65% of the Plastic Cleat Field at FedEx St. Jude Classic Belonged to Softspikes/PrideSports
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 12, 2012 ... Softspikes®, the world's best-selling golf cleat brand and maker of the #1 Cleat in Golf, wrapped up an extraordinarily successful weekend as the respective winners of the PGA, LPGA, Champions and European Tour events all donned their product. In Memphis, 6 out of the top 7 finishers wore the brand, with PrideSports' PINS insert system claiming the top prize. Cyclone was worn by 3 of the other top 7 finishers, as well as the winner of the European Tour event.
Also in the spotlight this week was Softspikes' Pulsar cleat, which was worn by the winner of the LPGA Championship as well as finishing T-3 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The Pulsar cleat, along with the winning Cyclone cleat, both feature Softspikes' Dynamic Cleat Technology, delivering maximum comfort and performance to the player.
"This was a very exciting weekend for our company." said John Hohman, Vice President of Marketing, PrideSports. "To win four tour events in one weekend proves that our products are a force to be reckoned with."
Softspikes' patented Dynamic Cleat Technology allows its cleats to be responsive to all terrains - Tee Boxes, Fairways, Roughs, Greens, etc - providing confidence on every swing of the club. In other words, longer drives, better iron shots and lower scores. For more information on Softspikes, please visit www.softspikes.com
