BIRMINGHAM, AL -- University of Texas sophomore Beau Hossler won one noted college tournament and finished second in two others during March to capture the National Amateur of the Month award. The March-October award sponsored by the Southern Golf Association kicks off it's 13th year saluting top performances by the nation's amateurs.

Hossler opened the month by winning the John Hayt Collegiate at Ponte Vedra Beach (FL) CC, beating the strongest college field assembled during March. He shot 4-under 212 to win by four strokes and led his Texas Longhorns to the team title. Later in the month, he was second at both the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters in Vegas and the Linger Longer Invitational at Reynolds Plantation (Ga.) Great Waters Course.

He led Texas to team titles in all three events.

The monthly winner is selected by a blue-ribbon national committee of golf officials, coaches and journalists. Others receiving votes from the panel for winning March tournaments were Alabama's Robbie Shelton, Georgia's Lee McCoy, and 47-year-old mid- am Todd White.


In addition to the monthly award, the SGA supports amateur golf by running three notable annual tournaments, headed by the storied Southern Amateur, set to be played this year at Mississippi's Old Waverly Club in July. Hossler was the 54-hole leader in the Southern Am last summer at the Honors Course near Chattanooga, but dropped five shots over the first three holes the last day and never regained the lead.
