CHAMP spikes continue to dominate on European Tour with more wins

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 last six winners on the European Tour.

With a dramatic win on the second playoff hole, the Alfred Dunhill Links champion trusted the ProStinger™ model's unique blend of metal and plastic traction technology to earn a spot in the season-ending Race to Dubai. The previous week at Golf Club Torino, the winner relied on the ScorpionSTINGER™ in carding a back-nine 31 and a one-shot victory.

"Every week, our products are trusted by nearly three out of four European Tour players who demand ultimate performance on any terrain," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Players of all skill levels expect the traction, stability and comfort that are the foundation of our products."

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, including the popular ScorpionSTINGER™ and Zarma®.

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.
