CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance grips, golf tees and accessories – announces winners of both the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and the Barracuda Championship, trusted in the company’s renowned spikes.

The 28-year-old Irishman captured his first PGA Tour victory edging out an elite field at Firestone Country Club, while in Nevada, the 40-year-old former Ryder Cup participant won his third tournament on tour. Both men trusted in the popular ScorpionSTINGER™ spike – featuring spring-flex traction technology, for optimum gripping ability, while the green friendly design minimizes marks on the green.  The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes have been used by 38 of the past 51 major champions, including the reigning PGA, Masters, U.S. Open and British Open winners.

CHAMP to Showcase Products at PGA Fashion & Demo Experience in Las Vegas, Booth #315

CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance grips, golf tees and accessories – will exhibit their entire range of products, including the new SLIM-Lok retention system and popular C1 putter grips, at Demo Station #DV8 and Booth #315 during the PGA Fashion & Demo Experience, August 17-20 in Las Vegas, NV.

Engineered to be the industry’s thinnest spike fastening system, SLIM-Lok precisely aligns with the trend toward lighter outsoles being offered by leading golf footwear companies. This exclusive CHAMP technology allows OEMs to increase mid-sole cushioning while helping players improve swing stability by getting lower and closer to the ground. Incorporating a patented built-in locking ring, SLIM-Lok eliminates the risk of spikes falling out of shoes and has already garnered numerous PGA Tour victories. SLIM-Lok System spikes are compatible with shoes already equipped with the Fast Twist® System or TRI-LOK® System, making conversion simple and easy.

Developed with an ultra-soft, super lightweight and great feeling polyurethane material, the C1 putter grip ($13.99) has quickly become one of the most popular choices in the jumbo grip market. New for this year are two bold digi-camo color options, the patriotic themed “Old Glory” and the bluegreen “Rain Forest.” An updated reminder-notch pattern offers unmatched control on the greens and with medium and large thickness choices, the C1 virtually eliminates wrist break-down for a more stable, repetitive and consistent stroke.

 “The PGA Show in Las Vegas has always been a great opportunity to present our technologically-advanced products to new and existing customers, golf industry professionals and the media,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “With dozens of major champions trusting in our spikes over the past decade, this is the perfect setting to showcase CHAMP’s future innovations.”

Beyond the products listed above, CHAMP will also exhibit its award-winning FLYtee lines, which feature a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction at impact for increased distance and accuracy, along with a variety of other premium accessories. Each will be on display at the company’s booth (#315) and the grips will be available for sampling at the Cascata Golf Club Demo Experience, August 17 (booth #DV8).

With more than 100 active distributors, CHAMP is the world’s largest manufacturer of replaceable spikes. The company produces more than 140 million spikes annually and is the dominant global brand in football, soccer, golf, baseball, cricket, rugby and other sports.
