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 BMW Championship and European Tour's KLM Open.

Capturing his 10th PGA Tour title, the BMW Championship winner trusted the CHAMP ProStinger™ with its unique blend of metal and plastic traction technology to achieve a two-stroke victory at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forrest, IL. On the European Tour, the victor relied on the CHAMP ScorpionSTINGER™ at Kennemer Golf and Country Club in the Netherlands.

"When it comes to traction, golfers of all skill levels are seeking stability, comfort and peace of mind in all weather conditions, which is what our products provide."
