It's finally Masters week! So if it's green and covered in azaleas, Hannah Holden is all over it
Masters week is finally here and that means lots of new Augusta-themed gear to salivate over. If you like green and floral patterns, you’re in the right place.
Are you ready? Come on we’ve been waiting all year for this…
Limited edition Masters gear: TaylorMade
Rory has a special edition TaylorMade golf ball ready as he tries to claim the Grand Slam this week.
Why a peach stamp? Georgia’s state fruit is the peach, of course! (Yes, states have a fruit.)
Anyone lucky enough to have been to the Masters will have had one of Augusta’s renowned Georgia Peach ice cream sandwiches.
Unfortunately for UK-based peach fanatics, these are only available in the US.
Masters equipment: Puma
DeChambeau, Fowler and Woodland will all be looking to add to Puma’s major tally as they tee it up this week. They will all be wearing pieces from Puma’s Experience collection that take inspiration from the flora surrounding Amen Corner.
The head-to-toe collection includes everything you could need in terms of apparel as well as footwear and a limited edition tour bag. I love the theme and detailing here and think the Azaleas, White Dogwoods and Golden Bells give really unique patterns across the range.
RRP: From £20

Limited edition Masters gear: Callaway
The Masters limited edition bags are always the best of the year.
I love the green and pink colour contrasts here and the strong green stripes contrast with the soft floral accents. Given the time of year these might be the only azaleas we see on our screens at Augusta.
Limited edition Masters gear: Cobra
Cobra’s limited edition MIM wedges feature a unique floral pattern that takes inspiration from Augusta’s famous three-hole stretch – Amen Corner.
I really like how the floral colours contrast with the copper wedge finish here.
This limited edition model is only available in 56° – and you’ll have to be quick.

Limited edition Masters gear: Titleist
Okay, how cool is this wedge?! Courtesy of Bernd Wiesberger and Aaron Dill this unique stamped design celebrates the yearly tradition of players attempting to skip balls across the lake on the 16th at Augusta.
10/10 for creativity on this one.
More from Aaron Dill:
- ‘Some players may use a wedge for a year, some change every two weeks’

Limited edition Masters gear: Ecco
Henrik Stenson and Erik van Rooyen will be teeing it up in special edition shoes this week as Ecco unveils a twist to their latest S-Three shoe offering.
The shoe features a custom-designed green collar and unique midsole colouring to mark the occasion.

Also from Ecco are a celabratory version of their popular Street model, a decade on from Fred Couples unveiling the revolutionary hybrid shoes at the 2010 Masters.
The original Golf Street shoe was born from the simple notion that a golf shoe can be so much more than just a golf shoe. The hybrid sole allowed the shoe to be worn both off and on the golf course.
The Ecco Golf Street 10 stays true to the original design while combining a set of contemporary features such as the dynamic traction system on the sole and an all new midsole material for dynamic comfort. The shoes have new modern bronze detailing and come with a commemorative shoe box and key ring.
I mean, just look at them!
RRP: £180 (S-Three), £220 (Street)

Limited edition Masters gear: Adidas
Adidas have taken a slightly different route this year with these Low Am shoes.
They take inspiration from the Crow’s Nest at Augusta and the select group of amateurs that get to stay on the property each year.
The Low Am sits in the Adidas Crossknit range and the rich green sock liner needs no explanation, while the tongue design represents the window panes that some of the greatest players in history have looked through before beginning their journeys as professionals. Obviously.
This limited edition footwear also comes in a special box and includes an exclusive dust bag to commemorate the moment.

Keep checking back in throughout the week, because I’ll be updating as things drop on my lap.
