CHAMP Spikes trusted by champion at Shell Houston 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 Shell Houston Open.

Earning his first PGA Tour title, the Australian sported the classic Wafer-Lite™ spike to secure ideal traction in wet conditions at the Golf Club of Houston in Humble, Texas. The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP has been trusted by victors in four of the last five PGA Tour events and 32 of the last 44 major winners. Each of the last 11 Masters champions has relied on the company's spikes.

"In times of challenging weather conditions, it's no surprise the top Tour players trust the traction our spikes provide so they can concentrate on executing memorable shots," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Golfers of all skill levels can enjoy the same comfort, traction and durability used by the game's best players week after week."

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 are now available to consumers. The new collection has gained a loyal following among Tour players, who recognize the superior feel, durability and performance characteristics inherent to each line.
