On Tuesday before the start of the Quicken Loans National tournament, PGA Tour player Billy Hurley III announced that his father, Willard Hurley Jr., is missing.
According to Hurley, Willard left home nine days ago with some clothes and cash, and no one has heard from him since. His mother has filed a police report with local authorities in Leesburg, Virginia, where they live.
“Last Sunday, nine days ago, my dad took some clothes, he took some cash, he got in his truck and drove away and no one has heard from him since. So he’s been gone about nine days, I guess. No one really knows why. It’s complete speculation as to why he left. He’s been married to my mom for 30-plus years. You know, they still live in the house that I grew up in in Leesburg and I’m just hoping that there’s a story that maybe he goes to pgatour.com to check my tee time or check my score and sees this and understands that dad, we love you and we want you to come home.”
