Early Life and Education
Adam Bratton had yet to realize it when Tuesday and Wednesday were to be his last rounds of high school golf – two rounds that may determine his chance at an IHSAA state championship title at Prairie View High. But it’s hard to shake the lingering feeling that these were going to be his final rounds before graduating next month from Castle High.
He’s a 4.0 student, never craving sweet snacks and trusting his coaches. Together with his parents he took their time finding an appropriate college for himself.
Ohio State provided him with that opportunity, where he’ll join a long and distinguished tradition of success.

Bratton has led Oregon State’s Cowboy golf program through one of its most successful seasons to date during his tenure, winning both NCAA Championship and all four Major Championships at Karsten Creek on home turf. Furthermore, Hovland and Wolff were All-Americans under his guidance as he led the nation in tournament victories.
Castle High School standout Bratton will compete alongside some of golf’s greatest players at Oakmont Country Club and Longue Vue Club in Pennsylvania for the 121st United States Amateur Championship. He did not take this step lightly and recognizes its associated pressure.
