Brandon Stone won several amateur tournaments in South Africa and played on the 2012 South Africa Eisenhower Trophy team. He played one year of college golf at the University of Texas, winning three events in his freshman year, before turning professional in 2013.
Having recently secured his playing rights on the European Tour last December with a sixth-place finish at the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final on the Challenge Tour – he finished 14th on the Challenge Tour rankings, aided by second-place finishes at the Barclays Kenya Open and GANT Open – Stone immediately secured his first victory on the Sunshine Tour with a win at the Lion of Africa Cape Town Open.
Thriving off such positivity, something Stone seems to be exceedingly good at, he started 2016 in the best way possible with a win at the BMW SA Open proudly hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni. He followed it up with a solid share of 28th in the Joburg Open and he made the cut in the first two events on the Desert Swing of The European Tour.
With his BMW SA Open win, Stone receives a two-year playing exemption on The European Tour which will hopefully lead to many more great performances.
