PGA Tour: Quicken Loans National – Billy Hurley III

Powered by National Club Golfer

Converting a number of key putts down the closing stretch gave Billy Hurley III his first PGA Tour title at Congressional.

Leading after 54 holes, only the second time in his career he has faced that pressure, the Maryland native got off to a great start with the birdie on the 1st.

But, after his round threatened to unravel around the turn, he drained a 10-footer for par on the 13th, chipped in from 35 yards on the 15th and birdied the next as he beat Vijay Singh by 3 shots.

“I think this has been the culmination of about the last probably six months every day working on my game really,” Hurley said. “I’ve worked really hard this winter. We built a new house and put about 600 square feet of a golf room and a gym in the basement. So over the winter I really worked hard on my swing hitting into the screen there.”
