05:47 PM ET 04.02 | 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 Fool's 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 its way over the water hazards. Sure enough, Watson and Oakley came up with an incredible hovercraft golf cart that has blown our minds. FanSided.com has a video of Watson's hovercraft golf cart in action. You won't want to miss this one.

Gotta say it looks pretty sweet.

Hovercraft are pretty cool. My ex father in law used to sell them in South Florida and I got to test drive a couple of them.

Thanks for posting the video! Makes me want to ask business and engineering questions about its practicality. What is its cost? Does it need to follow the cart-path-only rule? Can it even go on cart paths without causing damage? Does it cause damage to fairways? Will golf courses allow owners to bring them to the course (assuming the course is not renting them to golfers)? Can it be used to get around golf communities, similar to today's carts, go to a neighbor's, or to a store? What is the noise level? I am sure these come with all the ammenities, GPS, coolers, divot mix, heaters, radios
