Champ Continues 75th Anniversary Celebration With Wins On Two Continents

CHAMP Spikes, the number one brand on tour, picked up another two wins this weekend with the PGA Canadian tour victory and the John Hammons LPGA Classic. CHAMP Spikes, which recently swept the 2006 “Grand Slam,” was also the spike of choice for the winner of the European Masters this time around.

The CHAMP Stinger™ wearing victor posted a 5-under 65 Sunday, finishing with a 14-under total to capture the Canadian Open crown — his second PGA TOUR title of the 2006 season. Over on the LPGA, the champ finished the 2006 John Q. Hammons Hotel Classic at 70 – 61 – 68 = 199 (-14) and defeated the Defending Champion by two strokes.

“It’s always satisfying to complete a weekend with another championship for CHAMP Spikes,” said Harris MacNeill, president of CHAMP. “This weekend is another example of how we became the number one spike on tour-by providing golfers different spikes for different terrains. This past weekend, the Deutsche Bank champion used our traditional Cermec spike and about half the field at the BMW Open utilized our top-selling Stinger spike.”

With these victories, CHAMP now owns 24 of 35 PGA TOUR titles, 14 of 21 on the European Tour and 12 of 21 on the LPGA in 2006, including the PGA “Grand Slam” as CHAMP swept all four majors.
