Hulbert was born in Elmira, New York. He grew up in Horseheads, New York, and was a childhood friend and high school golf rival of fellow PGA Tour player Joey Sindelar. Hulbert attended East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee; he earned All-American honors as a member of the golf team in 1979 and 1980. He turned pro in 1981 and joined the PGA Tour in 1985.
Hulbert won three times on the PGA Tour; his last two wins came in playoffs. His first win came at the Federal Express St. Jude Classic in 1986 by one stroke over Joey Sindelar. His second victory was at the 1989 B.C. Open in a playoff over Bob Estes. In his third win at the 1991 Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic, he defeated Kenny Knox on the first hole in a playoff. Hulbert's best finishes in major championships were a T-6 at the 1992 U.S. Open, and a T-7 at the 1986 PGA Championship. He has had more than 45 top-10 finishes in his PGA Tour career including more than a half-dozen 2nd or 3rd-place finishes.
Hulbert caddied for Davis Love III at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and the Northern Trust Open in the early part of 2008 prior to starting play on the Champions Tour. He began play on the Champions Tour in April 2008. He finished T8 in his debut event, the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am, and matched it a year later at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open.
In 2002, Hulbert was inducted into the East Tennessee State University Athletic Hall of Fame. Hulbert has had more than 4.7 million dollars in career earnings. He lives in Orlando, Florida with his wife and two sons. He has a brother named John, a club professional who once qualified for the U.S. Open.
