New Delhi: The phone hasn't stopped ringing for Shubham Jaglan since the nine-year-old golfer returned last week from the United States after winning the Taylormade world juniors in July. And if that's not it, Shubham also finished runners-up in two other American events, the Callaway and US Kids world juniors (7 to 8 years age group) in a stunning six-week campaign. This made Shubham the first Indian junior to achieve this feat.

As a child, Shubham learnt his golfing skills in the fields of Israna, a village near Panipat. Sensing his amazing skills, the Jaglans shut their family milk business in Israna and shifted to New Delhi last year.

Apart from his parents, a lot of the credit also goes to the Golf Foundation and the Delhi Golf Club. They not only funded Shubham's training, equiptment and tournaments but also sponsored his trip to the US.
