Aug. 15, 2007
Stanford, Calif. - Scene Of Success: Kim Returns To Olympic Club
Stanford's Joseph Bramlett, Daniel Lim and Sihwan Kim have qualified to compete in the 2007 U.S. Amateur, which will be held at the Lakeside and Ocean Courses at the Olympic Club in San Francisco next week.
The first and second rounds of stroke play are set for Monday and Tuesday (Aug. 20-21) at the Lakeside and Ocean Courses. All match play rounds will be played at the Lakeside Course, beginning Wednesday (Aug. 22). A single round of match play is scheduled on Wednesday, followed by the second and third rounds on Thursday (Aug. 23), and single rounds again from Friday-Sunday (Aug. 24-26). The U.S. Amateur will have 10 hours of national coverage on The Golf Channel and NBC over the last five days of the championship.
Bramlett and Lim were both members of Stanford's 2007 NCAA Championship team, while Kim will begin his first year on the Farm this fall. Bramlett remains the youngest player to ever qualify for the US Amateur, as he did so at the age of 14 in 2002. Kim, a Cardinal newcomer from Buena Park, Calif., won the U.S. Junior Amateur at The Olympic Club in 2004. He defeated 14-year-old David Chung of Fayetteville, N.C., in the final and will be playing for the first time at The Olympic Club since that winning match. Kim is one of 11 USGA champions included in the 2007 U.S. Amateur field.
