BACK-TO-BACK MAJORS FOR CLEATED FOOTWEAR WITH PGA SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP WIN
One week after being worn by the world’s number one player in his PGA Championship victory, cleated footwear went back-to-back in major titles with the winner of the Senior PGA Championship wearing FootJoy® Fury featuring Softspikes® Pulsar golf cleats.
“Oak Hill Country Club played tough this weekend and it was a battle of attrition,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports®. “As usual, a player wearing footwear with replaceable cleated technology came out on top. It was certainly nice to see cleated footwear win on consecutive weeks in major events.”
In addition to the Senior PGA Championship, cleated footwear was also worn by the winners on other professional tours:
- LPGA Tour’s Pure Silk Championship – FootJoy Dryjoy Boa with Pulsar cleats
- Web.com’s Evans Scholars Invitational – Nike® Vapor React with Softspikes Black Widow cleats
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 www.golfspikes.com.
