Australia’s Kieran Pratt is inarguably one of the hottest amateurs in the game.
With four victories in his last seven starts, including a dominating performance
at the Lake Macquarie Amateur which he won by 11 strokes, Pratt has vaulted
up the World Amateur Golf Ranking to No. 16. Back-to-back-to-back victories at
the Dunes Medal (in early December), the Port Phillip Amateur and the Victorian
Amateur Match Play Championship, to go along with Lake Macquarie, have
cemented Pratt’s position as one of Australia’s brightest young stars.
