CHAMP spikes win Northwestern Mutual World Challenge, Nedbank Golf Challenge

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 both the Northwest Mutual World Challenge and Nedbank Golf Challenge.

Capturing his second title of 2013, the winner of the Northwestern Mutual relied on the unique ProStinger® model and was among four top-five finishers to use CHAMP spikes at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA. On the European Tour, the victor relied on the ScorpionSTINGER™ at the Gary Player Country Club in South Africa.

"Around the world, professionals and amateurs alike have discovered the performance-enhancing qualities provided by our spikes," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "This fact is validated each week by the legions of Tour players that trust the superior traction, stability and comfort inherent to CHAMP products."

A pioneer in spike technology, CHAMP is The #1 Brand on Tour. Its popular models - including the ScorpionSTINGER™, and Zarma® - provided superior traction and stability to 32 of golf's last 44 major championship winners.

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.
