Softspikes'® Cyclone Wins U.S. Open
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 19, 2012 ... Softspikes®, the world's best-selling golf cleat brand and maker of the #1 Cleat in Golf, stayed true to its words this weekend with its Cyclone cleat being worn by the winner of the U.S. Open. Softspikes/PrideSports claimed 47% of the plastic cleat field at The Olympic Club, with 8 out of the top 10 finishers donning the brand.
Softspikes' Cyclone cleat made quite the impression at the U.S. Open this week, being worn by the winner and a T-2 finisher. 62.5% of those who wore Softspikes chose the Cyclone model, known for its advanced rotational design which counteracts impact forces. The cleat features Softspikes' patented Dynamic Cleat Technology that provides the ultimate in traction and durability. This was Cyclone's 22nd Tour win since being introduced just last year.
"We're thrilled to see Cyclone win a major event." said John Hohman, Vice President of Marketing, PrideSports. "Seeing it atop the leaderboard at tour events throughout the year, we knew it was only a matter of time."
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
