Joseph Bramlett finally able to compete again
Senior Joseph Bramlett is on the mend and finally able to compete again. A major step back to the 2nd team All-American caliber play Joseph had in 2007-08 was his recent qualifying once again for the US Amateur to be played at Southern Hills Aug 23-30. Joseph finished 2nd in sectional qualifying to teammate Jordan Cox with a 138 total at the Peninsula Golf and Country Club in San Mateo, CA.
In an article written in the San Jose Mercury newspaper, Joseph talked about what it's like to compete again after his injury battles.
"I'm excited to get back to competition," said Bramlett, a long hitter who tore ligaments in his right wrist. "When bad stuff happens to you, you tend to grow. I appreciate the game so much more. When I make double [bogey], it's not the end of the world." "It's just fun getting out and competing again," Bramlett said. To read the article click here.
