All the Gear: Under Armour get in early with Spieth Masters scriptingMarch 24, 2017 Golf Equipment
Equipment editor James Savage gives his weekly round-up from the world of golf equipment.
We had a visit from the guys at Cobra this week to fit four lucky readers into some of their 2017 gear.
And on the first day of spring too. There were joyous scenes as we made our way to the Golf Shack. Then it started snowing.
Anyway enough moaning about the weather. Our four readers had a fantastic day, really enjoyed the Cobra gear and we even got to see the clubs being built at the brand’s impressive factory in Leeds.

We’re used to travelling up and down the country for various events and meetings throughout the year so it was a real treat to have a home fixture.
Here’s a few bits you may have missed over the past week…
Jordan Spieth Masters scripting
Congratulations to Under Armour for being first to reveal what someone will be wearing at the Masters.

This is a good thing. It means the event itself isn’t far away and that’s one less brand we’ll be getting the scripting email from in Masters week.
He’ll obviously be wearing his signature Spieth One shoes. We’ll bring you full details of the Under Armour SS17 collection next week.
