Softspikes Cyclone cleat captures wins on two different Tours

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -- Softspikes/PrideSports, the world's best-selling golf cleat brand and maker of the #1 Cleat in Golf, shined across professional tours this weekend with two major wins. Softspikes' Cyclone cleat proved its status once again by gaining victories at the PGA Tour Shell Houston Open and the European Tour Trophée Hassan II.

The Shell Houston Open resulted in a big weekend for Softspikes®/PrideSports cleats. The brand made a clean sweep for the Top 4 Leaderboard spots in Humble, Texas. Seventeen of the Top 22 finishers also chose the brand. Each of the top players wore a different cleat model, proving that Softspikes/PrideSports offer the full range of cleats. With patented cleat technology, Softspikes offers cleats designed for all golfers.

"As much as we love a victory, I am very proud to see such a variety of our cleat models finish at the top of the leaderboard," said John Hohman, Vice President of Marketing, PrideSports. "Offering cleats with various flexibility and traction ensures that Softspikes makes the best cleat for any golfer."

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

PrideSports was formed in January 2003 following Pride Manufacturing Company's purchase of Softspikes, Inc., and its sister company Trisport, Ltd. of England. This acquisition essentially formed the world's premier golf accessories company, as Pride and Softspikes are the world's leading golf tee and golf cleat lines, respectively. Today, PrideSports is the world leader in the design and manufacture of cleats, spikes and receptacles for the entire golf footwear industry.
