CHAMP Dominates In Open Championship Field

At the close of the 140th Open Championship held at Royal St. George’s, CHAMP spikes continue to be the choice in traction technology of the majority of the field in the major championships. With all of the added excitement this tournament consistently brings, more than half of the total field and five of the top ten finishers wore CHAMP spikes.

In other tour news, at the Viking Classic, there were similar results in spike statistics with 50% of the top ten finishers playing in CHAMP Spikes. CHAMP continues to see new players gravitating towards CHAMP spikes, in particular the CHAMP Zarma® Spikes. With two top ten finishes this week, Zarma sales continue to grow as does number of players on tour changing to play in the newest comfort cleat on the market.

“As always golf fans expectations of The Open Championship were exceeded this weekend. CHAMP congratulates all of the players and is thrilled to have such a strong presence at both PGA Tour events played” states Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP / MacNeill Engineering. “CHAMP Zarma continue to increase in numbers on tour as it has in sales at retail shops globally. The introduction of the Zarma Spikes and Zarma FLYtee™ has been instrumental in our growth plans for 2011 and, thus far, the results have surpassed our predictions.”
