PrideSports’ Replaceable Spikes Used by Winner of BMW Championship and More

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., August 31, 2021 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms the winners of the PGA Tour’s BMW Championship, Korn Ferry Tour’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship and PGA Tour Champions’ Ally Challenge all relied on the company’s replaceable cleat solutions.

Capturing his fifth PGA Tour title in a dramatic playoff at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills,  MD, the winner of the BMW Championship relied on the Cyclone® from SoftSpikes® in his FootJoy DryJoy shoes. He was among 24 of the top-31 finishers at the FedEx Cup playoff event who chose replaceable spikes over spikeless options. 

On the Korn Ferry Tour, the winner of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship trusted the Silver Tornado® from SoftSpikes® in his Puma shoes.  Rounding out the weekend, the champion at the Ally Challenge relied on Pins Thintech spikes in his Adidas Tour 360 shoes.

“Regardless of course conditions and other factors, every week we see the best golfers in the world trusting replaceable spikes to provide the stability and control needed to help them achieve their full potential,” 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

PrideSports is the undisputed leader in the golf cleat segment with its CHAMP® and Softspikes® brands. The company recommends golfers change their cleats every six to eight months – or even more frequently based on use – to ensure golfers get the maximum performance out of their footwear. 

CHAMP’s Helix®, Zarma Tour® and Stinger® cleats, as well as Softspikes’ Pivix®, Pulsar®, Silver Tornado and Stealth® cleats, dominate the OEM and secondary market in terms of performance and sales. More information can be found at and
