We associate golf with etiquette, men in polo shirts and neatly pressed trousers. A sport for those with plenty of time and some cash to spare, but a group of slum kids from India didn’t let that stop them playing the game. They don’t use the lush fairways or neatly clipped greens of a real golf club. Nor do they use real clubs or balls. Instead they use the roofs and alleys of the slums they live in as a course and melted iron bars and plastic balls to play with. They do, however, value tradition and play their game by the same rules as the real game of golf.

Update: unfortunately we had to take this great serie down. We thank you for your interest. The series can be seen in this essay.
