2019-20 PGA Tour Kicks Off with A Win for Cleated Footwear
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Sept. 16, 2019 – The new PGA Tour season kicked off just like last season ended, with a player claiming victory in replaceable cleats. The 20-year-old, first-time winner on the PGA Tour posted a six-stroke victory at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier wearing adidas® Tour 360 footwear with Thintech XP replaceable cleats. On the final leaderboard, 18 of the top 23 finishers wore replaceable cleats from PrideSports® brands Softspikes® and Champ®.
“We’re off and running on a new PGA Tour season, and another young player has earned a career-defining victory wearing replaceable cleats,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “The stability, traction and control provided by cleated footwear makes a difference, and the leaderboards each weekend continue to prove it.”
On the other professional tours, the winner of the European Tour’s KLM Open wore adidas® Adipower 4orged footwear with Thintech EXP cleats, and the winner of the Champions Tour Ally Challenge claimed victory in FootJoy® Tour S shoes with Softspikes® Cyclone replaceable cleats.
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.
