Pierre’s Austin Hoss A Boss At State Golf

Karl's TV & Appliance Athlete of the Week

PIERRE, S.D.  —  Though Austin Hoss’ dad played college golf at North Dakota State, it’s not exactly like father like son when it comes to the links.

“He taught me a little bit but I primarily learned from other people and coaches because he kinda did things a lot different then I did.  Buddies kinda talked me into it and just kind of got into that.  Just started playing, thought it was a fun sport and just kept with it.”  Hoss says.

Starting in the sixth grade, Austin proved a quick learner at Hillsview Golf Course in Pierre.

“Just learned from coaches.  Coaches just helped me with my grip and stuff and I kind of taught myself a little bit from there.”  Austin says.

Making it ironic that his final high school meet would be the Double A Championship on his home course.

“I put a lot of pressure on myself because I knew that I could perform well here.  So I knew that I could get up to four or five under so I knew I had a pretty good chance.”  Hoss says.

And making it fitting that’d he win the championship with a AA meet record 137 over two rounds.

“It feels a little bit better than I expected because I just didn’t think it would be that close sometimes.  I thought maybe either I’d play really well or I just wouldn’t play well, but I just played consistent and well so it was fun!”  Austin says.
