According to Bing, the top outdoor activities this summer for “bringing London to your backyard,” include Frisbee Golf as one of the top activities.

Year over year disc golf is becoming increasingly popular, and either to Bing’s err or users in general, there is still a huge amount of the population which call the sport Frisbee golf. We aren’t picky over the proper usage of the name for the sport, but Frisbee is technically a brand, and technically not an activity. But really, if somebody calls it Frisbee, don’t look at them and act like you don’t know what they are talking about.
Over 80% of you voted that you feel that Disc Golf should be an Olympic Sport – let’s make it happen!

Let’s make it so that Disc Golf comes out of being a “backyard activity” and an Olympic Sport in 2016 (or 2020… or before I die).
