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 followed an epic junior year in which he captured five collegiate victories and the prestigious Jones Cup Invitational.

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

Having missed the qualifying window for the 2017 Web.com Tour while rehabbing a torn labrum suffered in the NCAA Championships, Beau was faced with the prospect of having no status on a major tour for the season.

After making his professional debut at the Farmers Insurance Open on a sponsors’ exemption, Beau claimed an Adams Pro Tour victory in just his third professional start.

His strong play continued into the Spring and Summer where he earned 11 Web.com Tour regular season starts – first through Monday qualifying and subsequently by registering 2nd place finishes at the LECOM Health Challenge and the Air Capital Classic. Despite his abbreviated schedule, Beau still earned his PGA Tour card for the Fall of 2017.

2017/2018 will mark Beau’s rookie season on the PGA Tour. Beau has made an immediate splash on Tour with top-10 finishes at the Sanderson Farms Championship and the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open his 2nd and 3rd starts as a full-time Tour member
