Looking back at some of the memorable PGTI wins before the age of 20

Today, 19-year-old Shaurya Binu claimed his maiden win on the PGTI Tour. Shaurya carded an amazing final round of 64 to win the Vooty Master 2024.

That victory in Vikarabad, made Shaurya one of the youngest winners on the PGTI Tour. Over the years, many Indian golfers have won on the Tour while still being in their teens.

Here are some of the popular PGTI victories before the age of 20:


Shubhankar Sharma & Karandeep Kochhar:



Shubhankar in 2014 won the PGTI Cochin Masters at 17 years and eight months which made him the youngest winner on the PGTI Tour of that time. However, his record was broken by Karandeep Kochhar, who won the 2016 Players Championship while still being an amateur at age of 17 years and five months, making him the record holder for being the youngest winner on the Indian Tour.

Kshitij Naveed Kaul:


In October 2018, Kshitij made his professional debut at the Panasonic Open. Kshitij recorded a top-ten result (T6) on his Asian Tour debut. And five months later, Kshitij claimed his breakthrough win at the 2019 Pune Open. During the time of his victory, Kshitij was 18-years-old.

Aadil Bedi:


At the 2020 Bengal Open, Chandigarh’s Aadil Bedi defeated Udayan Mane in a thrilling six-hole playoff. It was Aadil’s first pro win at the age of 19.

"It's incredible to win my first title in such a manner. It was my first event of the year and I managed to get in the groove early in the first round which helped me build up to the final round,” said Aadil after winning the Bengal Open in March 2020.
