Jordan Spieth took 13,541 steps during the final round of the Open Championship at Royal Troon. Though he finished T30, the two-time Major champ made his way around in style, debuting a "smart" pair of golf shoes custom-made by Under Armour.

Spieth's new kicks consist of the company's Drive One golf shoe with the built-in sensor technology used in its recently launched SpeedForm Gemini 2 Record Equipped running shoe. The sensor, with a battery life designed to outlast the shoes under typical wear and tear, relays data to a smartphone with the UA Record app, including total steps, distance and speed.

Off the course, Jordan has been wearing a UA Band paired with the fitness app to capture his sleep, activity, daily steps and nutrition. According to John Kell at Fortune magazine, Spieth shoots to sleep at least eight hours every night and eat "whole, real foods" as much as possible.

There are no plans at this time to sell the sensor-equipped Drive One shoe at retail.
