MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (July 10, 2012) -- 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 U.S. Women's Open relied on its acclaimed ScorpionSTINGER™ cleats and popular Zarma FLYTee at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, WI.
On the European Tour, the victor at Le Golf National in Paris used the CHAMP ProStinger® model, a unique blend of plastic and metal traction technology.
"Our spikes have long been trusted by the game's elite players and now we are seeing more and more adopt the new FLYTee, which provides noticeable gains in distance and accuracy," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Golfers of all skill levels benefit from the increased traction, stability and comfort of CHAMP spikes and the unmatched performance and durability of our eco-friendly tees."
Featuring a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction while promoting increased distance and accuracy, the FLYTee is constructed using a market-proven bio-agent additive created by ECM Biofilms, Inc. This enables microorganisms to metabolize the plastic into humus, an organic matter which benefits the environment. CHAMP recently launched the MyHite Zarma FLYtee™, featuring a series of colored bands around the stem, allowing golfers to always place the ball at a consistent height for improved consistency.
