Spieth teeing/d off at 9:55 paired w/ Angel Cabrera
Hossler at 14:05 w/ Raphael Jacquelin
Not sure what time zone those are.
The Official Site of the U.S. Open 2012. This major golf championship will be played at The Olympic Club, San Francisco, CA
Those were PDT tee times.
Out of the first 6 pairings, Spieth is one of only four golfers to finish the first 8 holes under par.

Spieth currently with low round of the day at -2 through 12 holes.
Spieth finished -1 for the day, one of just 11 to be under par at this point. Hossler birdied the 12th to go back to even, and is now tied for 6th place.
Pretty remarkable showing so far by the two amateurs.
For Hossler to birdie the 12th after that 3 putt on the 11th was incredible. This is really a lot of fun to watch.
Will they both be at UT next year?
I play golf but don't watch it on tv much. I realize it's the US Open but what happens if an amateur wins it, such as a college player like Spieth? Are they allowed to keep the money & still play collegiately?
He's only a junior in high school I doubt spieth is around when hossler shows up, and no his parents might be able to claim it but I don't think he can receive money for tourney wins

I am probably wrong, but I thought the earnings were put into a fund he could get when he goes pro.
Coach Fields is there in burnt orange. Just gave Beau the hookem after his round.
No, they'll never see that money.
Thanks, but what happens to the prize money for that finish?
Kids got nerves of steel though he will never have more pressure at UT than he has right now and he is playing unbelievable! Nothing rattles the kid.
The best part is he will be able to pull some grade A money grubbin tail after this! Lol
I THINK they just skip him and everyone behind him moves up a spot.
If he won or finished high enough, he cold opt to "turn pro" and take the money. Let's hope he doesn't do quite that well.
Not true. To participate as an amateur, he had to waive the right to collect any prize money (except hole in one awards) before the tournament began. Rule 3-1.
There is no mid-tournament "opt-in" rule.
I like the pairings for both. Spieth with Cabrera and Hossler with Dufner.
I just saw Yahoo did a bit on Hossler...excuse the link, it's for mobile devices.
That was my understanding. Thanks for confirming.
You're welcome. By the way, I suspect the NCAA would consider accepting a hole in one award to be an amateurism violation, even if the USGA does not.
Just saw Beau warming up on the golf pre game...he has all Longhorn gear on today...going to be good to see the logo on tv at the US Open.

WOW what a putt
Hossler with the perfectly planned par on the first hole. Left rough, lay up, third shot runs over the green, 18' or so putt from the off the green for par
NBC coverage goes from Speith birdie to Hossler par save. Both wearing orange. Boner-tastic.
