Hossler invited to play AT&T National

Teen Beau Hossler has been invited to play in next week's AT&T National at Congressional CC in Bethesda, Md.

Tournament director Greg McLaughlin tweeted the news on Friday.

The 17-year-old hoped to be grouped with a pair of Texas Longhorns in current player Jordan Spieth and alumnus Justin Leonard. Hossler, entering his senior year of high school in the fall, has already committed to the University of Texas for his collegiate golf. However, the PGA Tour will not group the trio, a Tour official said.

Hossler briefly held the lead alone in the second round of the U.S. Open last week before finishing in a tie for 29th place.
