Under Armour Announces Open Championship Scripting for Jordan Spieth

BALTIMORE, MD – “The best defense is a good offense” is a common mantra in team sports, an idea based around firepower and scoring to keep an opponent at bay. Jordan Spieth is made to score, and ready to adopt that mantra in his own way – using every offensive weapon in his arsenal to defend the Claret Jug and his 2017 Open Championship title.

Doing so means facing the wild and unpredictable conditions that make the Open Championship famous, especially this year, at the legendary Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland. Always exposed to the elements of the North Sea, anything can happen at Carnoustie – pouring rain, biting wind and scalding heat are all on the table, and to defend his championship, Jordan, with help from Under Armour, is coming prepared to eliminate the elements.

Ensuring the journey is comfortable, Jordan will walk the course in the waterproof and super-durable Spieth 2 footwear. Jordan’s apparel scripting for the week includes ultra-breathable UA Threadborne polos with 30+ UPF protection, and water-resistant UA Storm technology pullovers.

When asked why layering matters – and why the UA Storm Daytona is a favorite – Jordan said, “not only is it going to be water resistant but it’s going to keep me warm while at the same time it’s actually breathable – I don’t really know how that is possible or how they do it but that’s not my job. My job is to perform on the golf course and this piece helps me do that.”

Streamsong® Black Selected as Best New Clubhouse of the Year by Golf Inc. Magazine

STREAMSONG, FL – Streamsong® Resort is pleased to announce that the Streamsong Black Clubhouse has been named the best new Clubhouse of the Year by Golf Inc. This is the second award that Streamsong has received from Golf Inc. this year. Earlier this year, Streamsong Black was awarded the Best New Golf Development of the Year in the publication’s March/April issue, which opened at the same time as the Streamsong Black Clubhouse in September 2017.

The judges evaluated the entries on four criteria: efficiency, aesthetics, vision, and sustainability. The panelists looked at how well a floor plan maximizes available space, how visually appealing and congruent the design is to its surrounding area, the mission of its developer, and how the clubhouse conserves energy and water to ensure an environmentally sustainable building. Mark Melzer, chairman of Melzer Deckert & Ruder Architects as well as a judge for this year’s competition described the new clubhouse for “the minimal structure [that] allows an all-glass wall system, which celebrates the panoramic natural views. The resort is a facility primarily used for dining and bar activity while taking in the views – for golf purists only.”

The Streamsong Black clubhouse is 7,643 square feet.  It includes the resort’s newest dining experience, Bone Valley Tavern, a separate bar, and men’s and women’s locker rooms. Architect Alberto Alfonso of Alfonso Architects designed the new clubhouse. Alfonso Architects also designed the Lodge and the clubhouse on Streamsong Red and Streamsong Blue.

Since opening in January 2013, all three of Streamsong’s golf courses–Streamsong Red, Streamsong Blue, and Streamsong Black, have received numerous accolades throughout the golf industry, including Golfweek’s “Best Modern Courses” and “Best Resort Courses,” as well as Golf Digest’s “100 Greatest Public Courses.”
