Replaceable spikes from PrideSports® trusted by winners on multiple tours

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., November 23, 2021 – PrideSports confirms winners of the PGA Tour’s RSM Classic, European Tour’s DP World Tour Championship and LPGA Tour’s CME Group Tour Championship, all relied on the company’s replaceable cleat solutions.

Capturing his first PGA TOUR title with an impressive three-stroke victory at Sea Island Golf Club’s Seaside Course, the 30-year-old Oklahoma State standout relied on the Silver Tornado® from Softspikes® in his Nike React Vapor 2 shoes. Beyond the winner, 27 of the top-36 finishers chose shoes with replaceable spikes over spikeless alternatives.  

Rounding out the weekend winners who chose replaceable spikes was the champion at the European Tour’s season-ending DP World Tour Championship, who utilized the company’s Pins Metal Hybrid spikes in his Adidas ZG21 shoes. With the win, he became the first American to win the Race to Dubai.  At the CME Group Tour Championship on the LPGA Tour, the champion wrapped up an incredible season by taking home the title wearing Pins Thintech EXP spikes on her Adidas ZG21shoes.

“At every level of professional golf, across all types of golf courses, the best players in the world choose replaceable spikes 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
