Billy Hurley III calls Jordan Spieth ‘disgusting’ and a ‘thief’ in satirical attack ad that is absolute gold

By Stephen Hennessey
Many golf fans have probably never heard of the PGA Tour Player Advisory Council—the panel of tour players that represent their fellow pros and assist the PGA Tour Policy Board in making decisions with commissioner Jay Monahan. Thanks to this brilliant ad produced by Billy Hurley III, who is running against Jordan Spieth for the chairman of the PAC, everyone is now aware. And likely, all-in on Hurley’s candidacy.

Obviously, Spieth is one of the most popular players in the game—not just with fans but his fellow players. So Hurley has a tough fight ahead with the 24-year-old “Golden Child” in Tuesday’s election. Conversely, Hurley might’ve swayed some votes with this hilarious video he shared on social media on Monday.

Fabulous work by Hurley, the winner of the 2016 Quicken Loans Invitational, who served five years in the U.S. Navy after graduating from the Naval Academy. You know even Spieth cracked up after watching this.

The rest of the 2018 PGA Tour Player Advisory Council, which was named in January, includes Justin Thomas, Steve Stricker, Paul Casey, Roberto Castro, Ben Crane, Andres Gonzales, James Hahn, J.J. Henry, Matt Kuchar, Geoff Ogilvy, Rod Pampling, Harold Varner III, Johnson Wagner and Tim Wilkinson.

Never mind that my actual calendar says it’s only February.
