World’s No. 4 Player Wins in Cleated Footwear

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Oct. 7, 2019 – The No. 4 player in the World Golf Rankings picked up another win for cleated footwear over the weekend at the European Tour’s Open De Espana. The win was the ninth of his professional career, and he bested the international field wearing adidas® Tour 360 Boa footwear with ThinTech EXP cleats.

“One of the brightest young stars in professional golf continues to climb to the top of the sport, and he’s doing it in cleated footwear,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “Across the globe, players continue to opt for replaceable cleats because of the traction, stability and control they provide.”

On the LPGA Tour, another young player picked up her first career victory at the Volunteers of America Classic wearing FootJoy® Dryjoy shoes with Softspikes® Pulsar cleats. On the PGA Tour, the runner-up at The Shriners Hospital for Children Open fell in a playoff wearing FootJoy® Dryjoy Tour shoes with Softspikes® Cyclone replaceable cleats. The final leaderboard featured 26 of the top 36 finishers choosing replaceable cleats over spikeless footwear.

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
