Billy Hurley III knows pressure.
He experienced it his first day at the U.S. Naval Academy, but that was more about being nervous and unsure of what was going to happen next.
Hurley feels it even more as a professional golfer.
Hurley knows what it is like to compete against the game’s best, having qualified to play last year on the PGA Tour.
