2nd African American joins Tiger Woods on the PGA tour

Monday, December 6th, 2010

(Statesman) Joseph Bramlett, a 23-year-old former Stanford standout, earned a PGA Tour card, joining Tiger Woods as the only players on tour of black descent. Bramlett shot a 4-under 68 Monday in Winter Garden, Fla., rallying from 33rd at the start of the day to make the cutoff for a tour card by two strokes. He finished 11 under at the six-round final stage of qualifying school to tie for 16th.

The top 25 scores and ties earned PGA Tour cards for 2011. Billy Mayfair won the tournament at 18 under 411.

Among the notables who did not qualify: Erik Compton, a two-time heart transplant recipient, and Briny Baird, who lost his card on the final hole of the year at Disney to finish No. 127 on the money list. Austin’s Omar Uresti was well off the pace at 432.
