MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide - The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories - confirms its celebrated spikes were used by the winner at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Adding his name to the long list of first time winners on the PGA Tour this season, the 22-year-old from South Korea relied on the CHAMP Zarma® spike - featuring patented Lotus technology - to ensure the ultimate in comfort and traction at TPC Louisiana. The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes have been trusted by victors in six of the last eight PGA Tour events.
"With wind gusts approaching 35 miles per hour on Sunday, we knew those trusting in CHAMP spikes would have a competitive advantage," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "The world's top players do not compromise when it comes to selecting equipment and our spikes offer the best stability, comfort and traction 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.
