Shubham Jaglan, India's 11-year-old golf prodigy, bagged his first-ever USKids European Junior Championship, by a massive 13 strokes, at the Craigielaw Golf Club in Longniddry, Scotland.

His three-round total was nine-under 207, with individual round scores being 69-72-66. At the 18-hole three-day competition in Scotland, Shubham led right from first day to clinch the prestigious title.

The tournament is a prelude to the prestigious World Championships - which will essentially host the same playing field as the European Championship. In 2015, Jaglan had finished second in the competition.
