REPLACEABLE CLEATS SWEEP PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS & LPGA
The one constant on PGA TOUR, PGA Tour Champions and the LPGA Tour this past weekend was that the winners relied on replaceable cleat technology to keep them firmly planted on the ground. Those players shot a combined 64 under for the weekend.
On the PGA TOUR, the World Golf Ranking’s number 16 golfer shot a sizzling 26 under to capture the CIMB Classic by an incredible five strokes. Golf’s amazing iron man continued his hot play on the PGA Tour Champions, dominating at the SAS Championship and finishing 22 under par, six shots ahead of the field. The winner of the LPGA’s Hana Bank Championship was also a runaway winner with her 16 under performance.
“This week’s events were not even close for the winners wearing replaceable cleat technology,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “At PrideSports, we know the value that cleats provide and it’s nice to see the best players in the world – and everyday golfers as well – embrace our products.”
At the CIMB Classic, it was not only the winner wearing cleated footwear. 28 out of the top 33 finishers chose replaceable cleat technology over spikeless/tennis shoes.
