Billy’s earliest memory as a kid was tagging along with his dad while golfing. He really doesn’t ever remember not loving the game. His dad taught him how to play and it became a passion growing up. He remembers getting his first par at the age of 11. He doesn’t remember what triggered the decision, but he decided to he wanted to attend the United States Naval Academy. In 2004 he graduated and continued serving for five years as a Surface Warfare Officer. After leaving the Navy, Billy has played golf as a professional career. He is currently the only veteran playing on the PGA tour.
