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 the winner of the Volvo China Open relied on its renowned Zarma FLYTee and ProStinger® spikes to capture back-to-back European Tour victories.

The champion trusted the FLYtee's unique six-pronged head and shallow cup to help increase distance and accuracy off the tee, while the ProStinger's unique blend of metal and plastic traction technology ensured secure footing and comfort at Binhai Lake Golf Club in China.
