CHAMP to Showcase New ‘My Hite’ FLYTee, Flix Divot Tool and Full Line of Tour-proven Spikes at PGA Merchandise Show, Booth 2629

#1 Brand on Tour® Providing Complimentary Spike Installation at Demo Day

CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories – will showcase the new “My Hite” Zarma FLYTee, Flix Divot Tool and its full line of renowned spikes and accessories at the PGA Merchandise Show, booth 2629, January 26-28 in Orlando, Florida.

Extending the product line of the popular Zarma FLYTee, the new “My Hite” models feature a unique colored band around the stem that allows golfers to routinely place the ball at a consistent height to promote optimum contact on every swing. Like its predecessor, the new offerings are made with durable, environmentally-friendly materials, as well as a six-pronged head and shallow cup that reduces friction, promoting increased distance and accuracy.

The company will provide complimentary re-spiking services on Wednesday, January 25, at Orange County National Golf Club during the PGA Show Demo Day. Attendees wearing golf shoes are invited to visit the company’s station, where a representative will remove existing cleats and replace them with CHAMP models, which have been used by 27 of the last 33 major winners.

“The PGA Show has been an ideal launch pad for us to unveil our innovative solutions in a variety of categories to new and existing customers,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “For 80 years, we’ve left no stone unturned in creating technically superior products – be it spikes, tees or accessories – that all golfers can use to maximize performance.”

Also debuting at the PGA Show is the Flix divot repair tool, the lightest offering yet from the company. It shares the same durability as previous models, yet is almost unnoticeable when being carried in a pants pocket. The updated tool features a magnetic attached ball-marker that can be customized to include company, club or event logos and names.

The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP is widely known for its acclaimed ScorpionSTINGER™ and recently-launched Zarma® spikes with patented cushion technology. Both are designed to ensure maximum traction, stability and comfort in all weather conditions.

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.

CHAMP Representation at PGA Expo a Success

CHAMP spikes has participated in many venues to showcase products to the golf industry. Each year there are certain venues that are not to be missed and one of them is the PGA Expo. Held last week at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the PGA Expo once again proved to be the perfect setting to showcase products to consumers, retailers and global distributors for the World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology™.

There was a great buzz about the spike known as the ‘comfort spike’ and the latest in performance tees as many people who received a sample at registration were eager to learn more. The CHAMP booth had a constant flow of customers as the continued launch of the Zarma Collection, which consists of the CHAMP Zarma Spikes and new performance FLYtee™, were of top interest.

“As the VIP Tee Sponsor, CHAMP congratulates the PGA on the success of the 2011 PGA Expo. As a returning exhibitor, the results of this show for CHAMP were extremely positive as was the feedback we received from all who visited the booth,” states Marty Greenwald National Sales Manager of CHAMP / MacNeill Engineering. “The PGA Expo is a forum to educate companies on the reality of what is happening in our industry. One thing that was evident was that golf has embraced the Zarma Collection and that the Zarma Spikes and FLYtee’s are building in momentum and increasing in market share. We leave Vegas once again pleased to have participated, impressed by what the PGA offered this year and extremely optimistic on our direction and the reception of our latest products. All indication is that we will return in earnest for 2012.”

CHAMP to Showcase Zarma Collection at 2011 PGA Expo

Once again, CHAMP, will be present at the upcoming 2011 PGA Expo held at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is yet another year that CHAMP will be exhibiting at this tradeshow which plays an important part in introducing new products and other news items that impact the future of the golf industry.

This year momentum is growing for CHAMP as it continues to showcase the Zarma Collection which originally launched in January at the PGA Merchandise Show. First launched was the CHAMP Zarma Spikes known by many as the most comfortable spike on the market today. In a short time the professional tours began gravitating toward the Zarma spikes and educated consumers were asking about this new addition to the already desired CHAMP spikes family.

After consistent increase in exposure and growing sales, the next product that launched from CHAMP was the Zarma FLYtee™ which immediately saw success in the industry. Proving that the original wooden standard tees may not be enough to support the big hitters in today’s game, the Zarma FLYtee™ has quickly become a product in demand. Increasing weekly, players on the global professional tours are asking for the FLYtee™ and country clubs globally are changing to the FLYtee™ as their standard tee on course.

“CHAMP is proud of how quickly the Zarma Collection has become a leader in golf accessories in its first year. We look forward to the upcoming PGA Expo in Vegas and showcasing our brand. This is a great opportunity to meet with our west coast and overseas distributors and customers to showcase our successful range of newly launched products,” states Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP / MacNeill Engineering. “Each year we participate in the PGA of America trade shows we learn something new about the pulse of the industry, our business and the direction of golf in general. We regard this show as an important piece of our recipe for success and always look forward to the new opportunities it brings.”
