Bubba craft the future of golf transportation

Just when you were starting to believe that a round of golf couldn’t possibly be any more entertaining, along comes Bubba Watson and his hovercraft golf cart – dubbed the BW1.

Flirting dangerously close to April Fool’s Day territory, Watson and sponsor Oakley have released a video showing the future of golf course transportation.

"Golf carts have looked the same. They've been the same. You've got to stay 30 yards (27 metres) from the green, you've got to stay on the cart path when it's raining," Watson says in the video which has gone viral.

"Let's have fun. Let's go through the water hazard, come off the other side right by the green, putt your ball in the hole then you can drive back across the water hazard. Who doesn't want to do that?"

The video shows Watson gliding across fairways and water hazards, while conventional carts lumber along the designated pathways.

Watson is joined in the video by Chris Fitzgerald, president of Neoteric Hovercraft Inc, a company which already sells similar-sized hovercraft models for around $30,000.

“Bubba's idea was to see if we can incorporate a hovercraft principal, that is riding on a bubble of air, to the existing golf cart," Fitzgerald says.

"The big advantage of the hovercraft is that it has a footprint pressure of about 33 times less than the human foot so by hovering across a green you leave absolutely no trace."

At roughly three times the price of a standard golf cart, the BW1 will obviously be aimed at the high-end recreational golfer, those who feel the journey is as important as the game itself.
