BRENTWOOD, Tenn., February 8, 2022 – PrideSports® confirms winners from this past weekend’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, LPGA Tour’s Drive On Championship, Asian Tour’s Public Investment Fund Saudi International, DP World Tour’s Ras al Khaimah Championship and the Korn Ferry Tour’s Panama Championship, all relied on the company’s replaceable spikes.
Among the five winners, each used a cleat from Softspikes® with their selections based on personal preference and how each model interacts with turf conditions. In the case of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am winner, he briefly went to a spikeless shoe model before returning to spiked shoes in early 2021. This was the 32-year-old American’s first PGA Tour victory.
The spikes used by each winner included:
- AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Premier shoes
- Drive On Championship – Silver Tornado® from Softspikes® in PUMA shoes
- Ras al Khaimah Championship – Pins Thintech EXP in Adidas ZG21 shoes
- Public Investment Fund Saudi International – Pivix from SoftSpikes® in NIKE shoes
- Panama Championship – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Premier shoes
“We are just over a month into 2022 and our spikes have already been used by more than a dozen winners across all major golf Tours,” said Joe Henderson, President of PrideSports. “This adoption at the highest levels of the game is a testament to why traction and stability are so crucial to playing great golf.”
