At the mere mention of April the golf world turns it’s attention to the dramatic lead up to the Masters Championship where the world’s best will play the challenging course of Augusta National Country Club. Yet it would be hard to imagine missing out on the great competition prior to that major as in this week’s professional events on the PGA Tour at the Shell Houston Open and the European PGA Tour at the Trophy Hassan II.
Good news continues for The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® with the winner of both events playing in CHAMP spikes. The field at the Trophy Hassan II played in Agadir, Morocco recorded 72% competing in CHAMP spikes which finished with a three-man play-off, all three wearing the ScorpionSTINGER™. Of these statistics, seven of the top ten finishers were CHAMP wearers.
Similar results took place on U.S. soil as the winner of the Shell Houston Open also won playing in CHAMP spikes. The field playing at the Redstone Golf Club Tournament Course showed a strong participation of CHAMP spikes as well. With this win CHAMP spikes now has won 10 events on the PGA Tour in 2011.
“CHAMP congratulates both of these fine champions on a great weekend of golf,” states Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP / MacNeill Engineering. “Each yeargolf enthusiasts anticipate the upcoming Masters Championship and each year the players give us incredible golf in the events that lead up to the Masters. We look forward to the fierce competition that is set to take place at this years Masters event and continue to watch the CHAMP brand dominate the top of the leaderboards.”
Will the defending champion repeat last year’s performance? Will history be made that all four Major Championships are won by representatives of The European Tour in the same year? The answers remain to be seen, but one sure thing is that CHAMP spikes will have heavy participation from the players at the 75th Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia this year.
