“The professional tours played in locations around the globe this weekend, and one consistent result was that every tournament winner wore cleated footwear,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “There is no substitute for the solid swing foundation created by cleated footwear, no matter where in the world you play golf.”

On the PGA Tour, the Waste Management Open winner rallied from a two-shot deficit to win in a playoff while wearing FootJoy® Icon shoes with Softspikes® Pulsar cleats. On the European Tour, the winner of the Saudi International chose ASICS® footwear with Champ® Stinger replaceable cleats.

At the Morocco Champions Tour event, the winner wore FootJoy® Fury shoes with Pulsar cleats. On the Korn Ferry Tour, the winner of the Panama Championship wore FootJoy® Icon with Pulsar 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.
