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 renowned spikes were used by the winners of The Barclays and European Tour's Johnnie Walker Championship.
Capturing the first leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs and his second PGA Tour title of the season, the winner of The Barclays trusted the ScorpionSTINGER™ model's unique traction technology at Liberty National Golf Club in Liberty City, NJ. The victor on the European Tour relied on the comfort and stability provided by the Zarma® line at Gleneagles in Scotland.
"Both of these events featured strong fields and it is no surprise that the top finishers trusted CHAMP spikes," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Our technologically superior designs provide golfers of all skill levels with increased traction, stability and comfort for optimum on-course performance."
The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes have been used by 32 of the last 44 major winners and are available in a variety of options.
Beyond the cleat category, the company offers a wide range of products, including the Zarma FLYtee™. Drawing from MacNeill Engineering's unrivalled 80-plus year heritage, the FLYtee line has quickly become one of the most-used tees by leading professionals worldwide. The new FLYteePRO model is infused with a specially-engineered polymer that makes it nearly indestructible. Like its predecessors, the PRO showcases a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction at impact, promoting longer and straighter drives.
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.
