6 Great Photos Capturing Hurley III’s First PGA Tour Win

Billy Hurley III’s win at the Quicken Loans National was quite unexpected, yet unbelievably thrilling.

The golfer, who was ranked No. 609 in the world , and playing on one of the two sponsor exemptions, in front of his hometown, with a personal story right out of a Disney movie, made the most of it and captured his first PGA Tour victory, and all kinds of benefits.

One of those bennies was 500 FedEx Cup points, which is about 6 TIMES as many as he had all year (80).

With that, here are 6 great photos from Getty, which beautifully captures the former Naval Officer’s incredible performance.
