Cleats Win Again at WGC Mexico Championship
Posted on February 25 2020
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., February 24, 2020 – The final leaderboard at the PGA Tour’s WGC Mexico Championship featured some of the world’s top players and a winner once again wearing replaceable cleats from PrideSports® brands Softspikes® and Champ®.
“The winner at the WGC Mexico and nine of the 13 top finishers in a star-studded field all chose replaceable cleats over spikeless footwear,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “The winner has even tried spikeless footwear in the past and returned to wearing cleats, once again showing there is a performance advantage in cleated footwear – better traction, stability and control with every swing of the club.”
The footwear of choice for the WGC Mexico Championship winner was Nike React Vapor 2 with Softspikes® Silver Tornado and Cyclone replaceable cleats.
In other action on the PGA Tour this week, the winner at the Puerto Rico Open chose Nike Roshie G Tour footwear with Softspikes® Pivix replaceable cleats.
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.golfspikes.com.
