Good news continues for The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® with the winner of both events playing in CHAMP spikes.

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.

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.
