US Amateur Qualifying Results: Yun, Bramlett, Cox, Ziegler, Chung, Kemmer are in championship
So far we know of six Stanford players who have qualified for this year's US Amateur to be played August 24-30 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, while Sihwan Kim is a first alternate. The latest qualifer on August 10 was incoming freshman Andrew Yun from Chandler Arizona who won a playoff to finish 2nd with a 36-hole total of 136 at Tucson National GC.
The following qualifying rounds include July 27 qualifying dates from around the country.
First, great news that not only is Joseph Bramlett playing again after his long bout with injury, but he finished 2nd at the Peninsula Golf & Country Club in San Mateo, CA, with a 138 total behind the leader Joseph Cox who fired a 137. Head Coach Conrad Ray did not qualify at this same venue.
Other qualifiers included Steve Ziegler who qualified 2nd in Ft. Collins, Colorado, with a 136 total, David Chung also finishing 2nd with a 140 total in Hamilton, NY and recent grad Dodge Kemmer leading qualifiers in Wichita, Kansas, with his 134 total. Sihwan Kim is first alternate at the Hamilton, NY qualifier with a 142 total.
We have not yet heard of results for other Stanford players who tried to qualify. We'll be closely following the action at Southern Hills when the US Amateur gets underway.
