MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (Oct. 11, 2011) -- The Monday morning golf news showed that there is still great golf being played as the end of the year approaches. Today was a great day to celebrate for the company known as the #1 Brand on Tour®. The champions of both the Madrid Masters and the Frys.com Open played remarkable golf wearing CHAMP spikes.
On the European Tour, CHAMP is pleased to announce that the champion of the Madrid Masters won his first European Tour International victory wearing CHAMP Zarma® Spikes. CHAMP Zarma Spikes were introduced on tour less than a year ago and after seeing the number of players changing to the Zarma spikes growing each week, a future win seemed predictable. There were seven players in the top ten playing in CHAMP spikes and of the entire field 72% also chose CHAMP spikes.
Along with the Zarma Spike additional great news is that the champion in Madrid played using the new Zarma FLYtee™, also new to the market. The FLYtee has quickly become a draw for players looking for a performance tee. In similar fashion to the Zarma spikes, each week more and more players are switching to the FLYtee.
At the Frys.com Open there was a dramatic ending as the two CHAMP wearing players went six playoff holes before the final champion won his first PGA Tour event played at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin California. The winner was also joined at the top of the leader board by additional CHAMP supporters as half of the final competitors also completed the tournament wearing CHAMP spikes.
"It was a story book ending for CHAMP this week as three different products contributed to wins this week on the PGA Tour and European Tour. The ScorpionSTINGER™ is no stranger to the top of leader boards. We are thrilled to now have another product filling top spots with CHAMP Zarma." states Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP / MacNeill Engineering. "CHAMP is pleased at how quickly the golf industry and golfers worldwide gravitated to the Zarma products. It is confirmation for us that CHAMP is still the sought after innovative traction technology™ brand after more than 80 years of business."
