CHAMP ScorpionSTINGER spikes win LPGA Tour's CME Group Titleholders

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide - The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories - confirms its popular ScorpionSTINGER spikes were used by the winner of the LPGA Tour's CME Group Titleholders.

Relying on the model's spring-flex traction technology for optimum gripping and comfort, the champion improved to second on the Rolex World Rankings list as a result of her seventh career LPGA Tour victory - a two-stroke win in the season-ending event at The TwinEagles Club in Naples, FL. This continues the trend of the world's best players selecting CHAMP spikes.

"The world's best golfers across all Tours routinely select CHAMP because we provide options to suit all preferences, each with incredible traction, stability and comfort," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Our goal has always been to provide a solid foundation that does not shift or slip during the swing, allowing unimpeded motion for optimal performance."

The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes were used by three of the four PGA Tour major winners in 2012 and have been trusted by the champion at 30 of the past 40 majors.

Beyond the cleat category, the company offers a wide range of products, including the MyHite Zarma FLYtee™. Drawing from MacNeill Engineering's unrivalled 80-year heritage, the FLYtee line has quickly become one of the most-used tees by leading professionals worldwide. Made with extremely durable materials that last more than five times longer than traditional wood, its six-pronged head and shallow cup reduces friction, increases distance and improves accuracy.

With more than 100 active distributors, CHAMP is the world's largest manufacturer of replaceable spikes. The company produces more than 140 million spikes annually and is the dominant global brand in football, soccer, golf, baseball, cricket, rugby and other sports.
