PrideSports’ replaceable spikes used by winners on PGA, Korn Ferry and European tours

Softspikes and Champs products deliver victories

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., October 6, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners from this past weekend’s PGA TOUR, Korn Ferry Tour and European Tour events all relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes® and Champ®.

Capturing his first PGA TOUR win since 2017, the legendary 40-year-old Spaniard secured an emotional one-shot victory with a birdie on the final hole at the Sanderson Farms Championship, contested at the Country Club of Jackson. To ensure optimum traction, he trusts PINS Thintech Hybrid Metal spikes in his Adidas Tour 360 shoes.

Continuing the trend of the best players in the world choosing replaceable cleats, this week’s Korn Ferry Tour winner at the Savannah Golf Championship used Pivix from Softspikes® in his Asics Gel-Course DUO shoes. In Europe, the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open champion opted for the Zarma Tour spikes in his Ecco Golf Strike shoes.

“Winning at this level takes remarkable skill and confidence, and with our spikes golfers know they’ll have the stability to execute any shot on the course,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports/MacNeill-Pride Group.

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.
