Watch Bubba Watson Fly Over a Golf Course in a Jetpack

Bubba Watson is promoting jetpacks as a way to speed up the game of golf, and he says the bird's eye view it offers is 'almost an unfair advantage.'

Bubba Watson is changing the way golf is played by flying around in a jetpack that looks like it's straight out of Back To The Future.

Watson, a two-time major championship winner, teamed up with Oakley to make a jetpack in hopes of speeding up golf.

"Golf is always looking to speed up play and that's what the jetpack is going to do," Watson said in a promotional video. "The jetpack is going to make the rounds faster, more fun."

The jetpack has a 200-horsepower engine, and it can fly up to 50 mph and up to 3,000 feet.

Watson says the biggest advantage of the jetpack is the bird's eye view it offers. With the jetpack, golfers will be able to survey courses and analyze how best to play them.

"It's almost an unfair advantage," Watson said. "This is a game changer."

The jetpack is being tested ahead of the 2016 Rio Olympics, and Watson is leading the charge in revolutionary technology for the sport. In 2013, he sported a hovercraft that functioned like a golf cart.
