His prodigal talent and passion for the game have led Akshay Bhatia to great lengths. As a junior, he dominated events with ease, his name always rising among the top of the leaderboards. When the time came to move on, Akshay decided to pursue the next level at the Korn Ferry Tour instead of attending college. Though his professional career has always been smooth sailing, the 19-year-old’s talent and hard work continues to pay off. He started the year off in the best way possible with his first professional win at the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic. This turning point is an omen of the bright future Akshay holds ahead of him, both as a professional golfer and an extraordinary individual.
