Texas Men's Golf Star Beau Hossler Currently Weighing His Options

Texas golfer Beau Hossler is contemplating his options between stay at Texas or leaving his amateur career in the past and going pro.

Just texted with Texas junior Beau Hossler the nation's No. 1 college golfer who helped the Longhorns reach the match play final at the NCAA Golf Championships last week, and he's still weighing his future.

He told me he's in "limbo now trying to figure everything out."

He said, "Hopefully it all works out, but I won't be closing the door on my amateur career until I have everything in place and am comfortable turning pro."

Hossler has an exemption into the FedEx St. Jude Classic on the PGA Tour beginning Thursday in Memphis. But he is not playing because of the left shoulder injury that sidelined him from the NCAA match play final vs Oregon.

"Obviously, this whole (shoulder injury) situation is putting the brakes on things for the time being," he said. 

On a related note:

BIG CONGRATS to Texas sophomore golfer Scottie Scheffler for qualifying for the U.S. Open in Columbus, Ohio.

Scheffler will be in the field later this month when play begins at Oakmont. 

And congrats again to Horns' coach John Fields on being named college golf's national coach of the year on Monday by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
