Default Youngest player to win a challenger

Does anyone know who the youngest player to win a challenger is? I know Bernard Tomic was 16 years and 4 months old when he won the Melbourne challenger but I'm sure there has been a player out there younger, maybe Nadal?

I'm almost convinced Chang is the youngest Challenger winner - 15 years 9 months winning Las Vegas in 1987

chang's youngest records are ridiculous. can you imagine a 17 year old (and barely 17 at that) winning RG today? lol.

Borg, Wilander, Becker and Chang deny the theory of weak mentality being a teenager

Tennis changed a lot since then. Today it's impossible to do damage in ATP being a teenager.

It's hard to make a ranking for the Futures because you have the archives only until 1998.
Since then, Nadal and Djokovic won their first Future at the age of 16 years and 1 month, I think nobody did better

A little younger than 18 yo for Hewitt, a little older ther 18 yo for Federer. I'm too lazy to make the exact math in month.
