CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories – confirms the winner of the 2011 PGA and European Tour money titles relied on its renowned spikes throughout the season.

Having previously wrapped up the U.S. honor, the world’s No. 1 ranked player secured The Race to Dubai crown this weekend by finishing in the top three at the Dubai World Championship, contested this past weekend at Jumeirah Golf Estates in the United Arab Emirates. In doing so, he became the first person in history to top the money list on both tours. This continued the trend of the world’s best golfers relying on CHAMP spikes, which have been used by 27 of the last 33 major winners.

“Winning both money titles is an incredible feat, requiring stellar play throughout the year and complete trust in one’s equipment,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “With CHAMP spikes this player guaranteed himself unmatched traction, stability and comfort.”

The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP’s wide range of technically-advanced products also includes the acclaimed ScorpionSTINGER™ and new Zarma® cleat with patented cushion technology. Beyond the cleat category, the company recently launched the Zarma FLYtee™. Drawing from MacNeill Engineering’s unrivalled 80-year heritage of industry-changing solutions, the FLYtee has quickly become one of the most-used tees on Tour. Made with durable, environmentally-friendly materials, its six-pronged head and shallow cup reduces friction, increases distance and improves accuracy.
