CHICAGO (August 2, 2014) – Texas sophomore Beau Hossler of Mission Viejo, California won the 112th Western Amateur after defeating San Diego State senior Xander Schauffele in a dramatic 18-hole match Saturday at The Beverly Country Club in Chicago.

Hossler won 1-up despite being down as many as three holes through 11 during the match, which was a reprisal of a contest between the two earlier at the California State Amateur, where Schauffele prevailed.

Simply getting to the final match was no easy feat for either player given the depth of this year’s field, which included 50 of the world’s 100 best players and 21 of the top 37.
