Gwinnett's Witcher earns sponsor's exemption to Stadion Classic

Gwinnett native Brent Witcher received one of the final two sponsor's exemptions to the upcoming Stadion Classic at UGA, a Nationwide Tour golf tournament. The event begins Thursday and lasts through Sunday at the University of Georgia.

The 26-year-old has played in two Nationwide events this year, making the cut in one, a tie for 30th at last week's South Georgia Classic. Witcher, who played college golf at Valdosta State, won the 2009 Jack Nicklaus Award as the top college golfer in Division II.
