Replaceable spikes from PrideSports used by winners on European Tour, PGA Tour Champions

Softspikes' Silver Tornado and Pulsar cleats carry players to victories

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., November 11, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners at the European Tour’s Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Showdown and Charles Schwab Cup Championship relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes®.

Capturing his first European Tour title, the 24-year-old Scotsman secured a one-shot victory at Aphrodite Hills Resort in Cyprus. To ensure optimum traction, he trusted the Silver Tornado® from Softspikes® in his Nike React Vapor 2 shoes.

At the PGA TOUR Champions’ Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the 56-year-old winner recorded a dramatic playoff victory at the Phoenix Country Club in Arizona. He used the popular Pulsar® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy Hyperflex 2.0 shoes.

“Players all over the world, regardless of the type of turf they are competing on, trust our replaceable spikes to ensure optimum consistency, control and distance,” 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.
