    While it would be extremely premature to call University of Texas golfer Beau Hossler the next Jordan Spieth, Hossler continues to move his game forward while receiving national attention.

    In June, Hossler finished playing in his 3rd US Open as an amateur – all before the age of 21. That feat is incredible in itself. Equally impressive is the company he joined by doing so: Jack Nicklaus, Bobby Jones, Ben Crenshaw and Bobby Clampett.

    Earlier this month, Hossler was selected to the 2015 Walker Cup team by the USGA. He will join nine teammates to compete against England and Ireland at Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club in Lancashire, England.

    The last Texan to be selected to the Walker Cup team? Jordan Spieth in 2011.

    Beau told HornSports he leaves for the Walker Cup on Thursday and that he’s excited to be a part of the competition.

    And while Jordan Spieth is winning on the tour, according to Hossler his success carries over to the morale of UT’s golf team:

    “He's setting a great standard for us to follow, coming up in these next few years.”
