From Pariah to Legend

Papwa Sewgolum “From Pariah to Legend” – A biography about a golfer of colour Papwa Sewgolum, an impoverished caddie fighting the grips of apartheid and becoming a hero by beating the odds and becoming a golfing legend. 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. This book showcases Papwa's remarkable career, and captures both the richness of golf and the soul of a tortured country.
