    Kraft turned pro in 1986 after he graduated from the University of Tampa. For a number of years, Kraft played on the mini tours in the United States without much success. He won his PGA Tour card in 1991 after finishing 34th on the Nationwide Tour money list. He kept his card until 2003. His rookie season was uneventful having only a single top 10 finish, finishing in a tie for 6th at the Kemper Open.

    In 1993, Kraft finished runner up at the Walt Disney World/Oldsmobile Classic and also won an unofficial Tour event, the Deposit Guaranty Golf Classic. He finished the year 60th on the money list. 1994 brought Kraft another runner up place, this time at the Motorola Western Open where he finished a shot behind Nick Price. Kraft had another season of close calls in 1998 when he finished second twice and finished the year 56th on the money list.

    He lost his card in 2002 and failed to get it back until the 2006 season. It was in 2008 that Kraft finally captured his first and only Tour win. At 45 years old and after 379 PGA Tour events, Kraft won the Puerto Rico Open by one shot from fellow Americans, Jerry Kelly and Bo Van Pelt. The win gave him a two year exemption for the Tour. The next two seasons, he only made the cut in four events and duly lost his card. His last Tour event was the Puerto Rico Open in 2011. Kraft is now eligible for the Champions Tour.
