Jordan Spieth pulled off one of the most remarkable finishes in Open history to claim victory at Royal Birkdale in the 146th edition of the tournament on Sunday.
The American finished three shots ahead of countryman Matt Kuchar after a run of birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie before making par at the final hole to clinch the win – having sacrificed a three-shot overnight lead earlier on.
But does he have a secret weapon to thank for his incredible powers of recovery?

Six days before lifting the Claret Jug, Spieth posted an image on Instagram revealing he’d slept well after making the flight over from America because he’d worn a set of Under Armour’s ‘Athlete Recovery Sleepwear’ pyjamas.
The sleepwear is inspired by New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady, who worked with the American firm to help develop a range of athlete recovery products.

The sleepwear retails at around £76 ($100) and was inspired by quarterback Tom Brady

HOW DOES UNDER ARMOUR’S RECOVERY SLEEPWEAR WORK?
– The print technology on the inside reflects Far Infrared, which helps your body recover faster & promotes better sleep
– Super soft modal fabric for complete comfort
– 4-way stretch construction moves better in every direction
– Material wicks sweat & dries fast
The eventual winner captioned the image with: ‘Good night from the UK! Great day of practice today. Thanks Under Armour for putting the Athlete Recovery Sleepwear in my kit… felt great this morning after the long flight.’
Under Armour claims that the pyjamas help the body recover faster & promotes better sleep – meaning Spieth would be in tip-top shape come the first tee at The Open.
But how do they work? According to the sportswear firm, they utilise the power of Far Infrared; a type of energy on the infrared spectrum that reportedly has ‘several benefits for the human body.’
In 2015 Spieth penned a 10-year multi-million dollar deal with Under Armour, joining the likes of Brady, Steph Curry, and Memphis Depay.
