Capturing his second PGA Tour title, the winner relied on the ScorpionSTINGER™ model’s unique traction technology to successfully navigate the El Camaleon course in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes have been used by 32 of the last 44 major winners and are available in a variety of options.
