It looked as if 17-year-old amateur Beau Hossler was going to make Saturday's round of the 2012 U.S. Open a must-watch as he found himself at the top of the leaderboard after his first nine holes on the course, but the magic didn't last and the amateur began to fade down the stretch.
Hossler shot a 35 on the first half of the course, picking up a birdie on hole No. 17, but ran into trouble as he hit the back nine of the course. Hossler birdied the first hole of the back nine, looking as though he'd continue to climb and separate himself, but followed up with a bogey on the next hole. Hossler continued to fade, picking up a double bogey followed by two straight bogeys to bring his score to 4-over.
Hossler finished up with a birdie on No. 7 followed by another bogey and ending the day at 3-over, falling five spots in the overall leaderboard.
