Finally, Beau Hossler may have not won or even finished as low amateur this week, but he may have snagged a prom date.
@ThePCreamer Beau I will go to prom with you!!!
It's got to be the hat.
@JasonDufner I think maybe Beau got that UT visor from Brandel Chamblee, rocking the old school look.. Great finish in a us open for 17yr old. Boom!
