BRENTWOOD, Tenn., May 12, 2021 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo Championship, LPGA Tour’s Honda LPGA Thailand, European Tour’s Canary Island Championship, Korn Ferry Tour’s Simmons Bank Open and the PGA Tour Champions’ Regions Tradition, all relied on the company’s replaceable spikes.
Among the five winners, each used a cleat from either Softspikes® or CHAMP®. Their selections were based on personal preference and how each model interacts with turf conditions. The spikes used included:
- Wells Fargo Championship – Silver Tornado from SoftSpikes® in Nike Air Zoom Victory shoes
- Honda LPGA Thailand – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Icon shoes
- Canary Island Championship – Trisport Metal in FootJoy Premier shoes
- Simmons Bank Open – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Traditions shoes
- Regions Tradition – Silver Tornado® from Softspikes® in Under Armour shoes
“For the second week in a row we saw that winners on five of the most prestigious professional Tours in the world relied our spikes over spikeless options, because they provide the stability and traction needed to maximize performance,” 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.
