Joseph Bramlett shot a pair of 65s over the weekend to win the Korn Ferry Tour Championship and earn full exempt status for the 2021-22 PGA Tour season.

Bramlett started his final round a shot back of the lead and opened with a bogey. On his back nine, he rode a surge of five consecutive birdies on Nos. 12-16 at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, Indiana, and ran away with a four-shot victory.

“It’s a huge deal, man. Every week you’re playing for life-changing opportunities,” he said. “Yeah, it took me a long time to get my card back in 2019 and it was one of the biggest days of my life. So I’m just so excited and congratulatory to everybody who got their first card today. It’s a really, really big deal.”

Also earning full status in the big leagues next season: Stephan Jaeger, who finished No. 1 in the season-long points standings for The 25. Bramlett and Jaeger also earned a spot in the 2022 Players Championship.

Trey Mullinax, who had the solo lead after each of the first three rounds, fell short of going wire-to-wire but still earned a PGA Tour card. With his parents, wife and two kids in the gallery for the weekend rounds, Mullinax posted a final-round 70 to finish solo second at 16 under.

This was the final chance for several golfers to earn their 2021-22 PGA Tour cards and it went down to the wire for Justin Lower, who needed to get up-and-down for par on the 18th hole and he did just that. He nabbed the 25th spot in the Finals 25.
