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 that its renowned spikes were used by both members of the victorious team at the PGA Tour's Franklin Templeton Shootout.
Trusting the Zarma® and ScorpionSTINGER™ models, respectively, the champions sealed up their record-breaking performance with a final round 56 at Tiburón Golf Club in Naples, FL. This victory closes a very strong 2013 campaign for CHAMP, which saw the brand capture more than 50 wins on professional Tours worldwide, including 21 on the PGA Tour and two major championships.
"Year after year, Tour players around the world continue to show a strong preference for our technologically advanced spikes," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "These competitors are among the most discerning athletes in the world when it comes to their equipment, so it is no surprise that they consistently choose the superior traction, comfort and stability found in our products."
A pioneer in spike technology, CHAMP is The #1 Brand on Tour. Its popular models have aided 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™ lines and an upcoming grip collection, which showcases a variety of groundbreaking features never before seen in the industry.
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 model showcases a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction at impact, promoting longer and straighter drives.
Designed with a strong emphasis on technical innovation and game-improving performance, five CHAMP grip models will be available to consumers in early 2014. The new collection has gained a loyal following among Tour players, who recognize the superior feel, durability and performance characteristics inherent to each line.
