Rising Star: Billy Hurley III

Hurley ready to defend championship at Quicken Loans National

A two year roller coaster at the Quicken Loans National.

During the tournament in 2015, the father of Billy Hurley III went missing. Last summer, Hurley wont the tournament earning his first career PGA Tour victory.

A heartwarming ending with a sad beginning.

Just two week's after Billy's plea for help, his father was found dead after committing suicide.

As ABC7 sports reporter Scott Abraham shows us, by winning this tournament last year, Hurley's perspective on just about everything changed for the better.
