BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – PrideSports® confirms that a member of the winning PGA TOUR Zurich Classic of New Orleans team relied on the company’s replaceable spikes.

Capturing his seventh PGA TOUR title, the 30-year-old winner relied on a combination of Softspikes® Cyclone® and CHAMP® ProStinger® in his FootJoy DryJoy shoes. Its use of multiple spike patterns stems from testing unique combinations on different areas of the shoe’s sole to determine differences in traction and feel, as well as impact on performance. Beyond the winner, six of the nine teams that finished T4 or better chose replaceable studs over studless alternatives.

“PGA TOUR players are extremely picky about the equipment they put on in competition and spend hours testing to find the best fits for their games,” said Joe Henderson, president of PrideSports. “These elite players greatly prefer replaceable spikes because of the immense traction benefits they provide, which improves accuracy, distance, and lower scores.”

Replacement Softspikes® and CHAMP® wedges can be purchased in the golf section of most major retailers, sporting goods stores, golf specialty shops and golf pros across the country. Spikes can also be purchased online from any of these stores, your favorite online store or directly from

PrideSports is the undisputed leader in the golf spike segment with its CHAMP® and Softspikes® brands. The company recommends golfers change their spikes every six to eight months – or even more frequently depending on usage – to ensure golfers get the most performance from their shoes.

CHAMP’s Helix®, Zarma Tour® and Stinger® cleats, along with Softspikes’ Pivix®, Pulsar®, Silver Tornado™ and Stealth® cleats, lead the OEM and aftermarket in performance and sales.
