BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Oct. 14, 2019 – Cleated footwear from PrideSports brands Softpikes® and Champ® gained two more wins on the professional tours over the weekend, one on the feet of a first-time winner on the PGA Tour and another on a six-time winner on the Champions Tour.
“For players who have grinded out a win on Sunday and those experiencing it for the first time, it helps to have the stability, traction and control provided by cleated footwear,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “For players of every age and experience level, cleated footwear makes a difference on the scorecard.”
At the PGA Tour’s Houston Open, the winner grabbed his first career win in FootJoy® Icon Black footwear with Softspikes® Pulsar cleats. On the leaderboard, 15 of the top 20 finishers chose cleats over spikeless shoes.
On the Champions Tour, a veteran player with two wins during the calendar year picked up a third victory in FootJoy® Hyperflex II shoes with Softspikes® Silver Tornado 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. Cleats can also be purchased online from any of these locations, your favorite online store or directly from www.golfspikes.com.
