BRENTWOOD, Tenn., August 14, 2012 ... Softspikes®, the world's best-selling golf cleat brand and maker of the #1 Cleat in Golf, dominated the leaderboard this weekend, showcasing their products at multiple tour events. In Kiawah Island, 7 of the top 11 finishers donned Softspikes/PrideSports at the PGA Championship. The brand also netted two wins this weekend as the winners of the LPGA and Web.com tour events both wore their cleats. At the Web.com Tour's Price Cutter Championship an overwhelming 32 of the top 38 finishers donned Softspikes/PrideSports.
Softspikes' Pulsar cleat topped the leaderboard this weekend placing 2nd at the PGA Championship and first at the LPGA Tour event. Pulsar was worn by the winner of the LPGA Tour's Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, while placing 2nd at the PGA Championship and 3rd at the Price Cutter Championship. Many Tour players rely on Softspikes' Pulsar cleat due to its exceptional grip and flexing legs, which provides more than twice the flexibility of any cleat on the market.
"Tour players and amateurs alike have made Pulsar one of our most popular cleat models to date." said John Hohman, Vice President of Marketing, PrideSports. "Since it's introduction back in 2003, Pulsar has been the choice for players from all over the world - as shown in the PGA Championship and the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic this past weekend."
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
