BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – The next generation of professional golf continues to impress on the biggest stage. The 102nd PGA Championship hosted by TPC Harding Park in San Francisco was claimed with the help of golf spikes.
At 23 years old, the winner was able to hold off a Sunday leaderboard full of superstars. With the help of traction technology provided by Softspikes® and Champ®, the Champion was able to hit the shots necessary to place him in the history books as the 102nd PGA Champion.
“Helping a player win his first Major is always a thrill for us as a company.” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports/MacNeill-Pride Group. “It’s exciting to see our golf spikes continue to win the biggest events.”
