Replaceable spikes from PrideSports used by winners of U.S. Women’s Open, QBE Shootout and DP World Tour Championship

Softspikes and CHAMP cleats carry golfers to victories

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., December 15, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms the winners of the U.S. Women’s Open, QBE Shootout and DP World Tour Championship relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes® and CHAMP®.

Capturing her first major championship victory, the 25-year-old Korean birdied the last three holes during the final round to shoot a 67 and win by one stroke at Champions Golf Club in Houston. To ensure optimum traction, she trusted the Pulsar® from Softspikes® in her FootJoy DryJoy shoes.

At the PGA TOUR’s QBE Shootout, the winners of the two-man team event used the Stealth® and Silver Tornado® from SoftSpikes®, respectively, to take top honors at the Tiburón Golf Course in  Naples,  FL. On the European Tour, the DP World Tour Championship was won by a 26-year-old Englishman who preferred CHAMP® ProStinger™ cleats in his Under Armour shoes.

“We’re closing out 2020 by adding four more champions to the list of players from around the world who realize the immense performance benefits that replaceable spikes add to their games,” 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.
