PrideSports’ Replaceable Spikes and Performance Tees Used by Winners at The Amundi Evian Championship, 3M Open and More

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., July 27, 2021 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms the winner of The Amundi Evian Championship, as well as the PGA Tour’s 3M Open and European Tour’s Cazoo Open all relied on the company’s replaceable cleat solutions.

Capturing her first major championship title, the 25-year-old winner of The Amundi Evian Championship relied on the Zarma Tour® from CHAMP® in her ECCO Biom G3 shoes to secure a playoff win at Evian Resort Golf Club in Évian-les-Bains, France.

On the PGA Tour, the winner of the 3M Open trusted Pro Stinger spikes from CHAMP® in his Nike Air Zoom TW20 shoes. This was his third PGA Tour title and he was among 26 of the top-33 finishers at TPC Twin Cities who selected replaceable spikes over spikeless alternatives. 

In Europe, the winner of the Cazoo Open at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales relied on Pulsar® from SoftSpikes® in his FootJoy Premier shoes.

“Nearly every week at the highest levels of professional golf we see the same trend, the best in the world use replaceable cleats to optimize their performance,” 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
