CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance grips, golf tees and accessories – confirms its renowned spikes were used by winners of the European Tour’s Volvo China Open and the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic Presented by CTBC.

Capturing his third professional worldwide victory, the 29-year-old from China relied on the popular ScorpionSTINGER™ spike – featuring spring-flex traction technology for optimum grip – at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club. This historic victory marks the first time a Chinese-born player has won a European Tour title on home soil. On the LPGA Tour, it took a playoff to crown a champion at Lake Merced Golf Club in San Francisco. Just days after her 18th birthday, the number one ranked female golfer in the world captured her seventh LPGA victory also utilizing the ScorpionSTINGER model.

 “Both players faced unique conditions, strong fields and historical gravitas, but trusting in the stability of CHAMP spikes helped them find the winner’s circle,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “As the top golfers in the game begin to enter the heart of their seasons, they continue to rely upon our products for the ultimate in traction and comfort.”
