On the 2011 Nationwide Tour, Hurley's best finish was second place at the Chiquita Classic while having four top-10 finishes. He entered the 2011 Nationwide Tour Championship in the 25th money list position and his T18 position earned him his PGA Tour card.
Hurley played 27 events on the 2012 PGA Tour where his best finish was a tie for fourth at the AT&T National. He finished 150th in the FedEx Cup, earning a $32,000 bonus. However, Hurley finished 151st on the money list and therefore he missed conditional status on the 2013 PGA Tour by $165.
At 2012 Q School, Hurley finished tied for 73rd place. Since at Q School the top 25 players and ties earn PGA Tour cards and the next 50 players earn Web.com Tour cards, Hurley earned a Web.com Tour card for the 2013 Web.com Tour season. He made 15 cuts in 24 events on the Web.com Tour in 2013 with his best finish a playoff loss at the United Leasing Championship. He played in the Web.com Tour Finals and finished 26th to earn his PGA Tour card for 2014.
