TaylorMade is on a mission to open up the game of golf to more players and expand the sport. As part of that effort, the company introduces the 15-inch hole golf course. A very interesting way to broaden the game, these larger holes allow for faster play and more exciting times to be had by all. More birdies, eagles, chip-ins, hole-outs, and probably some more aces. As TaylorMade says, it’s not to change the game completely, but to be additive to what the Tour pros play and make it easier and more fun for people to start playing golf. All for that. The Delofted folks will definitely give it a try.
Red Bull heads down to Dallas, Texas, and teams up Rickie Fowler and fellow PGA Tour pro Colt Knost in a head-to-head battle. The two see who could get closest to the pin on a custom-built, Texas-shaped green in Victory Plaza, near the American Airlines arena. The victory swing comes down to the final shot – over a building, blind with an imminent weather advisory. Didn’t we see this in a McDonald’s basketball commercial back in the day?

Leave it to Bubba Watson to test out hovercraft technology in golf carts. We all know golf carts haven’t changed much over the years. Well, Bubba Watson and Oakley set out to change that and created the world’s first hovercraft golf cart.

My goodness. That’s all we can say after watching the follow-up video starring Ben Crane, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, and Hunter Mahan. As the PGA says, “those guys are good.” Hilarious.

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.
