A golf course in Tacoma, Wash., is the latest to open a course. You need no clubs. You kick a soccer ball down the fairway, onto the green and into a 21-inch hole.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Soccer keeps getting more popular. It competes with football for kids' attention and now it's moving in on golf. The Meadow Park golf course in Tacoma, Washington is the latest place to open a footgolf course. You need no clubs. You kick a soccer ball down the fairway, onto the green and into a 21-inch hole.
