The 22-year-old claimed victory in Hobart, Tasmania as he came from behind twice to beat Australian Dylan Molinaro in five games 3-2.

The final lasted 58 minutes with Molinaro winning the opening game 11-8.

Prott responded however to take game two 11-5, but Molinaro regained the lead however as he got back to his game plan and maintained a good pace , forcing error from the Scot to win the third game 8-11 and lead 2-1.

Prott battled back well and cut the errors out of his game from there however.

He made himself difficult to break down and started to pick off Molinaro around the middle of the court. After sending the game into a fifth game by winning game four 11-3, there was no stopping Prott as he gained a lead in the deciding game and never looked back.

He secured the game 11-6 to complete the win and lift his first PSA title.
