BEAU HOSSLER

BIOGRAPHY

Height – 6 ft 1”
Date of birth – 16th March 1995
Turned pro – 2016
Family – Single
Residence – Mission Viejo, California

Hossler gained global notoriety at the 2012 United States Open after taking the lead late in the second round as a precocious teenager, and has now become one of the most decorated and highly-regarded amateurs in recent memory. Ranked #1 in Golfweek Magazine’s Men’s Amateur Rankings in mid 2016 and a consensus First Team All-American at the University of Texas, his decision to turn professional follows an epic junior year in which he captured five collegiate victories and the prestigious Jones Cup Invitational.

At only 21-years-of-age, Hossler has already competed in six United States Amateur Championships and three United States Opens, a remarkable feat in itself.

Beau will seek sponsor exemptions from 2017 PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour events, in pursuit of his exempt playing privileges. He will play at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in January, which will be his first PGA Tour event as a professional.

Beau claimed his maiden win at a 36 hole event on the Adams Pro tour by three strokes in Spring, Texas. It was only his third start since turning professional in July. Hossler posted rounds of 67-66 on the Cypress Course at Cypresswood Golf Club and earned $5,200.
