Are you an aging athlete who used to play soccer but also enjoys golf? Or maybe you’re all about Frolf but don’t quite feel the thrill of tossing around a frisbee anymore because throwing a frisbee is actually pretty easy after some practice. Whatever the case is I’ve got a new sport, FootGolf, that might interest you.

As stated in the headline, FootGolf is a hybrid sport. It takes the skill required in soccer and puts it onto the golf course. So, instead of swinging a golf club or throwing a frisbee to try and land it into the ‘hole’ in this instance you’re kicking a ball really, really far:

I’m not lying when I said I woke up this morning and thought to myself ‘I need a new hobby’. I don’t necessarily see FootGolf ever becoming my main hobby because it requires one of these courses to be nearby but I’d certainly take a whack at this sport if I ever found myself near one of the courses.
