Shubham Jaglan, India's 11-year-old golf prodigy, bagged his first-ever US Kids European Junior Championship, by a massive 13 strokes, at the Craigielaw Golf Club in Longniddry, Scotland.
The tournament is a prelude to the prestigious World Championships – which will essentially host the same playing field as the European Championship. In 2015, Jaglan had finished second in the competition.

Is he listed as an Indian? He has Indian parents from Kerala, but was born in UAE, right?

I don't think Indians who are born and/or raised in UAE are entitled to UAE citizenship. I suspect only a special decree from their ruler or someone like that may be needed to get citizenship which they probably use sometimes to import sportsmen to improve their sporting performance.
