(Danica Pecirep, NECN: Leicester, MA) - Golf is one of the most popular sports in the world. But have you heard of disc golf? Tossing a frisbee like disc toward a basket is a serious sport - its called disc golf. in Leicester , those who play it are competing in a tournament called the Vibram open. "It's both physical and mental- you can throw the disc as far as you want, you can practice and be one of the top pros, but as soon as they tournament rolls around and you're standing in front of a 10 foot putt its all in the brain." Disc golf became an official sport in the late 1960's - that's when the basket the frisbees are tossed into was created in California. Today its popularity is booming ...as it's played professionally around the globe. in the US alone, there are about 2,000 disc golf courses.
