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

Touring professionals win with Softspikes' Pivix, Pulsar and Silver Tornado models on their footwear

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., October 13, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners from this past weekend’s PGA TOUR, Korn Ferry Tour and PGA Tour Champions events all relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes® and CHAMP®.

Capturing his fourth PGA TOUR title, the 37-year-old Scotsman secured an exciting playoff victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, contested at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. To ensure optimum traction, he trusted the Pivix® from Softspikes® in his Nike Roshe G shoes.

Continuing the trend of the best players in the world choosing replaceable cleats, this week’s Korn Ferry Tour winner at the Orange County National Championship used Pulsar® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy Fury shoes. At the SAS Championship on the PGA TOUR Champions, the winner opted for the Silver Tornado™ from Softspikes® in his Puma PwrAdapt Caged footwear.

“Regardless of a golfer’s skill level or the conditions of the turf where they play, replaceable cleats will help to provide the traction and stability needed to execute any shot,” 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
