Yes, soccer golf or footgolf is a real thing and actually growing in popularity. Check out the new Nike ad with Rooney and McIlroy. Oh yeah, the Brazilian Roaldo makes an appearance in the spot, too.
Wayne Rooney surprises Rory McIlroy at the first tee by bringing out the new Nike Ordem Football. Inspired by golf ball design, the Nike Ordem ball has unrivaled flight control through aerodynamic grooves. Flight perfected.
Maybe Rooney has found his post English Premier League career in soccer golf. I could picture him, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs battling it out the greens and the sand traps.
