Brandon Stone (born 20 April 1993) is a South African professional golfer who plays on the European Tour and Sunshine Tour.
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, before turning professional in 2013.
In 2015, Stone played on the Sunshine Tour and Challenge Tour. He finished 14th on the Challenge Tour rankings, aided by second-place finishes at the Barclays Kenya Open and GANT Open and graduated to the European Tour. In November 2015, he earned his first professional win at the Sunshine Tour's Lion of Africa Cape Town Open.
In January 2016, making his second European Tour start as a full member, Stone won the South African Open by two strokes. The event was co-sanctioned with the Sunshine Tour.
In July 2017, Stone employed Alan Burns as his full time caddie commencing with The Open Championship. He had previously worked with Burns at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in December 2015.
He won the 2018 Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open at Gullane with a final-round 60, tying the European Tour record, after narrowly missing a birdie putt on the final hole that would have given him a 59.
