BRENTWOOD, – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of PGA Tour’s WGC Workaday Championship and Puerto Rico Open, as well as the PGA Tour Champions’ Cologuard Classic, relied on the company’s replaceable cleat solutions.
Capturing his fourth PGA TOUR title, the 24-year-old WGC Workaday Championship winner used Pins Thin-Tech in his Adidas ZG21 shoes. Among the stacked field competing at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, FL, 20 of the top-31 finishers also relied on replaceable spikes. At the Puerto Rico Open, contested at Grand Reserve Country Club, the victor trusted the Pulsar from Softspikes® to propel him to a dramatic eagle, birdie finish to capture his second PGA Tour win.
On the PGA Tour Champions circuit, the winner of the Cologuard Classic at Omni National Tucson, also opted for the Pulsar from Softspikes® in his FootJoy Fury shoes. This multi-material cleat utilizes a counter-rotational design to provide superior balance and stability.
“Almost every week, the winner’s circles at the biggest events are occupied by players who use our replaceable spikes, because they offer substantially better traction to improve overall performance,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports/MacNeill-Pride Group.
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.
