BRENTWOOD, Tenn., – PrideSports® confirms the winner of the 2023 U.S. Open at Los Angeles Country Club this weekend.
A mere six weeks after his inaugural PGA Tour win, the co-leader on Sunday morning was able to survive a tough final stretch of holes to secure his first career Major win. The latest Major champion trusted Pro-Stinger spikes from CHAMP in his FootJoy Premiere Series shoes over the 4 days of competition.
The U.S. Open is known as one of the most challenging tests on the calendar in professional golf every year. At LACC this week, 88% of the field trusted replaceable traction technology from Softspikes® and CHAMP® to give them a performance advantage as they navigated the difficult course setup. When the leaderboard was finalized on Sunday evening, the top 16 finishers were all utilizing replaceable spiked footwear as opposed to a spikeless alternative.
“Congratulations to the first-time major winner and all of the competitors in this week’s Major championship!” said Joe Henderson, President of PrideSports®. “Golf season is in full swing and we’re delighted to see the increased use of replaceable spikes by the athletes on tour each week. We’ve designed these products with the top athletes in mind and aim to deliver performance advantages that will help them secure tour wins and Major championships.”
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.softspikes.com
