BRENTWOOD, Tenn., – PrideSports confirms the winners of the PGA TOUR Champions’ Constellation Furyk & Friends, LPGA Tour’s Cognizant Founders Cup and European Tour’s ACCONIA Open de Espana all relied on the company’s replaceable cleat solutions.
Capturing his 56th professional victory, the 51-year-old winner of the Constellation Furyk & Friends, contested at the Timuquana Country Club in Jacksonville, FL., relied on the Pulsar® from SoftSpikes® in his Callaway footwear. The Pulsar was also the spike of choice for the winner of the ACCONIA Open de Espana, which was played at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid in Spain.
On the LPGA Tour, the winner of the Cognizant Founders Cup achieved a wire-to-wire victory and carded her 14th consecutive round in the 60s, matching a 16-year record held by Annika Sorenstam. She wore the company’s Pins Thintech XPS spikes in her Adidas ZG21 shoes.
“All players, regardless of age or gender benefit from the enhanced stability and traction provided by our replaceable spikes,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports/MacNeill-Pride Group.
