Young golf prodigy Shubham Jaglan shares what drives him. He is an amateur golfer who won the Junior World Golf Championships in 2015.

He is now the face of Indian junior golf as his humble beginnings have made headlines. A milkman’s son, he is now world famous for learning golf via VHS tapes and practising in agricultural fields of Haryana. An NRI started a golf academy in Jaglan’s village where the kid was enrolled into the academy by his grandfather. Against the wishes of his family and despite the academy shutting down, Jaglan continued his practice on a small piece of land in his backyard. This land was cleaned by his father and converted into a green with three holes.

He was present at the #IndiaGolfAwards to receive a special recognition.
