Professional golfer Bubba Watson is working on a prototype for a new hovercraft golf cart.

Watson, who has six wins since joining the PGA Tour in 2003, is working with Oakley on the BW1 prototype.

A clip of Watson using the BW1 during a round of golf has made its on YouTube filed under the name "BubbasHover." The video received more than 1.2 million views on April 2, the day it was posted on the video sharing site.

The description of the video is posted below:

"Golf carts haven't changed much over the years. They look and feel the same. What if there was a way to improve the traditional golf cart concept and take away some of the limitations? That is what Bubba Watson and Oakley set out to do. They created the world's first hovercraft golf cart. Using hovercraft technology, the BW1 is able to glide over any terrain, including grass, sand, and water."

The 2012 Masters champion says in addition to being able to zoom over water and in and out of sand traps without fear of getting stuck, driving the vehicle is just plain fun.
