The next time your kids complain because you won’t rearrange your monthly budget to buy them the latest pair of Jordans, make them sit down and watch this documentary. It’s called Tiger Woods of Bengal, and it’ll give them some perspective.

In Tiger Woods of Bengal, aspiring filmmaker Danny Mamik travels to West Bengal to meet a group of boys who play golf at the Chalsa Polo Club.

Sound boring? Well you see, there’s a catch. These boys, ranging from eight to 16, don’t play golf with real clubs. Their parents all pick tea for a living, so they’re too poor to get real golf clubs. Instead, these boys make their own golf clubs out of branches and logs.

That’s right. They make their own. And they are pretty damned good, too.

The film is 15 minutes long, so you might want to wait until your boss goes to lunch to watch it. But it’s definitely worth a look.
