2012 U.S. Open: Amateur Beau Hossler Sits Near Top Of Leaderboard After Three Rounds

Perhaps, other than Tiger Woods of course, the biggest story of the U.S. Open thus far has been the play of Beau Hossler, a 17-year-old amateur from Mission Viejo, Calif. After three rounds, Hossler is still in contention, shooting an even-par 70 on Saturday to stay 3-over par, finishing, as of now, tied for seventh in the field.

"I feel like today I've even put myself in position to win the championship if I play well," he told reporters afterward.

Hossler certainly looked focus on Saturday. He bogeyed on four holes, but followed up each one with a birdie, canceling them out. And with a good showing in the final round on Sunday, he could very well become the first amateur to win the tournament in decades.
