CLEATED FOOTWEAR DOMINATES FIELD AT HERO WORLD CHALLENGE
The limited field Hero World Challenge was not limited when it came to players choosing replaceable cleat technology with 16 of the 18 participants wearing footwear with cleats. This included the world’s number six player, who cruised to a four-stroke victory.
“The top players all rely on different clubs, balls and other performance-related equipment,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “The one thing that most agree on, however, is that they want footwear with cleats to give them the traction and stability they need to excel.”
Winners at the European Tour’s Afrasia Bank Maurius Open and the Asian Tour’s Queen’s Cup also chose replaceable cleat technology over spikeless/tennis shoes this past weekend.
