PrideSports’ replaceable spikes used by winners on PGA and LPGA tours

Winners at the Zozo Championship and the LPGA Drive On Championship wore replaceable cleats from Softspikes

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., October 27, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners from the PGA TOUR’s Zozo Championship and LPGA Tour’s Drive On Championship relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes®.

Capturing his third PGA TOUR title, the 28-year-old secured a one-stroke victory at Sherwood Country Club in Lake Sherwood, California. To ensure optimum traction throughout his powerful swing, he trusted the Cyclone® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy DryJoy shoes. Although he had experimented with spikeless alternatives in recent years, he returned to replaceable cleats and once again found the winner’s circle.

At the Drive On Championship, the winner secured a one-shot victory on the Great Waters Course at Reynolds Lake Oconee.  She used the popular Pulsar® from Softspikes® in her FootJoy DryJoy shoes to help propel her to her first LPGA Tour title.

“With interest in golf on the rise and participation booming, it’s important for golfers of all skill levels to realize the best in the world rely on replaceable cleats to provide the traction needed to play their best,” 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.
