What is the GolfBoard?
The GolfBoard is the most innovative addition to golf since the graphite shaft, bringing modern technology to a traditional game.
The GolfBoard will change the way you experience the game of golf.
The easy to ride electric board makes getting from one shot to the next just as fun as hitting a great drive or approach shot.
The GolfBoard speeds up the game, is easy and intuitive for everyone to ride, has less impact on a course than a golf cart, and allows golfers to surf the golf course in a way that feels similar to snowboarding, surfing or skateboarding.

What do you get when you combine Rory McIlroy, Wayne Rooney, a game of golf, a Bing Crosby classic and a cameo from the original Ronaldo?

The answer is a great new ad from Nike. Mind you, we shouldn't expect anything less from the madcap marketing folks at Nike should we?

Their latest endeavour pits none other than former world number one golfer and latest mulit-millionaire in the Nike stable, Rory McIlroy, against England international footballer (soccer - for those so inclined) Wayne Rooney.

Turns out the video is so bad…that it’s great.



FTF Video: A Little Magic From The European Tour

The term 'he's like a magician on the golf course' has been used for some of the great shotmakers like Seve Ballesteros, Phil Mickelson and of course Tiger Woods.

And let's face it, at some point or other just about every professional golfer out there has some pretty neat tricks up their sleeves when it comes to getting out of trouble or saving a par from a situation that most of the rest of us would be building into at least a 'snowman' ....or worse.

The PGA Tour has used the motto 'These Guys Are Good' for a few years now with very good reason, and the European Tour does a great job of promoting the quality of the players on its tour with some extremely well produced videos. This one is no exception.
