Jet-powered golf cart - Click above to watch video after the jump

There are plenty of fine reasons to play golf. Everyone needs an excuse to get outside and stretch their legs, and smacking the life out of a little white ball is a socially acceptable way to relieve stress with a club. But for many of us, the only reason to get on the green is to get behind the wheel of a golf cart. Our short game may be the living definition of embarrassing, but we'd like to imagine we could execute a fine handbrake turn behind the wheel of an electric rental.

If that's not entertaining enough to wet your whistle, you can always add the thrill of a turbine engine to the mix. We're not exactly sure where the gentleman in the video after the jump got the idea to strap a small jet engine to the back of his custom golf cart, but we like where his head's at. Odds are the other players may have a small problem with the racket that his contraption makes, but that's their problem, right?. Hit the jump to check it out.

      I'd love to see that show up at one of The Villages, Florida town squares some night. Anybody who's been to The Villages know what I'm talking about.

      I'd have to put this on the same level as the motorized bar stool, racing lawnmowers, and motorized cooler. All are completely pointless, absolutely useless (except maybe the cooler), impractical, but insanely cool. It'd probably be a blast to have this guy as your neighbor!
