There are two worlds, poverty and businessmen…

    Very powerful documentary! Two worlds in India – The Economic World, Rich or Poor & The Golf World, On Course or Off Course.
    Hmmm just like America. If you want to really grow the game to EVERYBODY – it has to cost less, take less time and be assessable. If you can play in slums, parks, the beach, deserts, school yards, your own yard or virtually anyplace, i.e, “off course”, then this pretty much tells you where the future of golf is – “off course”.

    Spread the word you heard it here first!
