BRENTWOOD, Tenn., – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of the PGA Tour’s Valspar Championship, LPGA Tour’s HSBC Women’s World Championship, European Tour’s Tenerife Open, Korn Ferry Tour’s Huntsville Championship and the PGA Tour Champions’ Insperity Invitational, all relied on the company’s replaceable spikes.
Among the five winners, each used a different type of cleat from either Softspikes® or CHAMP®, with their selection based on personal preference and how each unique model interacts with specific turf conditions. The spikes used included:
- Valspar Championship – Pins hybrid metal in ADIDAS Zg21 shoes
- HSBC Women’s World Championship – Pivix from SoftSpikes® in Nike Air Zoom TW
- Tenerife Open – Silver Tornado from SoftSpikes® in Nike Air Zoom Victory shoes
- Huntsville Championship – Pulsar from SoftSpikes® in FootJoy Traditions shoes
- Insperity Invitational – Scorpion Stinger from CHAMP® in FootJoy Traditions shoes
“Amateur golfers can benefit from the same traction technology that the world’s best rely on each week, the key is finding the replaceable spike that feels and performs the best for the individual,” 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.
