AT&T National 2012: Beau Hossler's U.S. Open Performance Earned Youngster Invite To Congressional

The 2012 AT&T National begins play this week on Thursday from Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland. The field was finalized on Friday evening, with event host Tiger Woods, the No. 4-ranked player in the world, and No. 10-ranked Hunter Mahan highlighting the field. There will be an infusion of youth at this year's tournament, though, that should draw the interest of fans as well. 17-year-old Beau Hossler, fresh off his strong performance at the 2012 U.S. Open, was invited to participate in the tournament, as well as two other promising youngsters.

Via Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post:

Hossler is one of several prominent, precocious players who will try to handle Congressional, which hosts the AT&T National for the first time since 2009. (The tournament moved to suburban Philadelphia for two years so Congressional could prepare for and host the 2011 U.S. Open.) Jordan Spieth, a freshman at the University of Texas - where Hossler is committed to play after his high school graduation in 2013 - will be there just two weeks after beating Hossler to take low amateur honors at the Open. Patrick Cantlay, a 20-year-old who turned pro last week following his sophomore year at UCLA, was also invited.

The complete field can be found at the AT&T National page on PGATour.com.
