BETHESDA, Md. — Billy Hurley III held the club in his left hand and fist pumped with his right. Not far from his Annapolis home and the Naval Academy he graduated from 12 years ago, he became a champion.

Hurley shot a 2-under 69 on Sunday to win his hometown Quicken Loans National at Congressional for his first PGA Tour victory. He finished at 17 under in Tiger Woods’ annual tournament, three strokes ahead of three-time major champion Vijay Singh.

To beat Singh, Ernie Els and 21-year-old Jon Rahm, Hurley showed the poise he developed at the Naval Academy and during his five years of service. Mental toughness and focus he said help with adversity on the course, and that showed through in his 104th PGA Tour start.

With the 53-year-old Singh closing on him, Hurley was at his best. He holed out from 35 yards on the fairway for birdie on the 15th, a shot Woods himself called “impressive, really impressive.”

As if that wasn’t enough, Hurley made a 27-foot putt on the 16th to seal the tournament and wrap up the $1,242,000 first-place prize and a spot in the British Open. He had never finished higher than a tie for fourth in a PGA Tour event.

On Saturday the 34-year-old said there’s no better tournament to earn his first win, based on its proximity to home and its connections to the military.

“I’m just thrilled to have gotten it done today,” Hurley said.

Singh closed with a 65. Rahm, the former Arizona State star from Spain, wrapped up his pro debut with a 70 to tie for third with Bill Haas (68) at 13 under. .

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Kirk Triplett rallied to win the inaugural American Family Insurance Championship in Madison, Wisconsin, for his fifth PGA Tour Champions title, making four straight birdies in front of another large crowd at University Ridge.

The 54-year-old Triplett shot a 7-under 65 to finish at 17-under 199, two strokes ahead of Bart Bryant and Mike Goodes.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Henrik Stenson overcame four bogeys in the final round to earn his 10th European Tour title with a three-shot victory at the BMW International Open in Pulheim, Germany.

Stenson ended with 17 under to take his second title at the event after 2006, having finished as runner-up for the past two seasons. All the leaders had to play 36 holes on Sunday after rain washed out play the day before.

LPGA: Top-ranked Lydia Ko won the NW Arkansas Championship in Rogers, Arkansas, for her third LPGA Tour victory of the year, closing with a 3-under 68 for a tournament-record 17-under total and a three-stroke victory.
