Zarma FLYtee™ Enjoys Success at 2011 Open Championship

As CHAMP spikes continue to dominate in traction technology on the professional tours, there is a highly sought after collection from CHAMP that is receiving increased attention. With the success of the Zarma spikes, which continue to take market share and gain attention from the players on the professional golf tours, players were looking for the next greatest product from CHAMP. Since its launch at the PGA Merchandise Show the new Zarma FLYtee™ is the second product to be launched as part of the Zarma Collection. This high performance tee will provide increased distance from tee to green while outlasting any wood tee on the market today. It’s biodegradable make up and durable plastic design is preferred on all major golf tours. The Zarma FLYtee™ was widely used by the field at the 2011 Open Championship and has been gaining significant momentum at retail globally ever since its release a few months ago.

The FLYtee™ is eco-friendly, made with environmentally friendly biodegradable materials; a durable plastic design and a 6 prong head which makes it easier to place the ball on the tee and keep it stable. With its added durability and contoured cup, this tee gives top performance to all golfers, from amateurs to professionals. Available in 1 3/4″ (44mm), 2 3/4″ (69mm) & 3 1/4″ (83mm) sizes and an array of colors, the new Zarma FLYtee™ is a must for any golfer.

“CHAMP certainly is enjoying the success of the Zarma Collection starting with the Zarma spikes and now the Zarma FLYtee™. Producing a 1 ¾” tee gives players the opportunity to choose a wider variety of options to play off of the tee box. The success at the Open Championship is obviously great exposure and having players gravitate to the FLYtee endorses the quality of the product,” states Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP / MacNeill Engineering. “The direction is to provide golfers a sound product that fulfills their needs. We give golfers the freedom to think more about their game than to worry about their equipment. CHAMP will continue to give the players products they can trust.”

CHAMP continues to see new players gravitating towards CHAMP spikes, in particular the CHAMP Zarma® Spikes.
