10 year-old Indian cub Shubham Jaglan is on a collision course to become the next big thing in golf after hunting down a string of trophies in the United States.
Jaglan, the son of a milkman from Haryana, destroyed an elite field of international golfers at the IJGA World Stars of Junior Golf in Las Vegas to claim the top prize.
“It’s a dream come true. My year’s hard work has given me all these titles,” Jaglan told reporters after his victory.
Jaglan was coached since the age of seven by former Indian pro golfer Nonita Lall Qureshi, who has tirelessly worked to grove Jaglan’s swing into a machine-like motion. Born and raised in Israna, a village in Haryana’s Panipat district, Jaglan was supported by the Indian Golf Foundation, a fund to support upcoming golfers from underprivileged backgrounds. He now lives with his family in Ashram, a colon in South Delhi.
