Hurley III Levies Hilarious Takedown Ad at Spieth


Attack ads are no longer only for politics; they’ve made their way to the PGA Tour.


The voting for the Player Advisory Council Chairman ends today, Feb. 13 and Billy Hurley III launched one final push to steal some votes away from his opponent, Jordan Spieth.

The hilarious faux attack ad picks on Spieth’s penchant for yelling at his ball, bossing around his “peasant caddie” Michael Greller and stealing valuables (the Claret Jug) from trusted allies in the British Isles. All in all, the whole thing is amazing.’s Kevin Casey had more.

We guarantee you’ve never seen this side of Jordan Spieth.

The 24-year-old is in the running for chairman of the PGA Tour’s Player Advisory Council. His opponent? Billy Hurley III.

Both golfers are among the 16 members of the 2018 PAC, which consults with the PGA Tour Policy Board and commissioner Jay Monahan on a variety of issues on Tour.

But there remains that voting (among the PGA Tour membership) for the chairman spot. Whoever wins will also replace Davis Love III as a Player Director on the Policy Board starting in 2019 (and will serve a three-year term).


The chairman election ends Feb. 13, so Hurley took the chance Monday to bolster his candidacy last-minute.

And he did so in tremendous fashion, as Hurley ran a hilarious parody of a political attack ad against Spieth.
