You like golf and you like cars? Then watch Formula 1 legend David Coulthard and pro-golfer Jake Shepherd set a new Guinness world record – farthest golf shot caught in a moving car – with the dopest looking prop on the planet: the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. This gorgeous whip boasts a V8 with 583 ponies under the hood. On the second swing, the car caught the ball 275 meters away from the tee, after being launched in the air by Shepherd. Looks like the stunt was sponsored by Benz and Callaway, although seems like Shepherd uses a TaylorMade driver. The whole thing was was verified by Guinness World Records.

Nike introduces the Nike Free-inspired Tiger Woods 2013 spikes. The natural motion engineered outsole is designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, coupled with the protection and traction of a lightweight performance golf shoe. This innovative outsole allows the athlete to keep contact with the ground longer, better harnessing the energy of the foot to the shoe and, therefore, the shoe to the ground. The shoes also feature the new Dynamic Fit support system and flywire-infused nylon straps that extend 360° from the footbed to the lacing system. Can’t get more secure footing and adaptive fit than that!

Legendary Italian carmarker Ferrari partners up with Cobra and releases their line of metalwoods and bags. So now, if you can’t afford the cool quarter-million dollar price tag for the famous cars, at least you can swing a club like the owner would. PGA Tour pro Ian Poulter is the brand’s poster boy for the project. The redheaded golf driver, which uses Cobra’s ZL technology along with new aerodynamics, comes in at $2,000, while the bag runs even more at $2,400. But the leather cart bag will be made from the same supple leather used in the Ferrari GT seats. All the Ferrari x Cobra gear drops in July, including other accessories like $120 polo shirts and $250 jackets patterned after the interior of a Ferrari. Puma is also expected to launch some Ferrari golf shoes too, which will set you back about $600 bones. All I gotta say is, dope.
