Nebraska Golfer Plays in PGA Tournament

Posted By: Sports

It's not every weekend you get to play on the PGA Tour.

O'Neill native John Hurley is playing with the big boys this weekend on the tour in the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois…

Hurley qualified for the PGA event on Monday.

The John Deere Classic is the last stop on the tour before players head across the pond for the British Open.

Hurley got off to a great start getting as low as two under, but finished with three bogeys in a row to complete his first round at one over par.

He is going to need a solid second round Friday to make the cut.

Hurley tees off at 8:30 AM.

Troy Matteson sits atop the leaderboard at -10.
