Beau Hossler from top to bottom in few years

Beau Hossler after entering the top 100 of the World Ranking, is now over the 300th position.

The American player in his years as an amateur has been successful in 14 competitions including five in his last year, 2016. At just 17 years old Beau Hossler managed to qualify for the second consecutive year to the U.S. Open of 2012 where he managed to pass the cut and reach him in 28th position. It was since 1945 that such a young player did not pass the cut to the U.S. Open. The young American turned pro in 2016, with one year left in college.

Beau Hossler, biography

A former pro he secured his Web.com Tour card by finishing second in the Air Capital Classic tournament. In his first year he immediately managed to finish in the ranking of the Web.Com Tour in 23rd position, securing him the card for the PGA Tour. In 2018 he won two second places, his best performance to date. The first second place came at the Houston Open where he lost to Ian Poulter in the playoff while the other second place was obtained in the Travelers Championship. These two performances allowed him to reach the 64th position in the World Ranking, his best position ever. Unfortunately, in the last period he has not maintained the same consistency of results as in the early years as a professional and, unfortunately, has slipped into the World Ranking. Many missed cuts and no significant performance between 2020 and 2021 caused him to sink to 321st position.

Meanwhille, Darren Fichardt reached a notable milestone on his home continent as the South African made his 400th European Tour appearance at the Magical Kenya Open presented by Johnnie Walker, on the back of a runner-up finish at last week’s Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. The 45-year-old, playing his first event of 2021 in Doha last week, led the field heading into the final round but missed out as Frenchman Antoine Rozner holed a monster putt on the final hole to claim the title. Fichardt was happy to be back in the mix again and the five-time European Tour winner is looking forward to enjoying his milestone appearance this week in his first ever visit to Kenya.
