Caddie uses homemade clubs and balls to bring golf to Mumbai slums

A group of golf enthusiasts in central India have come together to bring the sport to the slums of Mumbai, as seen in this heartwarming video. The game, known as slum golf, uses the back streets in place of golf greens to play on, as well as creating clubs and balls from homemade items to play with. Reportedly it was invented by a group of caddies from the neighbourhood of Chembur in 2000, as they wanted to play but were not allowed to do so for free. One of the founders, Suresh Mehboobani, enjoys playing with his six-year-old daughter and has since taken the sport overseas to play in Paris after gaining viral attention online.
