CHAMP Spikes Trusted by Honda Classic Winner. Victory Marks Seventh PGA Tour Title by CHAMP User in 2014

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 and five top-10 finishers at The Honda Classic.

Capturing his second PGA Tour title, the 24-year-old champion relied on the Zarma® model’s unique three material design with Lotus technology to win a four-man playoff at the difficult PGA National course in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. During 2014, CHAMP has continued to solidify its role as the #1 Brand on Tour, as seven of the first nine events have been won by players using the company’s famed cleats.

“When Sunday afternoon evolves into a sudden-death situation, we know that players trusting our spikes always have an edge,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “Our superior technology continues to be verified each week, by players around the world that prefer the outstanding traction, comfort and stability provided by CHAMP spikes.”

A pioneer in spike technology, the company’s popular models – including the ScorpionSTINGER™, and Zarma® – provided superior traction and stability to 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™ 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.
