BRENTWOOD, Tenn., January 10, 2022 – PrideSports confirms the winner of the PGA Tour’s Sentry Tournament of Champions relied on a combination of the company’s Pulsar® and Metal Stinger® spikes in his FootJoy shoes en route to setting a new PGA Tour scoring record for a single tournament.
Capturing his fourth Tour title, the 28-year-old Australian had a final score of 34-under-par at the Plantation Course at Kapalua on the island of Maui. With the win, he moved into the top-10 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Beyond the winner, 29 of the 38 competitors in the field – consisting of only players who captured Tour wins in 2021 – chose shoes with replaceable spikes over spikeless alternatives.
In 2021, replaceable spikes from PrideSports were used by the winners of 32 PGA Tour events, including three of the four Major Championships, as well as the Olympics and the majority competitors on both sides of the Ryder Cup. Similar product usage stats are true of the LPGA Tour, DP World Tour, PGA Tour Champions and Korn Ferry Tour.
“The Sentry is always a great way to kick-off the year, and it is no surprise that our spikes were trusted by the record-breaking winner and vast majority of the field, which is one of the strongest in golf,” 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.
