GREAT EXUMA, Jan 20: Indian-American golfer Akshay Bhatia has become the third-youngest player to win a Korn Ferry Tour event since the Tour's establishment in 1990 when he secured a two-stroke victory at The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay.

Bhatia, who shot a stunning bogey-free 7-under 65 in the final round on Wednesday, won the title 12 days shy of his 20th birthday, joining Australia's former World No. 1 Jason Day and Korean star Sungjae Im as the only teenagers to win titles on the development circuit which is the pathway to the PGA TOUR.

Jason Day won the 2007 Legend Financial Group Classic at 19 years, 7 months, and 26 days old, and Im was 19 years, 9 months, and 17 days old when he won his Korn Ferry Tour debut at the same event.
