Jordan Spieth's incredible Masters victory on Sunday not only resoundingly announced the arrival of golf's newest young gun, it also highlighted the bitter rivalry of two of the world's biggest sports apparel makers, Under Armour and Nike.
Throughout the four-day tournament at the storied Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, the 21-year-old Spieth was clad head to toe in logos for Under Armour, which had originally signed him in 2013. In January, he agreed to a 10-year sponsorship contract extension.
Spieth said on Tuesday he's very happy with Under Armour and his other sponsors. "This is what they expect of me. It's not like this [Masters win] should really change much. They took a chance. They've put their investment in to me to be wearing this jacket," referring to the iconic green jacket given to Masters champions in addition to the prize money, which was $1.8 million to the winner this year.

"It's not like this is a different level than they want to see," he told "Squawk Box" in an interview. "I feel like I'm doing what I'm supposed to do for them."
