ARNOLD PALMER INVITATIONAL CHAMPION CAPS BIG COMEBACK IN CHAMP® PIVIX CLEATS

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., March 12, 2019 – Not only did the winner of the PGA TOUR’s Arnold Palmer Invitational cap a five-shot rally with a 45-foot putt on the 18th hole but he also became the first to hole a tournament-winning putt with the flagstick in. And, he did it all wearing the Nike® Roshe G Tour golf shoe featuring Champ Pivix cleats.

“Once again, golf fans saw that winners wear cleats,” said John Hohman, senior vice president of marketing for PrideSports. “With 17 of the top 23 finishers at Bay Hill choosing to wear footwear featuring replaceable cleat technology over spikeless/tennis shoes, it proves once again that traction and stability are critical for players of all abilities.”

The durable Pivix cleats feature Champ’s patented “C” wear indicator which turns solid when spikes need to be replaced. The spring flex rotation grip provides the ultimate traction during the swing, allowing for an extremely stable yet comfortable platform system.

The winner of the PGA Tour Champion’s Hoag Classic also chose replaceable cleats, wearing FootJoy© shoes featuring Softpikes Pulsar cleats.

Replacement Champ Pivix and Softspikes Pulsar cleats can be purchased in the golf section of most large retailers, sporting goods stores, golf specialty and golf course pro shops across the country. Cleats can also be purchased online from any of these locations, your favorite online store or directly from www.golfspikes.com.

PrideSports is the undisputed leader in the golf cleat segment with its CHAMP® and Softspikes® brands. The company recommends golfers change their cleats every six to eight months – or even more frequently based on use – to ensure golfers get the maximum performance out of their footwear.

CHAMP’s Helix, Zarma Tour and Stinger cleats, as well as Softspikes’ Pivix, Pulsar, Silver Tornado and Stealth cleats, dominate the OEM and secondary market in terms of performance and sales. More information can be found at www.champspikes.com and www.softspikes.com.
