It looks like a belated April Fools’ Day prank, but this video showing a golf cart hovercraft from reigning Masters champion Bubba Watson and Oakley appears to be the real deal.

“Let’s go through the water hazard, come off the other side right back by the green, putt your ball in the hole, and drive back across the water hazard,” Watson says in the video. “And who doesn’t want to do that?”
