If you bump around the golf course in regular golf carts, I feel sorry for you. Indeed, the era of the tricked-out golf cart has arrived. 

Busted Coverage spotted some wonderful images of the sweet ride that takes Michael Jordan around the links. Your feelings of jealousy are warranted.

Here is a closer look at a customized marvel that features a stereo system, leather seats and a cool, North Carolina paint job topped off with a Jumpman logo on the front. 

If that weren't enough, there is even a tinted sunroof, because not having one would have just been ridiculous. 

Busted Coverage also reminds us Jordan took a similar cart out for a test drive back in 2012. He was just as amazed with that golf cart as we are with this one. (Video features NSFW language.) 

'It brought water to my eyes, I was flyin’,' Jordan said.

'Was it fast,' someone asked Jordan.

'F–k yeah,' Jordan responds. 'It’s gotta be doin’ about 30.'

Doing 30 on a golf course would certainly speed up play.  

Sadly, this is only the second-greatest golf cart in existence, because I still say driving to your ball in a hovercraft is far more remarkable. 

There is Bubba Watson's hovercraft designed by Oakley. If you are wondering, you most definitely want one. 

In fact, the amazing golf conveyance is making a cameo at The Masters in Augusta. WRDW-TV spotted the massive vehicle making its way to golf's greatest major, if only to sit in the parking lot. 

Somehow, I doubt we will see Watson maneuvering around the course in a hovercraft this weekend, no matter how much we all want that to happen.

If you are anywhere near The Masters, I imagine you can take a photo with the best ride in sports while chowing down on a pimento cheese sandwich. All in all, a great day. 

Now, quit your daydreaming and get back to the dregs of municipal courses and their uncomfortable golf carts. 

I'm just impressed if my golf-cart rental features a windshield or cup holders that aren't sticky. Here, we have two revolutionaries choosing to step the golf-cart game up to unbelievable levels. 

Hit me up on Twitter and we can geek out to golf together.
