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 in California on Sunday.

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 as many as thirteen birdies during his three rounds. Five of them came during the final round 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.

The foundation saw the potential and have given him their unconditional support to make the game accessible to him and he is repaying their faith with his outstanding results.

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 for giving my facilities to play and practice, The Golf Foundation for giving me everything that I needed and the most important is my coach Nonita Lall Qureshi who pushed my game and mind to this level and got me all the way to winning this prestigious tournament.

"It means a lot to me and my dad especially, who was with me 24/7 and worked harder than I did. Last but not at all the least, Amit Luthra Sir who has giving me all day the support that I needed! Thanks to all my friends and family for pushing for me and making me who I am."
