Replaceable spikes from PrideSports® trusted by winner of PGA Tour's Fortinet Championship and more

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., September 21, 2021 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of the PGA Tour’s Fortinet Championship, LPGA Tour’s Cambia Portland Classic, European Tour’s Dutch Open and PGA Tour Champions’ Sanford International, relied on the company’s replaceable cleats.

Capturing his third PGA TOUR title, the 30-year-old winner of the Fortinet Championship trusted the Pulsar® from SoftSpikes® to claim a one-shot victory at the Silverado Country Club in Napa County. The popular Pulsar® was also used over the weekend by the winners of the European Tour’s Dutch Open and PGA Tour Champions’ Sanford International. All three champions were wearing FootJoy Premier shoes.

At the LPGA Tour’s Cambria Portland Classic, the South Korean champion captured her ninth LPGA Tour title while wearing the company’s Pins Thin-Tech EXP spikes in her Adidas ZG21 Shoes.

“Elite players competing on courses with different types of turf and conditions know that replaceable spikes are the best way to maintain traction and optimize distance, accuracy and overall 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. Cleats can also be purchased online from any of these locations, your favorite online store or directly from
