Gaunt was born in Lancefield, Victoria near Melbourne. His brother Chris is also a professional golfer. He lives in New Malden, England, with his wife, Caroline, and four children. He tied with Terry Pilkadaris for the Australian Medal in 1997 and turned professional in 1999.
Gaunt qualified for the European Tour via qualifying school at the end of 2003. He was unable to retain his card, and has played predominantly on lower level tours since 2005. He has won several events on those tours including 4 victories on the third-tier PGA EuroPro Tour.
In July 2010 Gaunt won the English Challenge on Europe's second tier Challenge Tour which gave him a year's exemption on that tour. He ended the season in 7th place on the Challenge Tour Rankings to earn his card on the top level European Tour for 2011.
