In an emotionally-charged press conference on Tuesday at the Quicken Loans National, PGA Tour player Billy Hurley III announced that his father, Willard Hurley III, has been missing for nine days.
Luke Kerr-Dineen from USA Today's For the Win blog reports that Hurley, 33, said his father left home nine days ago, "with some clothes and cash, and no one has heard from him since."
Hurley said his father has no history of mental illness.
Kerr-Dineen cited this piece from Hurley's presser, where he took no questions, but said he intended to play this week:
"I'm coming to you guys for help. Last Sunday, nine days ago, he took some clothes, took some cash, and no ones heard from him since … No one know why he left, he’s been married to my mom for 30 years and now he’s gone. I just want to let him know that: Dad, we love you and we want you to come home. We have no idea where he is … I just found out so hopefully he checks for my score or my tee time and realizes it’s time to come home."
