JORDAN SPIETH | UNDER ARMOUR
At last week’s Open Championship, Jordan Spieth proved just how helpful golf can be in living an active and healthy lifestyle.
In conjunction with his apparel sponsor Under Armour and the company’s Golf and Connected Fitness teams, the 22-year-old used UA Record – a connected fitness platform – to track his sleep, fitness, daily activity and nutrition as he trains to play.
During the Open, Jordan Spieth wore UA’s first custom, smart golf shoe, which was built from the same foundation as the UA Drive One golf shoe launched in April and houses the same sensor technology that is found in the brand’s first smart shoe – the Speedform Gemini 2 Record Equipped.
Data was collected through an embedded motion sensor within the midsole of the shoe that automatically tracked performance metrics such as distance and steps – a total of 13,541 steps for the complete 18-hole course. Spieth averaged a whopping 13,500 steps per day during the Open, with a total of around 54,000 steps over the course of four days of competition.
The collaboration highlights the innovation in Under Armour footwear and how the company’s key athletes, like Spieth, are continuing to push the envelope when it comes to training and performance.
