If you’ve ever rushed to get nine holes in before dark, this golf cart could prove to be a lifesaver.
‘Bubba’s Jetpack,’ as it’s affectionately known, is a golf cart jetpack designed for PGA Masters champion Bubba Watson. The jetpack, a marketing tool from viral video agency Thinkmodo and Oakley is capable of flight up to 3,000 feet while traveling 45 miles per hour. It also gets a cool 19 miles on a single tank of gas, great for those long courses.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Watson, it seems, gets all of the cool toys as aside from this jetpack golf cart he was once piloting another rather fancy golf cart — a hovercraft. Some guys have all the fun.
While used as a promotional tool these days, the jetpack is actually set to go into production in late 2016/early 2017 as a tool to better serve first-responders. The pricing information is still to be determined, but don’t be surprised if you see one of these things zipping around your local course in the next few years.
