Video: Bubba Watson’s Hovercraft Golf Cart


Bubba Watson is officially the coolest golfer on the planet. Not only is his name pretty great, but he is the first golfer to revolutionize the golf cart. At first, I thought this was simply an April Fools’ joke, but the video was released today. Watson has been working on a project with his sponsor Oakley to create a new and less traditional way to navigate around the golf course.

Naturally, Watson decided it would be a good idea to create a golf cart that can hover over the course without damaging the green and even make it’s way over the water hazards. Sure enough, Watson and Oakley came up with an incredible hovercraft golf cart that has blown our minds.

It is simply too good to be true.

Here is a video that shows the creation of Bubba’s amazing hovercraft golf cart:

From the official video description:

Golf carts haven’t changed much over the years. They look and feel the same. What if there was a way to improve the traditional golf cart concept and take away some of the limitations? That is what Bubba Watson and Oakley set out to do. They created the world’s first hovercraft golf cart. Using hovercraft technology, the BW1 is able to glide over any terrain, including grass, sand, and water.

Sign me up.

I would be much more inclined to put my pathetic golf skills on display on a regular basis if I was able to make my way around the course in a hovercraft. Absolutely genius.

It is highly unlikely that this will ever catch on, but golf could become much more entertaining and appeal to a younger generation if we were treated to hovercraft races in between holes.
