With all four majors of the season behind us, the focus of the golf world turns to pride for country with the Olympics this month and the Ryder Cup in September.

For someone like Bubba Watson, that means a lot of time representing the red, white, and blue. And the man that brought us the golf cart hovercraft and then the golf cart jetpack wasn't going to simply let that opportunity pass by without some extravagent something.

That something was revealed to us on Bubba's Twitter page.

The trend of high-top golf shoes has been going around recently, seen on such players as Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy. But I don't think it's ever been done quite like this.

With these walking American flags on his feet, Bubba Watson is going to be hard to miss at the Olympics in Rio.
