Super Badhwar wins World Junior crown

Badhwar, who turned in cards of 69 and 71 in the first two rounds, sank five birdies and an eagle against three bogeys to total eight-under 208 and notch up a one-stroke win over Rico Hoey (66).

After parring the first two holes, Badhwar picked up a birdie at the third but a bogey on the next pulled him back. The Indian then dropped a birdie and an eagle before another bogey spoilt his card. But he knocked down two more birdies at the last two holes to make the turn at four-under at the Riverwalk Golf Course.

On his back nine, he dropped a bogey in the 12th before recovering with a birdie at the 13th hole and parred the rest to emerge victories in the boys’ 13-14 years category.
Badhwar, who turns 14 next month, has been a bright golfer but luck has eluded him so far in the World Junior Championship. The Indian finished five times in the top seven, including two runners-up.
