Hurley retires from golf
Former state champion John Hurley, who played his high school golf at O’Neill, announced recently that he is leaving pro golf.
“While it is hard to move on ... I will still continue to play but will now enjoy the game more knowing my livelihood doesn’t come down to the shot at hand,” said Hurley, who now lives in Tomball, Texas.
Hurley had five pro wins, played a year on the Web.com Tour and played PGA Tour events at Quad Cities and Phoenix after being an NCAA team champion at Texas A&M and winning three Nebraska Match Play titles in four years.
