CHAMP FLYTee selected official tee of Long Drivers European Tour

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 - announces its Zarma FLYtee has been selected as the official tee of the Long Drivers European Tour (LDET).

Preferred by numerous PGA Tour players and the official tee of the Long Drivers of America, the FLYtee features a unique six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction, increase distance and improve accuracy. The LDET will use a special logoed version of the FLYtee during all remaining competitions in 2013.

"Independent testing has proven that our Zarma FLYtee substantially outperforms other leading options on the market," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "When designing the product, our goal was to inject the golf tee with a dose of technology that would bring it into the 21st century and give players a boost in performance akin to gains from titanium drivers and graphite shafts."

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.

Beyond tees, CHAMP spikes are regarded as The #1 Brand on Tour®, and have been used by 32 of the last 44 major winners. They are available in a variety of options including the popular ScorpionSTINGER™ and Zarma® lines.
