Billy Hurley III, former Naval Academy grad, won his first PGA Tour title at the Congressional Country Club not far from his home in Annapolis.
“Couldn’t be a better tournament to win from all the facets of it,” Hurley said with the trophy in front of him. “From just being close to home, being close to the Academy, close to where I grew up. It’s just perfect.”
That chip in on the 15th hole separated Hurley from the herd and ran off with the win. Tiger Woods was there to support his tournament at Congressional and couldn’t help but get beside Hurley in the winners circle.
“To have a serviceman actually win the event, it doesn’t get any better than that,” Woods said.
Congrats Billy Hurley III, you deserve it!
