Cleats win 4 times on pro tours

Golfers on PGA, Korn Ferry, Asian and LPGA tours claim victories in cleated footwear

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., January 20, 2020 – Cleated footwear picked up four more victories around the globe this week as the world’s best players continue to experience the advantages of replaceable cleat technology from PrideSports® brands Softspikes® and Champ®. Winners on the PGA Tour, Korn Ferry Tour, Asian Tour and LPGA Tour all chose cleats over spikeless footwear.

“The traction, stability and control provided by cleated footwear absolutely makes a difference in the golf swing,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “It shows week after week on leaderboards across the professional tours.”

The winner at the PGA Tour’s The American Express picked up his second career victory wearing FootJoy® Icon footwear with Champ® Pro Stinger replaceable cleats. On the Korn Ferry Tour, the winner of The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic chose Callaway Balboa TRX footwear with Champ® Pivix cleats.

Champ's Zarma Tour cleat

On the Asian Tour, the winner of the SMBC Singapore Open wore Skechers® Go Golf Pro V4 shoes with Softspikes® PINS and Champ® Zarma replaceable cleats. At the LPGA Tour’s Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions, the winner wore adidas® Response footwear with ThinTech replaceable cleats.

Replacement Softspikes® and Champ® cleats can be purchased in the golf section of most large retailers, sporting goods stores, golf specialty and golf course pro shops across the country. Cleats can also be purchased online from any of these locations, your favorite online store or directly from www.golfspikes.com.

PrideSports is the undisputed leader in the golf cleat segment with its CHAMP® and Softspikes® brands. The company recommends golfers change their cleats every six to eight months – or even more frequently based on use – to ensure golfers get the maximum performance out of their footwear.

CHAMP’s Helix®, Zarma Tour® and Stinger® cleats, as well as Softspikes’ Pivix®, Pulsar®, Silver Tornado® and Stealth® cleats, dominate the OEM and secondary market in terms of performance and sales. More information can be found at www.champspikes.com and www.Softspikes.com.
