Billy Hurley III is currently running against Jordan Spieth for Chairman of the PGA Tour Player Advisory Council and is pulling out all the stops in order to secure crucial votes.
The voting commences tomorrow and the winner will secure a three-year term in the role. It includes duties such as advising and influencing the PGA Tour's Board of Directors and Commissioner Jay Monahan.
