He is only 10 but star golfers Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are his friends on Facebook. On the other hand, he shares a winners' list with them.

Meet Shubham Jaglan, the best little golfer in the world.

There are many things you don't know about Shubham, even though he is now on TV all the time, but you probably know this: He won the IMG Academy Junior World Championships on 16 July in San Diego, California, in the 9-10 age category, and the IJGA (International Junior Golf Academy) World Stars of Junior Golf in Las Vegas less than a week later.

Questions, questions, questions. He's got a lot of them. Like, why is Lionel Messi better than Cristiano Ronaldo? Or, can you film a remote-controlled toy car and make it look like a real one? He even doubts if the Woods and McIlroy added on his Facebook profile are the real ones. "But I don't know if they are the real Tiger and Rory, there's a lot of fake stuff that happens on Facebook, you know?"

In his measured, soft tones, he can talk through breakfast, 18 holes, lunch, tea, and dinner. On the golf course, he is silent, focused, assured. Off it, he wants to try a hundred things at once. (Read more here )
