The U.S FootGolf National Championship continued at Winton in Amherst on Sunday.

This is the first time footgolf has been included in the State Games of America, attracting 71 players from the U.S., Hungary, Mexico, Spain and Italy. Laura Balestrini, president of the American FootGolf Federation, said footgolf was introduced in Europe in 2007 and came to America in 2011.

According to the footgolf.us, footgolf is played on a golf course and is much like golf but with soccer balls.
