Beau Hossler gained global notoriety at the 2012 U. S. Open after taking the lead late in the second round as a precocious teenager and became one of the most decorated and highly-regarded amateurs in recent memory. During his junior year at the University of Texas, Hossler captured five collegiate victories and the prestigious Jones Cup Invitational. After that epic junior year and being ranked #1 in Golfweek Magazine’s Men’s Amateur Rankings in mid-2016 and a consensus 1st Team All-American, Hossler made the decision to turn professional.
At only 21-years-of-age, Hossler had already competed in six U. S. Amateur Championships and three U. S. Opens, a remarkable feat.
Hossler suffered a torn labrum at the NCAA Championships and therefore missed the window to qualify for the 2017 Web.com Tour. Hossler was faced with the prospect of having no status on a major tour for the season.
Hossler claimed an Adams Pro Tour victory in just his third start as a professional, and then made his PGA TOUR professional debut at the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open.
His strong play continued into the summer where he earned 11 Web.com Tour regular season starts – first through Monday qualifying and subsequently by recording 2nd place finishes at the LECOM Health Challenge and the Air Capital Classic. Despite his abbreviated schedule, Hossler still earned his PGA TOUR card starting in the Fall of 2017.
2017/2018 marked Hossler’s rookie season on the PGA TOUR. Hossler 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. After an impressive weekend at the Houston Open, Hossler lost in a playoff to Ian Poulter to earn solo second, his highest finish of his rookie season. He ended the season with 5 Top-10s and two 2nd place finishes, placing him 46th on the FedEx Cup list and securing his card for the next season.
In the 2015 NCAA Championship semi-final, Beau tore his labrum (shoulder) on the 15th but still went on to win his match 2&1 to send Texas through to the finals.
