Golfer Lexi Thompson showed off a sharp new Nissan GT-R on social media this week.
It wasn’t the first time the LPGA star took to Instagram to show off a sweet ride. In 2015, she announced a partnership with Lexus USA with a nifty red Lexus.
For those who care about such things, Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota.
Plenty of pro golfers have strong rides and are not afraid to show them off. Here is a look at some of golf’s notable car lovers:
An unabashed Ferrari lover and avid car collector, Poulter has long bought and showed off his expensive rides. When this image was shared on Instagram, he had five Ferraris, a Rolls Royce Ghost and Ford GT-40 in his garage.
But he’s always looking for a unique cars.

The Crown Vic in this image reportedly was used to escort Rory McIlroy during the 2012 Ryder Cup after he mixed up time zones and needed a police escort to make his tee time. And it appears as though Poulter put a Ryder Cup logo put on the side to commemorate the occasion.
The 2013 Masters champion is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz. The Aussie star reportedly drives a $500,000 SLS AMG Roadster with the gull-wing doors when he cruises around his native Queensland.
McIlroy was infamously linked to the purchase of a $2 million Bugatti back in 2012. McIlroy denies ever having purchased the multi-million dollar vehicle.
He does, however, own a private jet.

In 2014, he was given the opportunity to drive a BMW i8 during the week of the BMW Championship. At the time, the car was worth around $136,000.

The following year, he actually owned an i8 himself.
Like Poulter, he’s driven several Ferraris since turning pro. He was spotted driving a black Ferrari F430 with then-girl friend Caroline Wozniacki in 2013. The couple was also seen together cruising in a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador, but it was not believed McIlroy owned that card.
This Instagram image offers a peek inside Rickie Fowler’s garage. The car spotlighted in the is a custom Porsche 911 Turbo. He also has a Nissan GT-R visible in the back. Oklahoma State orange colors are a prominent feature on several of his cars.
Fowler is also a brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz, whose products often appear in his Instagram feed
Watson has been a car buff since he was a boy. In 2016, he became co-owner of a Chevrolet dealership in Milton, Fla. “I have purchased 37 cars in 12 years, which I’m not proud of, I guess,” Watson said when he announced his deal to buy part of the dealership.
Waston purchased the General Lee (a 1969 Dodge Charger) used in the 1980s TV show “Dukes of Hazzard” at the 2012 Barrett-Jackson automobile auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. He painted over the Confederate Flag in 2015 that appeared on the roof of the car during the TV series and replaced it with an American flag.
