In Longniddry, Scotland, child prodigy Shubham Jaglan takes baby steps to success


Scotland Amit Luthra wouldn't fret if Shubham Jaglan loses. On the off chance that anything, he puts the 11-year-old in positions where he is liable to lose. The thought behind the procedure is to advance a forceful hitting the fairway mentality in his ward. What's more, the strategy demonstrated fruitful when Jaglan stowed his first ever European Championship, by a gigantic 13 strokes. "Regularly these competitions get chose by a solitary stroke, or at times they even go to a playoff. So 13 shots is gigantic," says Luthra.

At the Craigielaw Golf Club in Longniddry, Scotland, the opposition serves as a prelude to the prestigious World Championships – which will basically have the same playing field as at the European occasion. A year ago, playing in the opposition surprisingly, in the 10-year-old young men class, Jaglan completed runner-up, losing by a solitary stroke. It was then that Luthra risked upon testing Jaglan's aptitude by putting him through harder rivalries, in higher age bunches. "The nature of the field in India is bad. So he'd must be pushed up to higher gatherings on the off chance that we needed him to show signs of improvement," clarifies the 1982 Asian Games gold medallist.

The initial step was making him contend in the U-14's in spite of him being in the U-12. "At that age, at regular intervals has a major effect. So by making him play against greater and harder adversaries, and testing him to win those matches, he had no real option except to get in a more noteworthy level of assaulting golf. That was the objective," Luthra includes.
