CHAMP spikes help capture win at PGA Tour's Valero Texas Open

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 winner at the Valero Texas Open, the third oldest tournament on the PGA Tour.

Capturing his first PGA Tour title, the Australian relied on the popular ScorpionSTINGER™ spike - featuring spring-flex traction technology - to ensure optimal traction and comfort at the wind-swept AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio. The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes have been trusted by victors in three of the last four PGA Tour events and 32 of the last 44 major winners.

"When conditions turn firm and fast due to the infamous Texas breeze, players trusting the stability of our spikes have a competitive advantage over the rest of the field," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Week after week, the world's top golfers continue to count on CHAMP for the ultimate in comfort, traction and durability."

Beyond the cleat category, the company offers a wide range of products, including the Zarma FLYtee™ series and C GRIPS line, 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.
