Whether you ever venture on to a course or not, the golf equipment show in Orlando is spotlighting innovations you might find, well… interesting.
Not that we golfers need anything more to buck us up. After all, Tiger is back on the links today in San Diego, and even if he succumbs to ring rust from his long layoff, I’m sure he will produce a welcome buzz.
This show should get a wow! or two from non-golfers too, though.
Bubba’s jet-pack golf cart, for example. Who wouldn’t want to soar up to 3,000 feet in the air on or off the course? As Bubba Watson (above) observes, it should speed up play – which is one f the issues recreational golfers complain so much about.
Bubba’s flying machine too ambitious for you? How about a motorized, skateboard-style cart from Golfboard (above, right)?
When will they come up, though, with a GPS that finds your ball? Or a floating, motorized ball that automatically swims to shore when you hit it into a water hazard?
Maybe next time.
