CLEATED FOOTWEAR RULES THE PROFESSIONAL CIRCUITS
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., May 14, 2019 – The winners on the professional golf tours all had one thing in common over the weekend – they were wearing footwear featuring Champ® cleats in their victories. These included the winners of the:
PGA TOUR AT&T Byron Nelson wearing Footjoy® ICON shoes with Champ Pro Stinger
European Tour British Masters wearing Nike® React Vapor 2 shoes with Champ Pivix cleats
PGA Tour Champions Regions Tradition wearing Footjoy DryJoys with Champ Pro Stinger cleats
Web.com KC Golf Classic wearing Nike Tour Premiere shoes with Champ Zarma cleats
“With weather causing delays at tournaments, traction was a major factor for the players on the various tours over the weekend,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports®. “Despite rain and other tough conditions, the winners of the four major men’s events shot an astounding combined 68-under par. That’s a true testament to the value of cleated footwear.”
At the AT&T Byron Nelson, 23 of the top 28 finishers chose replaceable cleat technology over spikeless/tennis shoes.
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.
