Western Australian and World Number 4 amateur Brady Watt has joined Golf Australia’s National Squad.
Watt is currently representing Australia at the Ten Nations Cup in George, South Africa.
The 22 year-old Royal Perth member joins the squad at Tier 2 level following impressive performances in 2012 which included wins at the WA Amateur, Dunes Medal and a runner-up finish in the WA Open last October.
Golf Australia High Performance Director Brad James said he looked forward to assisting Watt with his ongoing development.
“Brady put in a number of dominant performances in 2012 which culminated in his narrow play-off loss to Oliver Goss at the WA Open late in the year, “James said.
“We’re looking forward to working with him ahead of the northern summer schedule overseas and continuing to build on his recent good form.”
Watt will play the South African Stroke Play Championship following the Ten Nations Cup which concludes on Saturday.
