The impoverished and illiterate descendant of an indentured labourer, Papwa Sewgolum started playing golf at a young age and, with his non-conforming 'wrong arm' grip, he soon became a champion.


The impoverished and illiterate descendant of an indentured labourer, Papwa Sewgolum started playing golf at a young age and, with his non-conforming 'wrong arm' grip, he soon became a champion. He won the Natal Open twice but was refused access to the whites-only clubhouse, and in 1963 he had to receive his trophy in the rain. This title graphically brings to life Papwa's remarkable career, and captures both the richness of golf and the soul of a tortured country.
