10-yr-old Shubham Jaglan wins World Junior Golf C’ship
Shubham Jaglan, a 10-year-old son of a milkman from rural Haryana, scripted a scintillating one-stroke win at the Junior World Golf Championships being played at Welk Resort Fountain Course here on Saturday.
His three-day total of seven-under par 179 was better than rest of the field to become the Junior World Champion in his age category. Shubham blitzed the golf course over the past three days with not less than as many as thirteen birdies during his three rounds. Five of them came during the final round on Saturday which proved to be the difference as he was in the joint lead at the end of round 2.
Shubham, who had missed out last year with a runner up finish but through sheer determination, he made sure he got the top billing this year.
Shubham was taken under the wings of the Golf Foundation pioneered by Arjuna Awardee and Asian Games gold medallist, Amit Luthra.
