Joseph Bramlett ('10) receives sponsor's exemption to PGA Tour's Fry's Open Open Tournament Director Ian Knight announced today that Stanford graduate and Saratoga, Calif. resident, Joseph Bramlett, will receive the fifth sponsor exemption for the 2010 Open. Knight will hand out a total of eight sponsor exemptions for the tournament, scheduled to be played, October 11-17 at CordeValle in San Martin, Calif.
“Bramlett is certainly a promising local talent with a bright future ahead,” said Knight, “His achievements while at Stanford and his appearance as an amateur in the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach certainly speak to his talent and character as a player. We look forward to watching him compete.”
Although the 22-year-old Bramlett missed the cut by five shots at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, he tied for 5th among the 12 amateurs in the field, and had an opportunity to play a practice round with fellow Stanford grad, Tiger Woods. Bramlett was a five-time U.S. Amateur qualifier, including 2002 at Oakland Hills where he was the youngest qualifier in the championship’s history at age 14. He was an All-American his freshman year at Stanford, when he helped lead the Cardinal to an NCAA title. Injuries to his wrist marred the remains of his career at Stanford, but he is now at 100 percent physically.  Read the complete press release about the tournament from the PGA Tour.
