Posted on July 22 2021
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 28, 2021 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of the PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship, PGA Tour Champions’ Bridgestone Senior Players Championship, European Tour’s BMW International Open and Korn Ferry Tour’s Work in Maine Open, all relied on the company’s replaceable cleat solutions.
Capturing his fourth PGA TOUR title in a dramatic playoff, the 31-year-old Travelers Championship winner relied on the Cyclone® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy Tour X shoes. Beyond the winner, 24 of the top-29 finishers chose shoes with replaceable spikes over spikeless alternatives.
Securing his third Major Championship on the PGA Tour Champions circuit, the winner of the Bridgestone Senior Players Championship contested at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio., relied on the Silver Tornado® from Softspikes® in his FootJoy DryJoy Tour shoes. The same spike and shoe combination was trusted by the champion at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Work in Main Open.
Rounding out the weekend winners who chose replaceable spikes was the champion at the European Tour’s BMW International Open, contested at Golfclub München Eichenried, who utilized the Pivix® by Softspikes® in his Nike Roshie shoes.
“Elite golfers competing around the world on courses with different types of turf and weather conditions know that replaceable spikes are the best way to maintain traction and optimize distance, accuracy and overall performance,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports/MacNeill-Pride Group.
