A standing ovation awaited 17-year-old Beau Hossler as he walked off the 18th green Sunday.
At 17, Beau Hossler is almost old news at the U.S. Open.
"He made double because he went for it and tried to be low (amateur)," his father, Beau Hossler Sr., said afterward. "I'm very proud of him. I'm glad that he went for it. I'm proud of him regardless of what number he puts up."
"I understand the crowds around a 14-year-old getting in. That is incredible," Beau Hossler Sr. said Wednesday. "He deserves that attention."
