The larger question is
Where can I get self driving Golf Clubs?
I read they're coming next, now that they've finished the self-driving screws.


But who needs them, anyway, since most golf club sets come with their own drivers.
I heard that Amazon is coming out with a new Alexa for the golf bag, you just have to ask it which club to use, taking out all the thinking required to play the game.  Now not only do you not have to think at home, but you won't have to think at play either. 
Next the water proof version, "no, not that wave, wait for the next one", you just have to stick it to the deck of your board.
It takes a quiver to do that.

I'll take one. I'm constantly going for the first wave in a set. knowing that if I miss it, I'm gonna get slammed. Alexa would say--"Hey, stupid. Take the third wave. It's a three wave set, no one will be in position for number three." And then I'd go for the first wave anyway.

I'm not much of a golfer, but I cringe when someone in my foursome shouts out the yardage from a GPS.  Somehow it didn't bother me pre-GPS when someone would pull out an optical rage finder.  Judging the distance, wind, etc. is a big part of the game for me.  I suppose buying new gadgets is a big part of golf for others.

If I had Alexa talking me through a prone surf session, I would probably hear, "a little late popping up again!" ;D

Not self driving and not a car ...but Jeff Bezos is definitely auditioning for the part of the super villain in the next 007 flick.
