Jetpacks Travel In The Golf Court Could Be The Game’s Future


08/23/2016


Watson flies over golf court for the first time ever with a jetpack.



Bubba Watson, the sixth best golfer in the world, in partnership with a company based out of New Zealand, plan on giving caddies a retirement break, whereby introducing the “world's first golf jetpack”.
 
Jetpack could be used to travel around the golf course, whereby Watson executed the stunt in celebration of “golf's return to the Olympics” over a century later. Reuters reports:
“The vehicle is a customised version of the petrol-powered Martin Jetpack P12, which has undergone thousands of hours of tests. The updated rotary engine P14 model goes on sale later this year, reportedly for $200,000. It will fly for up to 30 minutes at a top speed of 74 kilometres per hour, and altitudes reaching 1000 metres”.
 
The primary aim of the jetpack is to make emergency respond, rescue and search missions more efficient and fast. However, Watson adds that “an aerial golf buggie would be a perfect way to get his bag and equipment around the course”.
 
According to him, the fairway view from the air allows a “new perspective” which can help him to plan his upcoming shot. Olympics golf “landed in the rough” as many star golfers came out. Nevertheless, the jetpacks replacing the carts at golf ground could be the way to generate “sky high” interest for the game, thinks Watson.
