The Future of Golf – Bubba’s Jetpack

Posted By on July 22, 2016

I personally don’t ever want to play golf. For years it’s been the bastion of white male middle and upper-management brokering deals and talking about their stock investments. These are not my people.

But, what if you could jet around from place to place and use huge expanses as your course? What if the radical take over?

A project by Bubba Watson and Oakley, called Bubba’s Jetpack, provides the world’s first golf cart jetpack. And, it looks super-fun.

In all likelihood, with these breakthroughs I think golf will likely die and the game will transform into air-tag and the clubs will be used to joust. Now, I could get on board with that for the Olympics.
