Would you use this golf JETPACK if you could?

A jetpack would certainly be one way of speeding up pace of play on the golf course...

Would you use this golf JETPACK if you could?

Pace of play has been a hot topic of discussion in golf for years and we've seen all kinds of inventions that aim to help golfers play their rounds a little faster, but imagine playing a round of golf and seeing someone flying a jetpack across the fairways...

The jetpack was built by Oakley, who typically makes sunglasses, hats, apparel and other accessories, so you could say the brand has gone a little outside the box with this one.

If you're looking for a speedy round of golf, technology has come a long way since using an ordinary golf cart and we now have different ways of travelling around a golf course, such as the standing Golf Boards and more recently the motorcycles built for the fairways such as the Finn Cycle.

Now rounds of golf can be pretty quick these days, but imagine how quickly you'd play a round in a jetpack that can go over land and water. Check out the Oakley jetpack in the video below:

"Just give me a golf cart. I can’t land this thing where I hit my balls," replied one golf fan.

"Golf carts already pose a formidable challenge with booze. This thing? Courses will have to hang one of those 'x number of days since accidental hover death'," joked another (although he makes a valid point, I wouldn't fancy flying a jet pack after a couple of beers).

"You can tell a woman came up with this idea because no man wants to shorten his time on the course," said another golf lover.
