Bubba Watson’s new golf cart isn’t a hovercraft, but it is high end and made just for him. The long left-hander, who owns the original General Lee, the car used in “The Dukes of Hazzard” TV show, tweeted a photo of himself with his new ride, and as John Holmes of pga.com reports, it’s no economy model.
Garia is a high-end golf cart maker, and says its carts are made in the same factory where the Porsche Boxster and Cayman were produced. Judging by the photo, Bubba’s new ride is a Garia LSV model, which has a maximum speed of 25 mph and a maximum range of 40 miles, and is made to be street legal in many jurisdictions. Among its options are a refrigerator and a stereo system.
And if Garia sounds familiar to you, it might be because Paula Creamer got one in the summer of 2012. The seatbacks on hers are festooned with the ”Pink Panther” logo. Bubba’s seatbacks say ”BubbaGolf” on them.
No word yet on whether the Garia can launch itself off a well-placed pile of dirt and soar 40 feet over a hapless Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane and his faithful basset hound, Flash.
