â€¢ Bubba Watson to use green Volvik ball at The Masters
â€¢ The two-time winner will also wear green glove and shoes
â€¢ He will also have a new putter in play at Augusta National
As part of his multi-year agreement with South Korean ball manufacturer Volvik, the American will play a green ball at some stage during The Masters having largely played the pink one so far on the PGA Tour this season.
â€œThe profile of Bubba playing the Green Volvik S4 coloured ball at Augusta will be massive for the Volvik brand and we anticipate a lot of interest in our colourful range of performance balls from golfers of all abilities across Europe,â€ said Jason Stewart, Volvikâ€™s European manager.
But that isnâ€™t the only bit of Bubba Watson gear news we know for the first major of the year.
Yesterday, the world No.18 shared a picture on Twitter of a new Ping Anser-style putter with the hashtag #DamascusSteel.

That steel is the same material used to make samurai swords and is known for its distinctive patterns of that looks like the flowing of water.
Itâ€™s maybe time for a putter change too for Watson, as he is currently ranked No.192 in Strokes Gained: Putting on the PGA Tour so far this season.
And even that isnâ€™t all the green.
Watsonâ€™s shoe and glove sponsor, G/Fore, shared this picture of what heâ€™ll be wearing on his feet and right hand next week.
