Another win for cleats at the Travelers Championship

The footwear of choice for the Travelers Championship winner was the Adidas Tour 360 Primeknit shoes with Adidas ThinTech cleats

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 29, 2020 – After an exciting week at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn., one of the world’s best came from behind to claim the victory. A different player may win every week out on the PGA Tour but what remains consistent is that the winners wear cleats. PrideSports® brands Softspikes® and Champ® produce the replaceable traction needed to compete at the highest level.

“After a slow start at the Travelers Championship, the current world number three was able to move up the leaderboard and solidify himself as one of the world’s best,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports/MacNeill-Pride Group. “He was able to maintain his composure and execute the shots required to get his 21st PGA Tour victory. It is always exciting to see our products perform to the highest level and help the world’s best players accomplish their goals.”

The footwear of choice for the Travelers Championship winner was the Adidas Tour 360 Primeknit shoes with Adidas ThinTech 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
