Yahoo! Sports spotted this video of Watson hanging out on the course in his very own hovercraft. Apparently, the vehicle is a collaboration between Watson and Oakley in an effort to make something better designed for the intricacies of the golf course.
As you can see in the video, the BW1 can head across water in an instant and leaves a far less severe footprint than regular carts. Without a doubt, this new mode of transportation between holes is great for the sport—like I care.
This thing could leave 14-foot divots behind it and I would still want one. How do you expect me to drag myself out of bed for an early tee time and get inside a tired old golf cart now?
The fun of taking a cart out onto the course at speeds of 10 to 20 miles per hour has now lost its luster. I simply must have Bubba's Hover, but something tells me my local municipal will not have these ready by the weekend.
If the hovercraft doesn't awe-inspiring enough for you, consider that Watson taught himself how to play golf. That's right: The 34-year-old winner of the 2012 Masters gets to glide around in his very own golf cart of the future, and he's a self-made man.
Depressed? Yeah, me too.
Hit me up on Twitter, especially if you have any hovercrafts available.
