Former Salado High School three-time state champion Ryan O'Rear made five birdies and fired a 3-under-par 68 in Sunday's final round of the 111th Texas Amateur to share 11th place at Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg.

O'Rear, now a Leander resident, made the 36-hole cut on the number after consecutive 74s, then played his final 36 holes in 4-under 138 to charge up the leaderboard. The former Baylor standout made 14 birdies in the four-day event. The only final-round score better than O'Rear's was the 66 shot by Frisco's Tommy Morrison, who moved into a four-way share of third place at 2-under 282.

Austin's Trey Bosco was at 1-over 143 through two rounds but went 67-69 on the weekend to come back and win the championship with a 5-under 279 total. The incoming Baylor freshman finished one stroke ahead of Arlington's Caleb Hicks, who shot a first-round 65 but didn't break par in the final three rounds.

Salado graduate Ryan O'Rear shot his second consecutive 3-over-par 74 on Friday to make the 36-hole cut exactly on the number in the 111th Texas Amateur at Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg.

Meanwhile, Temple resident and incoming Belton senior Dallas Hankamer missed the cut after following Thursday's first-round 79 with Friday's second-round 78.

O'Rear, who won three straight Class 2A individual state championships for Salado from 2007-09, now resides in Leander. The former Baylor standout and professional golfer who's regained his amateur status was one of seven players tied for 51st place with a 6-over 148 total. He'll begin the third round at 8:10 a.m. Saturday.

Hankamer, a 6A state tournament qualifier in 2019 as a Belton sophomore, made three birdies on the front nine Friday but was hindered by two double bogeys and six bogeys overall.

Addison's Chris Wheeler carded a 71 to maintain the outright lead at 7-under 135, one stroke ahead of San Antonio's Andres Acevedo and Mark Reppe of Dallas.
