    From the article:

    "Disc golf

    Don’t laugh. The invention of the flying disc, which was trademarked as a Frisbee in the late 1950s by Wham-O, has spawned all kinds of activities, including football and “ultimate” competitions worldwide. Today there are more than 2,600 courses nationwide, with 11 to 14 percent annual growth. The Professional Disc Golf Association had more than 14,000 active members in 2009, as well as men and women pro players, who are sponsored by equipment companies. In 2010, worldwide tournaments offered nearly $2 million in prize money."

        Cool! But I wonder if $2 million in prize money for all disc golf tournaments in 2010 seems a little lower of an estimate than actuality?
