MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (Jan. 8, 2014) -- 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 and six top-10 finishers relied on its renowned spikes at the PGA Tour's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
Capturing his 11th PGA Tour title, the victor trusted the ProStinger™ model's unique blend of metal and plastic traction technology to help him secure the win with a final round 66 at the Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort in Hawaii. The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes have been used by 32 of the last 44 major winners and are available in a variety of options.
"With the start of the new season, we're picking up right where we left off as more top-finishers in in this champions-only event selected our spikes over all competitors," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "CHAMP's technologically advanced spikes are helping professionals and amateurs around the globe achieve their potential on the course by ensuring maximum traction, stability and comfort."
Trusted by countless professionals on all major tours worldwide, CHAMP offers a variety of spikes - including the popular the Zarma® and ScorpionSTINGER™ - to fit shoes from every major manufacturer.
Beyond the cleat category, the company offers a wide range of products, including the Zarma FLYtee™ lines and an upcoming grip collection, which showcases a variety of groundbreaking features never before seen in the industry.
Drawing from MacNeill Engineering's unrivalled 80-plus year heritage, the FLYtee line has quickly become one of the most-used tees by leading professionals worldwide. The new FLYteePRO model is infused with a specially-engineered polymer that makes it nearly indestructible. Like its predecessors, the PRO model showcases a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction at impact, promoting longer and straighter drives.

The new collection has gained a loyal following among Tour players, who recognize the superior feel, durability and performance characteristics inherent to each line.
