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

RSM Classic winner plays in Softspikes' Cyclone model, and the Joburg Open champion uses Softspikes' Pulsar model

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., November 24, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners from this past weekend’s PGA TOUR and European Tour events relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes® and CHAMP®.

Capturing his second PGA TOUR title, the 33-year-old secured an exciting playoff victory at The RSM Classic, contested at Sea Island Resort. To ensure optimum traction, he trusted the Cyclone® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy DryJoy Tour shoes. The runner-up also utilized replaceable spikes, opting for the Pulsar from Softspikes®.

Continuing the trend of the best players in the world relying on cleats from Softspikes® or CHAMP®, the winner of the European Tour’s Joburg Open used Pulsar® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy Fury shoes.

“The best golfers on the globe realize that replaceable cleats provide the ideal platform to create 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 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.
