MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (April 3, 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 winners of the Shell Houston Open, Sicilian Open and Kraft Nabisco Championship relied on its renowned spikes.
On the PGA Tour, the winner and five other top-10 finishers chose CHAMP at Redstone Golf Club in Humble, TX, and for the third consecutive week, the victor on the European Tour also played the company's famed cleat lines. Trusting the acclaimed ScorpionSTINGER model, the Kraft Nabisco champion captured her first major title with a dramatic playoff victory at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA.
"Players on all major Tours across the globe recognize CHAMP spikes as the best option to achieve optimal on-course traction, stability and comfort," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Our products have dominated the competition in 2012 and we see no signs of this momentum slowing."

Beyond the cleat category, the company recently launched the MyHite Zarma FLYtee. Drawing from MacNeill Engineering's unrivalled 80-year heritage of industry-changing solutions, the FLYtee line has quickly become one of the most-used tees on Tour. Made with durable, environmentally-friendly materials, its six-pronged head and shallow cup reduces friction, increases distance and improves accuracy.
