ESPN's short video about swinging in the slums with one extraordinary Mumbai caddy.

This is such a great story. A classic about the two halves of Mumbai that gives one of the world's most exclusive and expensive leisure sports some street cred. 

Millionaire Mumbai venture capitalist Ashish Kacholia narrates a seven-minute ESPN-produced short docu about Anil Mane, a gifted caddy at the prestigious Bombay Presidency Golf Club, whom Kacholia sponsored to play on the semi-pro tour.

Cut to Mane and his boys playing golf off the rooftops of their shanty homes with hand-twisted, rusty metal rods, plastic balls and "garbage penalty strokes" in a unique Mumbai invention called the three-hole slum golf tournament.

Trust me, trust fund baby. You've never seen anything like this before.
