A 10-year-old son of a milkman, Shubham Jaglan, from rural Haryana, scripted a scintillating one-stroke win at the Junior World Golf Championships being played in California, reports NDTV.
Shubham set the golf course afire with as many as thirteen birdies during his three rounds. Though he missed out last year finishing runner-up, with his sheer determination he made sure he got the top billing this year.
An elated Shubham said:
“I have finally done it! I have won one of the most prestigious tournaments in junior golf. All the credit goes to my family, Delhi Golf Club, The Golf Foundation and my coach Nonita Lall Qureshi.”
Shubham was taken under the wings of the Golf Foundation, pioneered by Arjuna Awardee and Asian Games gold medallist Amit Luthra.
The foundation correctly identified potential in him and helped Shubham with the game.
