PrideSports’ Replaceable Spikes Used by LPGA Tour’s ANA Inspiration Champion

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., September 15, 2020 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms the winner of the LPGA Tour’s ANA Inspiration, as well as winners from this past weekend’s PGA Tour Champions and Korn Ferry Tour events, all relied on replaceable cleat solutions from Softspikes® and Champ®. 

Capturing the second major championship of the LPGA Tour season, the 29-year-old winner recorded a chip-in eagle at the final hole of regulation to force a playoff and eventual victory at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA. Collecting the first major title of her career, the South Korean relied on the Pulsar® from Softspikes in her Footjoy Dryjoy shoes.

On the PGA Tour Champions, the title at the Sanford International was captured a 56-year-old Spaniard who relied on metal spikes made by Champ. Finally, the winner of the Evans Scholars Invitational on the Korn Ferry Tour used the Silver Tornado® on his Puma Ignite shoes.
