BRENTWOOD, Tenn., November 3, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners at the European Tour’s Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Open and PGA TOUR Champions’ TimberTech Championship relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes®.

Capturing his first European Tour title, the 27-year-old Englishman secured the win in a dramatic playoff victory at Aphrodite Hills Resort in Cyprus. To ensure optimum traction, he trusted the Pivix® from Softspikes® in his Nike Roshie shoes.

At the TimberTech Championship, the winner recorded the first PGA Tour Champions title in his famed career with a one-shot victory at the Old Course at Broken Sound Club in Boca Raton. He used the popular Pulsar® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy Icon shoes.

“Traction is an incredibly important part of a golfer playing their best, at all levels of the game. With our spikes, players can have the confidence to pull off any shot, regardless of conditions,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports/MacNeill-Pride Group.
