BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 8, 2021 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of the PGA Tour’s Memorial Tournament, U.S. Women’s Open, European Tour’s Porsche European Open, Korn Ferry Tour’s Rex Hospital Open and the PGA Tour Champions’ Principal Charity Classic, all relied on the company’s replaceable spikes.
Among the five winners, each used a cleat from either Softspikes®. Their selections were based on personal preference and how each model interacts with turf conditions. The spikes used included:
- The Memorial Tournament – Cyclone from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy DryJoy shoes
- U.S. Women’s Open – Silver Tornado® from Softspikes® in Nike Air Zoom Victory 2 shoes
- Porsche European Open – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Contour shoes
- Principal Charity Classic – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Traditions shoes
- Rex Hospital Open – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Icon shoes
“For the third time in the past few weeks we had five winners on the biggest stages in professional golf choose 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.
