IJGT alumnus, Beau Hossler of Mission Viejo, Calif., has moved to the top position in the Golfweek Collegiate Rankings after winning the prestigious Jones Cup Invitational at Ocean Forest Golf Club. Hossler has been on a tear lately, winning three of his last five events. The University of Texas junior also won the Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational in October of 2015 and the Arizona Intercollegiate in January 2016.
At the Jones Cup Invitational, which is considered one of the best amateur tournaments in the country, Hossler recorded a six-stroke victory in extremely tough conditions. He was the only player to finish the 54-hole tournament under par.
Recently, Hossler competed in the Northern Trust Open Collegiate Showcase. This was a one-of-a-kind event where 14 universities were represented by one professional alumni, one current player, and two amateurs. The current collegiate players were competing for a spot in the PGA Tour’s Northern Trust Open. Hossler came up short after shooting 72, but the University of Texas won the team competition.
