CHICAGO (August 2, 2014) – Beau Hossler burst onto the golf scene when he tied for 29th as a 17-year-old at the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club.

Now 19, the California native and Texas Longhorn on Saturday won the first major amateur championship victory of his career: the 112th Western Amateur at The Beverly Country Club on the city’s Southwest Side.

Hossler defeated Xander Schauffele, of San Diego, 2 up in the final match after rallying from 3 down through 11 holes, winning six of the last seven holes. Earlier in the day, Hossler won his semifinal match 4 and 3 against Illinois incoming freshman Nick Hardy of Northbrook, lllinois.

“Obviously, [the Western Amateur] is one of the best tournaments in the world – a major amateur event with an outstanding field run by a world class association,” Hossler said. “I’m very happy to have won. I’ve come close this summer. I’ve played some good golf but unfortunately hadn’t closed one out yet. Very pleased.”
