Thai Golfer Becomes Youngest Champ
By: Talk Bangkok
14-year-old Pachara Khongwatmai won the Singha Hua Hin Open on Sunday making him the youngest male player to win a professional golf tournament, reports the Bangkok Post.

Pachara shot a 67, clinching the title by four strokes against a field of Asean PGA pros, many of which are twice his age. His overall 13 under aggregate score left players, such as Prom Meesawat dumbfounded.

Winning the tournament made Pachara the youngest male to win a professional golf tournament. Previously that distinction was held by Japan's Ryo Ishikawa who was 15 when he won the 2007 Munsingwear Open KSB Cup. The youngest player overall is Lydia Ko from New Zealand. Pachara may be younger than the Kiwi golfer, but tour organizers are still working to confirm his birthdate.

Despite possibly being the next Tiger Woods, Pachara has said he will spend his holiday from school catching up on the homework he missed while participating in the tournament.
