It's been a long time since anyone added an innovation to the standard golf cart, but the cart being driven by Bubba Watson in a recent promotional video would certainly change that. Footage of the 34-year-old golfer riding around in a hovercraft golf cart has caused quite a stir if only because, if the cart is real, it's pretty damn cool.

In the video, Watson is shown driving the cart across the fairway, through a water hazard, and more. The cart has a footprint "33 times lighter than the human foot," the craft's designer says, meaning it won't tear up the course. While probably not an affordable innovation, it's a pretty sweet one.
