Okay, so I don’t know if this is a hoax or not, but who cares. This is awesome! Today, a video was released on YouTube with Bubba Watson promoting a new golf cart hovercraft, called the BW1. From hovercraft expert, Chris Fitzgerald (and presumed designer), “The big advantage of the hovercraft is that it has a footprint pressure of about 33 times less than the human foot. So, that by hovering across the green, you leave absolutely no trace … ” This could potentially allow for speeding up play! Imagine being able to take the hovercraft on virtually every area of the course – eliminating the need for “cart path-only” golf, and all the back-and-forth when a golfer realizes they need a different club. Or, how about retrieving that brand new, hit-only-once-off-the-tee Pro V1 that found the center of the water hazard? The possibilities are awesome.
Interesting to note that there is an Oakley logo on the hovercraft. I’d assume there is some level of sponsorship/funding coming from Oakley. I would love to see this cart come to market. What do you think?
