PrideSports® replaceable spikes used by RBC Heritage winner and more

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., April 19, 2022 – PrideSports® confirms the winner of the PGA TOUR’s RBC Heritage and Korn Ferry Tour’s Veritex Bank Championship relied on its replaceable spikes.

Capturing his 13th PGA TOUR title, the 28-year-old RBC Heritage winner relied on a combination of the Silver Tornado® from Softspikes® and directional cleat combo in his Under Armour UA HOVR Drive 2 shoes. He battled difficult wind throughout the tournament and eventually won in a playoff on the 18th hole at the famed Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head. Beyond the winner, 26 of the top-34 finishers chose shoes with replaceable spikes over spikeless alternatives. 

At the Korn Ferry Tour’s Veritex Bank Championship, contested at Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington, TX., the winner trusted the Pulsar® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy Tour Alpha shoes.

“Our replaceable spikes have been used by nearly every winner on the PGA Tour in 2022 and the momentum shows no signs of slowing down as we head into the heart of the season,” said Joe Henderson, President of PrideSports.

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

PrideSports is the undisputed leader in the golf cleat segment with its CHAMP® and Softspikes® brands. The company recommends golfers change their cleats every six to eight months – or even more frequently based on use – to ensure golfers get the maximum performance out of their footwear.

CHAMP’s Helix®, Zarma Tour® and Stinger® cleats, as well as Softspikes’ Pivix®, Pulsar®, Silver Tornado and Stealth® cleats, dominate the OEM and secondary market in terms of performance and sales.
