Rahil Gangjee knows the coaches and trainees at Protouch from when he was very young. He would see them hanging around courses he grew up in and remembers that “they hardly got a chance to play despite being good hitters of the ball”.
“I’m very glad to know that someone is trying to do something for them. They used to get lost in a world none of us like and giving them a chance to do something better is a great effort. It gives them a direction in life,” said the city pro, who has a title on the Asian Tour.
“The caddies or ball boys hardly got a chance to play when I was growing up. That they are being groomed in a systematic way is great to know. They know where they are going and can also make a living out of being associated with golf.”
