Shubham Jaglan wins second junior world golf title
NEW DELHI: Ten-year-old Shubham Jaglan added another feather to his cap when he created history by winning the IJGA World Stars of Junior Golf event in Las Vegas on Thursday.
The son of a milkman from rural Haryana shot a three round score of 106 winning by a five-stroke margin, ahead of two Americans Justin Dang and Sihan Sandhu and Thailand’s Pongsapak Laopakdee for the Boys 9-10 years category title at the Angel Park.
Last Sunday, Jaglan had clinched a one-stroke win at the Junior World Golf Championships at the Welk Resort Fountain Course in California.
“It’s just a dream come true. It was all my year’s hard work. I am celebrating in a great way. All my friends are congratulating me,” Shubham said.
“It was all because of my family’s support, my coach, my school which helped me in the US, that’s why I could speak to you actually and my golf club DGC for giving me all facilities for playing. Especially my dad supported me through my life and it has been a great journey.
“I am just working hard and being honest, there are no short-cuts for me,” he said.
