Brady Watt climbs to World Number 1

Western Australian and Golf Australia National Squad member Brady Watt has climbed to the top spot on the World Amateur Golf Rankings for the first time. Watt missed the qualifying mark at the British Amateur Championship earlier this week after average rounds in high winds at Royal Cinque Ports and Prince&aposs in Kent. Watt had an outstanding 2012 season that saw him record four victories and seven second place finishes in Australia. Among his titles were the WA Amateur, Perth City Championship, Keperra Bowl and Dunes Medal. Among his second places was runner-up to Oliver Goss in the WA Open. Watt began 2013 with a second place finish in the Australian Master of the Amateurs, finished leading qualifier in the Australian Amateur and placed fifth in the Lake Macquarie International.
