Johnnie Walker Championship Finishes With Five Man CHAMP Playoff

CHAMP has had a remarkable year when it comes to exposure of CHAMP spikes at professional tour events and this week is no exception. CHAMP adds another PGA Tour and European Tour win to a growing list.

The Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in Perthshire, Scotland gave golf fans an exciting five man ‘CHAMP’ play-off before crowning the final champion. CHAMP is proud that along with the winner it was another weekend of CHAMP dominance. 77% of the entire field wore CHAMP Spikes, as did 8 of the top ten finishers. Of the five man play-off, all five of the participants wore CHAMP. This also marks a top ten for both Zarma Spikes and the FLYtee™.

At the Barclay Championship, although clouded with concerns about Hurricane Irene, the event was completed in four rounds. Finishing statistics showed that the CHAMP Zarma spikes enjoyed two top ten slots on the final leaderboard in good company with three spots in the top ten with CHAMP ScorpionSTINGER™ spikes.

“Although this weekend was dampened with rain from Hurricane Irene, the results for our CHAMP spikes continued to shine through with tremendous exposure on the professional tours,” states Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP / MacNeill Engineering. “The popularity of the CHAMP Zarma spike continues to grow in many different avenues. We have more tour players competing in it, which increases the exposure. CHAMP Zarma is following the same growth pattern that made our Stinger Collection so successful. We look forward to watching all of our spikes continue to bring golfers globally the best in traction technology.”
