SFHS grad Bramlett earns first tour win
Pro golfer and St. Francis High graduate Joseph Bramlett shot a 7-under-par 65 in the final round to win the Korn Ferry Tour Championship and secure his PGA Tour card earlier this month. It was the first tour win for the Stanford University grad. Bramlett finished 20-under par for the tournament, held Sept. 2-5 at the Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, Ind., prevailing by four strokes. He birdied five consecutive holes on the back nine of his last round. The victory guarantees Bramlett full exempt status for the 2021-22 PGA Tour season.
