this as one of the rounds of the day. Toss in the fact that this is his first appearance at Harbour Town and he entered on an 0-for-3 skid. Hurley III opened par-birdie-par-birdie, the last conversion measuring 14'6" at the par-3 fourth hole.
Apr 18 - 2:19 PM

Billy Hurley III will make his debut at Harbour Town Golf Links at this week's RBC Heritage.

BH3 should really thrive on a course setup like Harbour Town. Hurley ranks 24th in driving accuracy, so avoiding the tree-lined fairways and bunkers should not be an issue. Also ranking 27th in scrambling is fantastic, as missing greens at Harbour Town is inevitable. Salary-cap gamers should take a hard look at Hurley this week.
Apr 15 - 11:11 AM

Billy Hurley III spun a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of The Honda Classic, improving to 7-under 203 and claiming the clubhouse lead at 7-under 273.

BH3 picked up two birdies, both on the pair of par 5s at PGA National, and gave back just one bogey on what was a difficult day of scoring. While he'll need some help to tie or beat his career-best T4 at AT&T National in 2012, it appears highly likely he'll hang on for a top-five finish. The putter was the key, as he ranked fourth in strokes gained at the time of his posting.
Mar 2 - 5:06 PM

Billy Hurley III navigated PGA National to the tune of a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in the third round of The Honda Classic and enters the final round inside the top 10 at 6-under 204.

Hurley III was on fire early, circling five birdies to just one bogey on his outward nine. Things calmed considerably down the stretch, as he followed a bogey at the par-4 10th with eight pars. He made two of his three cuts in 2014, and entered this week fresh off a T52 at the Northern Trust Open. He will try and secure his second top-10 finish of 2013-14 in the final round.
