Champ To Showcase “My Hite” FlyTee, Flix Divot Tool And Tour-Proven Spikes Line At PGA Fall Expo, Booth 617

CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories – will showcase the new “My Hite” Zarma FLYTee, Flix Divot Tool, Tour-proven spike line and other products at the PGA Fall Expo, booth 617, Aug. 20-22 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The official tee of Demo Night – Aug. 20, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Callaway Golf Center – the Zarma FLYTee will be used in all club testing areas. Designed with a six-pronged head and shallow cup, this unique tee reduces friction for improved distance and accuracy. New MyHite models feature colored bands around the stem, so golfers can quickly and easily place the ball at a consistent height, ensuring repeatable performance.

Five-times more durable than traditional wooden options, the Zarma FLYTee is constructed using a market-proven bio-agent additive created by ECM Biofilms, Inc. This enables microorganisms to metabolize the plastic into humus, an organic matter which benefits the environment. The tees help facilities dramatically improve course operations, appearance and profitability by reducing consumption, decreasing tee litter and lowering purchasing expenses.

“Whether its spikes, tees or accessories, our goal is always to help golfers of all skill levels maximize performance,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “The Fall Expo is an exceptional venue from which to showcase our latest innovations to existing and prospective customers.”

CHAMP will also display its FLIX Divot Repair Instrument featuring a fun-to-use and practical “switchblade” design. The company’s most ergonomic offering yet, it’s an essential accessory for any golfer who cares about course conditions. Heavy duty enough to handle stubborn divots, yet collapsible with the push of a button, the new FLIX tool can be comfortably stored without fear of damaging pocket linings.

Catering to a variety of personal preferences, the device is available in orange, lime green, pink, black and white. A tremendous way for facilities and outing planners to uniquely promote their brands and functions, it features a magnetically attached ball-marker that can be customized to include company, club or event logos and names.

The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP is widely known for its acclaimed ScorpionSTINGER™ and recently-launched Zarma® spikes with patented cushion technology. Both are designed to ensure maximum traction, stability and comfort in all weather conditions.
