About the Book

Raised By The World is an adventurous book about hope, perseverance, passion, and grit. It recounts Vincent’s passionate journey of self-discovery which began when his dad introduced him to golf. Until then, he was an uninspired boy hunting for birds and mice with prospects limited to the confines of this economically depressed rural Zambian town. When he emerged as a young golfing prodigy and decided to pursue a career in golf, it introduced him to a new world of opportunity, but at the same time, it began a pursuit of happiness journey whose questions don’t have immediate answers and every step forward breaks traditional norms in this developing African country with fewer than 5000 golfers and 20 golf courses. Learning invaluable life lessons while enduring unimaginable predicaments along the way, he shares his exhilarating journey culminating to the moment he earned membership to the Professional Golfers Association of America.

About the Author

Vincent Kabaso is Zambia’s first elected PGA Golf Professional. His inspiring story has been featured by PGA magazine, Golf Digest, and he was recognized in the United States senate. In 2020, he was elected to the PGA Leadership Development Program and was inducted in the Zambia Golf Union Hall of Fame.

Vincent Kabaso is one of the great people I have had the pleasure to meet in the game of golf. His love for the game is obvious and proven in this surreal life story. With all the negativity in the world, read this book and enjoy the hope he shares and the great potential and possibilities that are there for all of us.
