Softspikes/PrideSports golf cleats win at Greenbriar Classic

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -- Softspikes/PrideSports, the world's best-selling golf cleat brand and maker of the #1 Cleat in Golf, proved its success winning through a rain delayed tournament. The Greenbriar Classic Winner persevered through the rain wearing Puma cleats featuring the PINS insert system. The PINS system reduces the distance between the ground and the player, enhancing the feel and control of every swing. In conditions such as those at the Old White TPC course last weekend, players rely on equipment proven to succeed.

As 21 of the Top 23 finishers chose Softspikes®/PrideSports cleats in White Sulphur Springs, the Performance Insert System (PINS) appeared five times among 9th place and higher finishers. PINS was created in 2010 originally for Adidas shoes and has quickly become the go-to system for many players and shoe companies alike. The low profile of the receptacle is not only more comfortable, but allows the player to be closer to the ground, maximizing control and stability.

"We congratulate the Greenbriar Classic winner on his first Tour victory," said John Hohman, Vice President of Marketing, PrideSports. "Earning a spot in next year's Masters is a great accomplishment."

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.
