Bhatia’s third mini-tour win

Global Indians

Former top-ranked US junior, 19-year-old Indian-American Akshay Bhatia won his third pro event in USA, shooting rounds of 67-62-63 (24-under 192) to win by four on the G Pro Tour in South Carolina, USA for a first prize of US$ 20,000 (₹14.6 lakhs). 

Bhatia’s earlier two wins came on the Swing Thought Tour – ST 11 at Old South Golf Links, Hilton Head in South Carolina (August 2020) after shooting 63-67 (130) and ST 12 at Brunswick, Georgia (February 2021), where he shot 62-70 (-10) to force a playoff and beat Alejandro Tosti on the first extra hole.

Bhatia, who turned pro in 2020 straight out of high school, has made three cuts in five events on the PGA TOUR, with his best finish of tied-9th coming at the US$ 6.6mn Safeway Open in Sep. 2020. It will be exciting to see young Akshay develop in stature as a player.
