Watch Billy Hurley III's hysterical political 'hit piece' on Jordan Spieth ahead of PGA Tour vote
By T.J. Auclair
Billy Hurley III is running against Jordan Spieth for Chairman of the PGA Tour Player Advisory Council.
Voting ends on Tuesday with the winner taking on a three-year term.
The purpose of the PGA Tour Player Advisory Council is to advise and consult with the Board of Directors and Commissioner Jay Monahan on issues affecting the tour.
Davis Love III is the outgoing chairman. Spieth and Hurley were selected by the current directors of the tour's Policy Board for the chairman position.
Before voting ends, Hurley put out what could quite possibly be the funniest video ever compiled by a golfer as sort of a 12th-hour "hit piece" on Spieth.

Props to Hurley. That's some "Funny or Die" level production right there!
Among the highlights from the video:
- "Do we want a demanding dictator who bosses any and everyone around, especially peasant caddie Michael Greller?" followed by the famous video of Spieth telling Greller, "Go get that," in the middle of his epic closing stretch to win the 2017 Open Championship.
- "Listen to Jordan in his own words: 'I don't really listen to what other people say.'" -- creative agenda-fitting editing.
- "Just look at him taking valuables from one of our greatest allies, Great Britain." -- with a photo of Spieth holding the Claret Jug.
Just a phenomenal video all around.
Hell, even Spieth loved it:
Justin Thomas, too:
If that doesn't win Hurley the chairman's seat, I don't know what will.
