Softspikes' Cyclone cleat wins on PGA Tour, and the Pulsar model leads to victory on the LPGA
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., December 8, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of the PGA TOUR’s Mayakoba Golf Classic and LPGA Tour’s Volunteers of America Classic relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes®.
Capturing his second PGA TOUR title, the 23-year-old Norwegian secured a one-shot victory at El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. To ensure optimum traction, he trusted the Cyclone® from Softspikes® in his Nike Roshie shoes. Beyond the winner, 32 of the top-36 finishers at the event relied on replaceable cleats.
At the LPGA Tour’s Volunteers of America Classic, the 43-year-old veteran captured her eighth professional victory with a two-shot win at the Old American Golf Club outside of Dallas. She used the popular Pulsar® from Softspikes® in her FootJoy Icon shoes.
