BRENTWOOD, Tenn., July 13, 2021 – The MacNeill Pride Group confirms winners of the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic and European Tour’s abrdn Scottish Open relied on the company’s replaceable cleat solutions.

Capturing his fourth PGA TOUR title, the 41-year-old winner of the John Deere Classic relied on the Pro Stinger from CHAMP® in his FootJoy Traditions shoes to fire a final round 64 in wet conditions at TPC Deere Run in the Quad Cities area. Beyond the winner, 24 of the top-33 finishers chose shoes with replaceable spikes over spikeless alternatives.  

On the European Tour, the winner of the abrdn Scottish Open captured a playoff victory at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland, using the Silver Tornado® from SoftSpikes®.
