Ashburn, VA (August 31, 2016) – Sihan Sandhu is a really nice kid. He’s 10 years old, a student at Creighton’s Corner Elementary School, and he fidgets restlessly in his seat when you’re talking to someone else, but sits still, looks you in the eye, and speaks calmly, intelligently, and politely when you talk with him.
He’s also probably one of the best golfers his age who has ever lived.
At the U.S. Kids Golf 2016 World Championship at Legacy Golf Links in Pinehurst, NC, earlier this month, Sihan scored 23 under par, shattering the previous record of 18 under. The next closest finisher in the boys 10-year-old category shot 6 under par, placing Sihan 17 strokes ahead. The next best score in the tournament was by 11-year-old Shubham Jaglan from New Delhi, India, who tied the previous record of 18 under.
