BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Nov. 25, 2019 – The world’s No. 3 player picked up two big wins over the weekend, claiming the DP World Tour Championship and the season-long European Tour championship while wearing replaceable cleat technology from Pridesports brands Softspikes® and Champ®. The victories earned him $5 million in prize money.
“The elite players in the world continue to choose the traction, stability and control provided by cleated footwear,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “This week, one player has five million reasons to be thankful he chose cleated footwear over spikeless shoes.”
The winner’s chosen footwear was adidas® Tour 360 with ThinTech EXP replaceable cleats.
On the PGA Tour, a first-time winner also chose cleated footwear. At the RSM Classic, the victor wore FootJoy® Tour S shoes with Softspikes® Pulsar cleats. On the final leaderboard, 35 of the top 42 players chose cleats 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.
