Some might say that golf is the most boring sport in the world - especially if you're watching it on television; seeing people try their best to get a ball into 18 different holes.

There are others though, like golfing fanatic John Imrie, who has taken the game to a different level - literally.

Roof-top inspiration

According to Birmingham Mail, the 27-year-old from Northumberland and his friend Kurt Hill took a road trip in a bid to find places to do some good old-fashioned golfing. This led them to do something out of the ordinary.

Upon returning from the road trip the duo then covered a Daihatsu Charade, nicknamed 'El Slice', with artificial turf on the roof and bonnet to make their very own 'on the go' golfing course.

The car cost around R9 000 (£400) with the intention of being a car just for road trips.

Now, instead of driving around having to look for cool places to play golf, John can simply park the car on a particular spot and start swinging away. It even has its own flag and different-sized ball pins on the roof.

You have to spare a thought for the car as the roof is takes a beating whenever the duo decides to step up and pay some golf.
