For the seventh time in the last eight playings of the Barracuda Championship, a first-time PGA Tour winner was holding the trophy. Only it wasn't the one most expected during the back nine on Sunday at Tahoe Mountain Club in Truckee, Calif..

Patrick Rodgers looked like he was on his way to finally grabbing his first title in his 246th tour start. But Akshay Bhatia had other ideas. With birdies on two of the last three holes, he tied Rodgers at 40 points under the tournament's Modified Stableford Scoring system. When Rodgers missed a birdie try on his last hole, the twosome headed to a playoff, Bhatia claiming the title with a par on the first extra hole.

Bhatia, a 21-year-old lefty playing on the PGA Tour under special temporary status after a runner-up finish at the Puerto Rico Open in March, was playing in his 36th career event, quickly fulfilling the promise he showed as a touted junior golfer who decided to turn pro rather than play college golf. Betting on himself paid off as he quickly earned status on the Korn Ferry Tour before rising to the PGA Tour.

With the win, Bhatia earned a first-place prize money payout of $684,000 from an overall purse of $3.8 million. Here’s the prize money payouts for each golfer who made the cut this week in California.
