US Open Golf 2012 Leaderboard: Beau Hossler Is Best Story of the Tournament
A 17-year-old kid who just finished his jr yr of high school is tied with Tiger Woods for the lead in the US Open.— Terry Blount (@TerryBlountESPN) June 15, 2012
Hossler is living the dream, and will begin Saturday's third round tied in ninth place at three-over par. He's only four shots back of the leaders, who are Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, and David Toms. Just being able to say that you led the US Open with Tiger Woods is quite an accomplishment.
One reason why Hossler probably won't fall down the leaderboard on Saturday is because he isn't putting too much pressure on himself to perform at a high level.
He's enjoying the tournament and is just thrilled to be there. Obviously he would like to win, but the fact that he's really having fun proves how relaxed he is. This calm demeanor will help him in the third round.
After bogeying or worse on five of the first nine holes he played on Friday, Hossler showed tremendous patience throughout the day to improve on the back nine and putt well.
You can bet that the gallery crowds will be cheering for Hossler on Saturday to put himself in position to make a real run at the leader and have a chance to win the US Open.
Any time an amateur is in contention for a major championship, it adds another level of excitement to the event. Hossler's impressive play is the best story of the tournament thus far, and hopefully he continues to be a factor over the weekend.
