Video: Slum golf and a millionaire
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.
