Winners on all major Tours chose replaceable cleat technology over the weekend
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., July 30, 2018 – Tour players around the globe are embracing the stability and traction provided by replaceable cleat technology with winners on the PGA TOUR, R&A Senior Championship, Web.com Tour, LPGA Tour and European Tour all sporting footwear featuring replaceable cleats.
The victory barrage was led by the world’s number one player capturing a dominating three-stroke victory in the RBC Canadian Open. At the RBC, 26 of the top 29 finishers chose replaceable cleats over spikeless/tennis shoes.
“Players have a choice in the type of footwear they wear on the course and we continue to see replaceable cleat technology lead the way,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “As the season has progressed, more and more players are recognizing the value of the stability provided by cleats in all conditions….much like last season when 46 of the 47 individual stroke play events were won by players wearing cleats.”
