       IMPERIAL TOUR AMBASSADOR BEAU HOSSLER FINISHES 2nd AT HOUSTON OPEN

BOURBON, MO. – Imperial Headwear, the #1 headwear brand for private and resort golf facilities as reported by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) in their member survey the last three consecutive years, reported their Tour Ambassador, Beau Hossler, finished 2nd at the 2018 Houston Open this past weekend.

Hossler captured the second-place overall finish after a one hole sudden death playoff with PGA Tour veteran Ian Poulter. The runner up position resulted in a paycheck of $756,000 and 300 FedEx Cup Points for Hossler, who is currently ranked 28th on the FedEx Cup points list with earnings of $1,360,414 so far in the 2018 season.

“Imperial is very proud of Beau and his performance during his first year on Tour,” said David Shaffer, vice president of sales & marketing at Imperial. “He continues to get better each week, constantly putting himself in contention and learning from his experiences. It’s only a matter of time before he wins his first PGA Tour tournament.”

The 23-year old California native and former Haskins Award winner at the University of Texas typically wears Imperial’s popular lightweight cotton style X210Z “The Zero,” but this past week at the Houston Open decided to sport Imperial’s style 3161 “Tour Visor.”

Hossler first entered the global golf stage at the 2012 U.S. Open held at the Olympic Club after taking the lead late in the second round while wearing Imperial’s Tour Visor. The 17-year old ultimately finished T29 in the tournament.

“Imperial is golf’s classic brand,” said Beau Hossler. “I’ve been a fan of theirs since my junior golf days. I’m truly honored to represent the 100-year old brand, and endorse their products on and off the course.”

Imperial Headwear joins TaylorMade-adidas Golf and Konica Minolta as Hossler’s corporate sponsors. For more information about Imperial Headwear please visit ImperialSports.com, contact your local sales representative or call (800) 950-1916.
